10th August 2021 — Students at Kingswood School are today celebrating excellent A Level results, with 63% of all grades at A* or A, 97% at A*-C and a 100% pass rate.
Amongst the many high achievers, particularly outstanding results were achieved by Mayo and Saho with 5 A* grades each and a further fifteen students who have achieved either 3 or 4 grades at A*. Harry and Ethan both achieved the highest distinction in their BTec in Sport and now advance to places at their first-choice universities.
With over 85% of all grades at A*- B, across a wide breadth of subjects, the vast majority of our students who applied have gained acceptance at a university of their choice. We are delighted that Kingswood sixth form has given our leavers a springboard into first choice universities, internships, and apprenticeships as well as exciting gap year opportunities.
Headmaster, Andrew Gordon Brown, commented:
These results are exceptional, in every sense of the word, and I join with our Year 13 students in their celebrations today; they should feel very proud of what they have achieved in such difficult circumstances. This was an A Level journey full of challenges, but the students have shown through a robust and fair assessment process strong evidence to justify these outstanding grades. I am very grateful to our teachers who worked hard to support and assess each student with such dedication, and I am full of admiration for our young people who have risen to the occasion.
We also celebrate today the strong bonds of friendship across this cohort, forged during the many experiences they have shared on the sports field, in the theatre, in the jazz band or walking the surrounding hills on expedition. The class of 2021 leave Kingswood with our heartfelt thanks and best wishes as they begin the next leg of their journey, for which they are certainly well-equipped and ready to make a difference in the world.
