Kingsmead are celebrating their best ever A level results ever with 100% pass rate. The increase in results has been achieved by the hard work of students, staff, parents and governors with a relentless focus on the quality of teaching.
Mrs Maria Mincher (Head of School) was delighted that the achievement in A level subjects now far exceeds the national average. “Performance in Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, English, Geography and Music demonstrates we add significant value to our students’ academic outcomes.”
The outstanding increase in academic success has been achieved whilst maintaining the already high standards in vocational subjects. Students this year matched and in a number of subjects exceeded last year’s vocational results, which were considerably above the national average. The excellent set of results confirms Kingsmead’s position as one of the top establishments in the area for A level and vocational studies.
Kingsmead students have risen to the challenge set by the more rigorous and demanding A level exams. Despite the changes to the qualifications nationally, provisional indications are that 82% of grades achieved were A*-C and 50% A*-B.
