The Kingsley School Celebrates Focused and Determined A-Level Students

Despite the unprecedented challenges over their two Sixth Form years, Kingsley girls of all abilities and backgrounds have achieved outstanding 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.

Amongst the excellent destinations and results are:

Sophie Maguire, A*A*A*, studying Modern Languages and Culture at Durham
Emily Talbot, A*A*A*, studying History at Durham
Georgie Green, A*A*A, studying Politics and International Relations at Bristol
Laura Silk, A*A*A, studying Music at Durham
Head Girl Beth Rickett, A*AA, studying History at Edinburgh
Head Girl Lily Clarke, A*AA, studying Philosophy and Economics at Edinburgh
Connie Saych, A*AD*, studying English Literature at Warwick
Gemma Hotchkiss, AAA, studying Music at Edinburgh
Ella Owrid, AAA, studying Psychology at Durham
Farah Al Dabbagh, who achieved D*D*D in Cambridge Technicals, who is studying Business and Management at Oxford Brookes

Alongside university destinations, students are also opting for apprenticeships, including Mia Bermingham, BBB, who will be starting an apprenticeship in quantity surveying.

Kingsley also runs AS courses for girls in Year 12 where similar excellent results were seen. 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: “This is a very hard working year group with a focused and determined approach to overcoming the many challenges they have faced. We are immensely proud of every single one of them and we hope that they carry with them the strength they have acquired through persistence and resolute ambition.”

Acting Headteacher, Mrs Christina McCullough, says: “Congratulations to all our Sixth Form girls. We are extremely proud of the outstanding academic and personal achievements that they have all achieved this year despite working through very challenging circumstances. These excellent achievements are testament to the hard work and resilience of our students; strengths they will certainly carry with them into their adult lives. We wish them all the very best in their next chapter. Esse Quam Videri.”

Mr Richard Nicholson, Principal of Warwick Independent Schools Foundation, says: “For our leaving Upper Sixth pupils, this has been a most challenging two years. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, they continued to make the most of all our Foundation schools offered, showing extraordinary resilience in the face of changing circumstances, most especially around the process for the awarding of A level grades. They are to be commended on their dedication and tenacity in such unique circumstances. We wish all our pupils well for the next stage of their journey, and look forward to staying in touch with them as they forge their path beyond our doors.”
