A-Level-Results-2015-1200

The A level class of 2016 have achieved a fantastic set of results which reflect their tremendous hard work, and, the dedication and commitment of our staff.

A Levels have a range of new accountability measures in 2016. Like GCSEs, the key measure of a school is the progress its students make – in this case, from Key Stage 4 through to the end of Key Stage 5.

In A Level subjects, Kingdown School achieved a progress score of +0.03 (against a national mean of 0.00) – again showing that students here made more progress than the ‘national average’ school.

The average grade attained was a C+. Of particular note were our ‘Applied General’ (BTEC and CamTEC) results, where the average grade attained was a Distinction+ (broadly equivalent to an A Level grade A) with a progress figure of +0.58 – well above the national average.

These students are an exceptional group of young people who have significantly contributed to the life of our school. We are very proud of their achievements and wish them every happiness and success in their future lives.
