Students at Kingswood School are celebrating again this week with some excellent GCSE results. Amid the uncertainty of a new grading system introduced in some subjects this year, an impressive 29% of all grades were at A*and 95% at A*-C.

Amongst many exceptional individual results, the top performers were Callum with 12A* grades, Abigail with 11 A* grades and Anastasia, Sophie, Daniel, Isla and Daisy with 10A* grades. Over 30 students achieved at least 5 A* grades.

Headmaster Simon Morris commented, “I am delighted to see so many students achieving such terrific results. They have naturally been aware that they are in some subjects taking new-style examinations which have deliberately been made more demanding and I applaud them for taking on this challenge so impressively. This bodes extremely well for their Sixth Form careers, where they are very strongly placed to continue Kingswood’s tradition of developing students’ all-round excellence.”
