Over half of our year 11 pupils have achieved 10 or more top grades at GCSE today. This, combined with the fact that last week over half of all A levels were A* or the IB equivalent, makes 2017 an exceptional year for examination results at King’s.
The 159 boys gained 1,375 A* grades at GCSE, with over a third of pupils (34%) scoring a clean sweep of A*s in their subjects. Overall, an amazing 83% of all GCSEs were graded A*, and 96% were graded A* or A.
These successes follow the school’s outstanding sixth form results, where half of all results were graded A* or the IB equivalent (7 at higher level).
We are delighted for our pupils with their tremendous results. However, we are mindful that some pupils may have concerns about individual papers and there are senior members of staff at hand to provide support.
Please see here for a breakdown of the GCSE results.
King's College School does not yet have number-graded GCSEs (but will from 2018 onwards) and there has been some debate amongst this in the media. See Head Master Andrew Halls's comment on this on the BBC here.
