2017 GCSE Results

Our initial analysis shows that 85% of Kings’ School pupils achieved 5 or more standard passes including Maths and English in their GCSEs, with 97 per cent gaining at least GCSE A* – G passes overall. The changes to the assessment system make it very difficult to make comparisons with previous years, but it appears that the pupils (and their teachers) have successfully risen to the challenge of the new courses.

We are delighted with these results which reflect the hard work of our pupils supported by their parents and the school’s staff.
