20th August 2020 — Kingsley welcomes the decision to award GCSE and A-Level students their centre assessed grades: it is only fair that these are based on the achievements of each individual and the professional judgements of their teachers. These results reflect the consistent quality of hard work undertaken by students of all abilities and backgrounds and teachers throughout their courses.
Of all grades, 27% were awarded at level 9-8 (A* equivalent), 51% at level 9-7 (A* – A equivalent) and 99.2% at level 9-4 (A* – C equivalent). Top marks were awarded across the board in all subjects, with exceptional performances in all three sciences, PER, Modern Foreign Languages, History, Geography, PE and Music.
Among the many individual success stories were:
Isabella Fitches, who achieved 9 grade 9s, 1 grade 8 and an A in additional mathematics.
Jessica Ellis, who achieved 8 straight grade 9s.
Cecilia Goldwin, who achieved 7 grade 9s and 3 grade 8s.
Hannah Dennison, who achieved 3 grade 9s, 6 grade 8s and 1 grade 7.
Charlotte Pimm-Smith, who achieved 3 grade 9s, 4 grade 8s and 3 grade 7s.
Emily Mortimer, who achieved 3 grade 9s, 3 grade 8s and 4 grade 7s.
Imogen Lomas, who achieved 2 grade 9s, 3 grade 8s and 4 grade 7s.
Alys Clarke, who achieved 7 grade 8s and 3 grade 7s.
Mrs Christina McCullough, Deputy Head, says: “We are full of pride for all of our students and the exemplary way in which they have dealt with this very difficult year. These excellent results reflect the hard work of the students and the strong partnership between themselves, staff and parents. We are extremely proud of the well-rounded individuals they have become. They have conducted themselves with grace and courage and we look forward to seeing them continue to flourish in the future.”
