A level and Professional and Technical Results 2019

Press release:

The Queen Katherine School staff and students are thrilled with another set of outstanding A-Level results.

Headteacher Jon Hayes said: “Once again, the hard work of our students and the inspirational teaching they receive from the Queen Katherine staff, has been rewarded with fantastic examination results.”

“As always, there are a number of queries over re-marks and grade boundaries and so, once the official DfE September checking exercise has been completed, we will issue our headline data but we are already celebrating a 100% pass rate at A level and at a time when top grades are declining nationally it is great to see QKS bucking that trend with our highest ever percentage of A/A* grades. For now, it is essential we focus on the real stars of today: the students.  There have been some exceptional individual performances and all our students should very proud of themselves and their achievements.   On behalf of all the staff, I wish every student success in their next chapter.”

Head of Sixth Form, Ruth Nelson, said: “I am absolutely delighted to see these excellent results for our diligent students. With 100% pass rate and a third of all results being the top A*-A grades, it is clear that our students have excelled themselves. The year group have worked scrupulously and shown an impressive attitude to their learning, whilst also leading strong initiatives and contributing to the wider school community.  Exceptional teaching and supportive parents are recognised and greatly appreciated in helping them to achieve superb results.

The record set of grades are an outstanding achievement for a cohort drawn from a broad range of ability. Some of the individual successes include Ben Fleetwood with 4 A* grades and an A in EPQ to be followed by a degree in Maths at Warwick, and Lily Neal who made the most progress over the two years and is going to study English Literature at York University having attained an A* and two A grades.  David Seaton is going to Leicester University to study Medicine with an A*, two A grades, and an A in EPQ.

In addition to our regular A levels, this year we have also seen outstanding performances from our Year 13 students who sat Technical and Professional qualifications, with 38 % achieving Distinction * and 38 % achieving Distinction. The Extended Project Qualification results were also with impressive with 57% A*-A.

I wish each student the success they deserve as they make the next step in their lives., with almost all students now secure with their chosen place at University, within an apprenticeship scheme, or in employment in a great range of spheres.“
