Headmaster’s Autumn Message
At Commemoration back in July, we saluted the excellence achieved by the 168 6a leavers across an impressively broad canvas of academic, musical, sporting and artistic endeavour. Life is always full, exciting and creative at King’s, but everyone within the community was in accord that this particular year group was characterised by wholehearted participation and disciplined application of their natural talent to make our lives even more enjoyable and stimulating.
That they have also excelled on the academic front, landing very good ‘A’ Level Results at the very high levels achieved in recent years, despite government policy on grade inflation and re-sits, is greatly to their credit, as well as reflecting the strength of the teaching faculties.
The defining feature of the leavers’ year group was their friendliness and supportive attitude towards others, both within the King’s community and beyond its immediate walls, an approach best illustrated by the Charity Fashion Show in March which supported the Strode Park Foundation.
Next year’s 6as are sure to rise to the challenge of taking on this impressive flame, especially having achieved such impressive AS results just now - and then there is the strong year group coming in to the Sixth Form!
