Sixth Formers at Kingsley School are celebrating a great set of A-level results, with their A*, A and B grades up 10% since last year.
One of the most remarkable results today is from Tobias who joined in Year 10 for just one term. When Tobias first arrived at Kingsley School he wasn’t even going to stay one day! He leaves 4 years later with an impressive 560 UCAS points (the equivalent of 4 A* at A level) and a place at his chosen University.
Tobias said “I have been at Kingsley School for 4 years, I wouldn’t want to have gone anywhere else. I cannot believe I have achieved such wonderful results today, a huge credit to my teachers for supporting me all the way and believing in me. Thank you especially to Father Steve, Mrs Roome, Wendy Flint and Mrs Stella. I cannot tell you how grateful I am. I took the school’s advice to take a combination of A-levels and vocational courses: German, Business Studies, Outdoor Education and Sport. I am returning to the UK to study at Falmouth University, I am so happy, I cannot wait to tell my Mum!”
Arriving at school early on this morning was Deputy Head Student, Alex, who was also equally pleased with his results and is heading off to his University of choice. Alex’s Mum, Sarah O’Connor said “I cannot believe Alex’s Kingsley School days are over. He has been here since the nursery! Time for him to head out into the world, he is off to UWE to read Business Entrepreneurship. I am incredibly proud of him.”
Wendy Flint, Sixth Form Manager, added: “I am really proud of Alex, he has grown into an absolutely delightful young man, a wonderful role model to other pupils in the school. Year 13 have all been a charming bunch of students, I will miss them and look forward to everyone staying in touch with me and the school with all their news.”
Headmaster Simon Woolcott said ‘The pupils thoroughly deserve their success today. I am thrilled we have a 100% pass rate, well done everyone. For me, results day is about the wonderful mix of students at Kingsley, students such as Leon who sat 6 A-level maths papers and achieved 595 points out of 600! Incredible. Tobias, whose report from his previous school told me he was ‘unteachable,’ today racked up an impressive UCAS score. Alex, a really charming young man, will go far. Our collective A level results are up 10% versus last year, which is testament to all our students and our talented teaching and support teams for always uncovering the potential of each and every student and encouraging them to achieve above their expectations.”
