Courageous Kingsley Girls Secure Bright and Varied Futures

Despite the anxious and unique set of circumstances, Kingsley girls of all abilities and backgrounds have exceeded expectations with fantastic personal achievements in their A-level results this year, securing a diverse range of first choice destinations. These results reflect the quality of hard work undertaken by students and teachers and the efforts of staff to compile a persuasive evidence base to underpin their grading estimates.

The Kingsley School sixth formers have achieved a 100% pass rate, with 35% of grades A* – A, and 71% of grades A* – B. Alongside exceptional performances in A-level subjects, a number of students participated in Cambridge Technical courses, in which 100% Distinction* grades were awarded in Business Studies, IT and Health and Social Care.

All girls who applied have secured places at their first choice universities, with the remainder opting for gap year opportunities and deferred entries for next year. Amongst the excellent destinations are:

Head Girl Rebecca Winn, who has already moved to Florida Gulf Coast University after signing to train and compete in the USA’s highest university division for swimming and diving.
Head Girl Lily Constance, studying Neuroscience at University of Manchester
Evelyn O’Sullivan, studying Bio veterinary Science at Harper Adams University
Lily Williamson, studying Childhood Studies at Aberystwyth University
Meghna Gupta, studying Hospitality at Oxford Brookes University
Jenna Morgan, who has secured a Nursing place at University of Leeds following a gap year Round Square opportunity at Rockport School in Ireland
Hollie Jones, studying Veterinary Science at University of Liverpool
Sophie Walsh, studying Pharmacology at University of Leeds
Matilda Dumas, studying Agriculture with Animal Science at Harper Adams University

Year 12 girls at Kingsley secured brilliant AS Level results, with exceptional performances in English, French, Geography, Economics, Art, Politics and Psychology. Having secured such excellent grades, this cohort has set a very high standard with a strong indication of excellent A-level results next year.

Head of Sixth Form, Dawn Morgan, says: “At Kingsley, we strive to encourage a strong work ethic with students adopting good study practices from the outset and these fantastic results reflect our girls’ and staff team’s hard work throughout their courses. All girls have adapted to very difficult circumstances and we wish to congratulate each of them warmly on these well-deserved achievements. They have, without exception, conducted themselves with grace and courage and we are immensely proud of them.”
