Thanks to our innovative approach to learning and first-class teaching provision and support, pupils at King’s Worcester perform exceptionally well at both GCSE and A-level and achieve excellent results year on year.
They go on to pursue a whole range of career paths, with many securing university places at Oxford and Cambridge and other leading Russell Group Universities.
As ever, I am extremely grateful to our teachers, who maintain an exceptional standard of education whilst also offering unprecedented pastoral support for our pupils.
Record-Breaking Results A-level Examination Results
We are delighted to recognise the achievements of A-level students this summer, as a record-breaking 93% of students achieved all their grades at A*-C. Overall, 19% of all grades awarded were A*, 45% of results secured were A*- A and 77% were graded A*- B.
These exceptional results, with the A* to C percentage being amongst the best in the School’s history, are a clear demonstration of the hard work and unwavering commitment of this year group.
This year saw the first return to normal grading since the pre-COVID year of 2019 and the subsequent impact of CAGs, TAGs or assisted grading. The outstanding resilience displayed by our students, who had never taken public exams before this summer, is truly commendable.
This year, with one of our largest ever cohorts, saw students sit 377 examinations in 24 subjects, which included 9 STEM subjects, 3 Modern Languages, 3 Arts, 2 Classics, English, Business, History, Geography, Politics, PE and Religion and Philosophy.
We are proud that the 2023 percentages for A*- A, A*- B, and A*- C are all higher than in 2019. We applaud the students’ outstanding achievements and are thrilled to celebrate their incredible results.
This summer’s incredible news confirms once again our exceptional provision and continuing academic excellence and follows on from us achieving a much sought-after ranking in The Sunday Times’ Top 10 Schools in the West Midlands for Academic Results earlier this year.
The accomplishments of this year’s A-level students were truly remarkable, especially as they were taking public examinations for the first time this year and had to face many interruptions over the past few years. Over 414 A-levels and EPQs (Extended Project Qualifications: UCAS equivalent to half and A-levels) were taken.
We are proud that over 85% of students obtained their first-choice university. This includes five students who have secured confirmed places at Oxbridge, five students who have received offers for Law degrees, 14 students who have received offers to study Medical or Veterinary-related degrees and 24 students who have been offered Business and Economics related degrees. Other King’s students will be studying a wide range of subjects at leading institutions, such as Architecture, English, Geography, History, Maths, and Product Design.
Amongst those celebrating this summer were students Rafay S and David G, who gained places on the prestigious PWC Business, Accounting and Finance Apprenticeship, and Jude S, who will be joining Rolls Royce on their Finance and Apprenticeship Scheme. These students will gain real hands-on work experience whilst studying towards Masters’ level professional qualifications.
GCSE Examination Results 2023
We were also delighted to celebrate the achievements of our Year 11 students in this year’s GCSE exams.
The headline statistics are very heartening, with 62% of entries receiving grades of 9-7 and 40% of all grades being 9 or 8. 30% of this year’s cohort received 10 or more top grades of 9-7.
We are very proud of this group of devoted and enthusiastic pupils, who have delivered some remarkable results this year. We must not forget that from Year 8 the education of this cohort of fine pupils has been significantly disrupted by the pandemic, yet they have never been found wanting.
As well as working for their GCSEs, they have participated in myriad co-curricular activities that showcase their commitment to learning, teamwork and personal development. Their achievements are a testament to their unwavering dedication and hard work, and we look forward to watching them continue to flourish along with our new joiners at King’s Sixth Form.
