Maria Mincher (Head of School) comments, "We are all proud of the outstanding achievement of our students and the tremendous effort our teachers have put in. We are particularly pleased to share that the emphasis on challenge and academic rigour in lessons have contributed to significantly more 5+ grades and 7-9 grades.
A special mention should go to Roan Lilly and Kieran Ramah who achieved eleven 9-7 (A**-A) grades. Well done!
Amongst the top performers were Megan Renshaw (9, 9, 9, L2D, 8, 8, 8, 8, 7, 6), Roan Lilly (9,9,9,A*,L2D,8,7,7,7,7), Holly Barfield (9,9,9,A*,L2D*,7,7,6,5), Kieran Ramah (9,9,A*,L2D,8,8,7,7,7,A), Daljeeven Bahia (9,L2D*,L2D*,8,8,8,7,7,7, 6), Lara Tolley (9,9,8,8,8,7,6,6,6).
In a national picture where grades 9s are rare we are proud of so many Kingsmead students gaining multiple grades 9s. This shows the early impact of increased focus and provision for our more able students. These include: Roan Lilly (Maths, Combined Science), Megan Renshaw (Combined Science, Art), Holly Barfield (History, Combined Science), Kieran Ramah (PE), Lara Tolley (English Literature).
Chris Hunt (Chair of Governors) added, “I am delighted by these much improved results and pleased to see so many of these Year 11s returning next year to continue their studies at Kingsmead in our sixth form which performed so well at A level this year.”
Mike Donoghue (CEO of JTMAT), “The results are encouraging and reflect the positive new direction the school is taking. It’s clear to see why so many parents are choosing Kingsmead as a first choice from Stafford and Rugeley and why our 6th form is receiving more interest from students outside Kingsmead.”
