Another Impressive Year for Kingsley Girls

The Kingsley community is celebrating superb results in this year’s GCSE examinations, following on from a fantastic set of A-level results.

83% of students attained level 9-7 (A*-A equivalent) grades. Of all grades, 39% were at level 9-7 (A*-A), 69% were at level 9-6 (A*-B equivalent) and 98% at level 9-4 (A*-C equivalent). Exceptional performances were seen in all three sciences, with multiple A*As and a 100% pass rate. Top marks were also seen in music, geography, religious studies, PE, Spanish, Latin, history and drama.

Among the many individual success stories were:

Emily Talbot, who achieved 8 level 9-7 grades, including 5 grade 9s
Lara Whitmore, who achieved 8 level 9-7 grades, including 4 grade 9s
Lily Lawson, who achieved 9 level 9-7 grades, including 4 grade 9s
Imogen DeArmitt, who achieved 9 level 9-7 grades
Gemma Hotchkiss, Lily Clarke and Georgie Green, who all achieved 7 level 9-7 grades

Head Teacher, Ms Heather Owens, says: “I am full of pride for the girls’ individual success stories today. The results reflect the hard work of the girls and the strong partnership between students, staff and parents. They also reflect Kingsley’s academic rigour across the board with top grades improving yet again. It is particularly impressive that the girls achieve so well academically whilst balancing their many extra-curricular commitments, from Duke of Edinburgh, to LAMDA, performing and sporting successes. We are extremely proud of the well-rounded individuals they have become, and look forward to seeing them continue to flourish in the future.
