Year 13 A Level results 2019
I warmly congratulate last year’s Leavers on their very good ‘A’ results which we received this morning.
They were a large, very united and good year group which has also landed some excellent academic results today.
Warm-hearted and talented contributors to all aspects of School life, it was a real pleasure looking after them and it is good to see them doing so well at the end of their King’s career.
At the top-end, of course, there are amazingly impressive outcomes with pupils being awarded 3, 4, or in one case, 6A*s! But, as is always the case at a fine all-round School, it is the performance right across the year group that counts and it is here that many who have achieved their university offers, who are the real success stories.
Over 60 pupils in this year group were awarded the equivalent of 3As and the overall A* – B equivalent percentage is over 77% with 20% of the grades at A* level. Bravo!

Year 11 GCSEs/IGCSEs results 2019
The Year 11s from The King’s School, Canterbury have landed a good set of I/GCSEs this morning.
They were a large and vibrant group of pupils (172) who contributed in a big way to the co-curricular programme, and have huge potential to continue successfully in the Sixth Form where they will be joined by over 50 new students elected through a highly selective entrance process.
44.2% of the Year Group’s grades were A* (or grade 9 or 8) and 69.4% were at A*-A Level. One pupil achieved 13A*s and no fewer than 26 at least 9A*s.
This was a consistent pattern across the year with 83 pupils, about half the year, achieving 5 or more A* grades or equivalent.
