Year 11 GCSEs/IGCSEs results
The Fifth Form rounded off a strong performance in academic, musical, and sporty terms during their time in the Junior and Middle Schools with a very strong set of I/GCSE results. The national picture of a decline in grades achieved does not appear to have affected this talented year group as they confidently enter the King’s Sixth Form. The Headmaster, Peter Roberts, congratulated the pupils on their intelligent approach to study and their resilience in what is always a testing and gruelling process – particularly for those taking 11+ subjects. He also commented that the key element behind an analysis of the individual paper grades is the excellent value added colleagues at King’s have brought by their expert tuition and dedicated teaching.
