King’s ranked highest in Worcester for A level results

This week the Department of Education published the 2019 A level results and we are delighted to share the news about King’s Worcester. In Worcester, King’s topped the pile with 32% of our pupils achieving A level grades at AAB or above.

With 133 pupils taking 408 exams in 2019, all of whom are entered for at least three A level subjects, this news is testament to the commitment of pupils and staff. Acting Headmaster, Jon Ricketts praised them on their achievements, commenting “I am delighted with the hard work of both the pupils and the staff and this outcome is well deserved on their part.”

To be recorded as achieving AAB or higher, pupils have to enter at least two facilitating subjects which include: biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, further mathematics, geography, history, English literature and classical or modern languages.

When sharing the news with our Upper Sixth, we asked why King’s pupils achieve such success in exams: “It’s not just that the teachers are great here, they know their subjects inside and out, they make learning fun and engaging too. What sets King’s apart is the pupil-teacher relationships, they really want everyone to do well and always go the extra mile to help pupils achieve their very best.” Harry, Upper Sixth pupil.

The news received this week follows the recent successes of many of our current Upper Sixth pupils, from the five pupils who have received Oxbridge offers and Imogen Gillgrass who was offered 11 Sports Scholarship offers to America, to all the other exciting daily offers being received by our Upper Sixth pupils. There really is a buzz of excitement around the Sixth Form at present!
