Outstanding A Level Results

Congratulations to all students and staff on a record set of A Level results with a remarkable 35% grades at A*, the highest percentage since the A* grade was introduced, 75% at A*/A and 96% grades at A*/B.

32% girls achieved 2 A* or more and 88% achieved all A*-B with 18.4% getting at least 3 A*s, an extraordinary feat.

Bucking the widely-reported national trend for fewer girls to study STEM subjects, 74% of KEHS students took at least one STEM subject (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths); 39.5% students studied Mathematics, with 93% of these grades at A*/A. Similarly, 24% students studied at least one Modern Foreign Language (French, Spanish or Russian) and 91% of the grades were at A*/A.

12 students have achieved the grades required to take up their places at Oxford or Cambridge, to study a range of subjects from Philosophy, Spanish and Portuguese to Engineering and Natural Sciences.

Principal Ann Clark said, “I am delighted with these exceptional results which are a testament to the determination, hard work and commitment of our students, together with the professionalism and dedication of the staff at KEHS.”
