A Level Students Celebrate Excellent Results and Diverse Destinations

Kingsley girls, their parents and staff are celebrating in recognition of the outstanding personal achievements that have secured a diverse range of choice destinations for their leavers this year.

The school achieved a 100% pass rate with almost a third of all students receiving A* -As. Two thirds of all girls achieved A*-B grades and 90% attained grades A*-C.

Amongst the excellent results and destinations are:

Jess Harper Radley, studying Music at Edinburgh University
Lily Holbrook, studying Marine Zoology at Newcastle University
Freya Eaton, who has juggled study with her intensive professional GB ski training and competing, studying Sport and Social Science at Bath University
Olivia Inchley, studying Geography at Reading University

Kelly MacDonald, studying Economics at Newcastle University
Ellie Varley, studying Chemistry at Lancaster University

Head Teacher, Ms Heather Owens, says: “I am delighted by the girls’ academic excellence and individual successes. This summer we have celebrated some of our old girls graduating and beginning careers as doctors and vets, and today we have current girls beginning their journeys in an exciting and incredibly diverse range of subjects. The ambition and pursuit of these personal goals is inspiring, demonstrating the Kingsley ‘can-do’ ethos that we value so highly. I am very proud of the hard work of the staff and girls –  and excited to hear about their continued successes in the future!”
