King’s School has achieved another outstanding year with 100 per cent of students getting five or more GCSEs including English and

mathematics.

Headmaster Frank Hedley said: “I am extremely proud of the boys, particularly as the national crackdown on grade inflation begins to have an impact.

“Last year’s results were a tough act to follow, yet this year’s results are the best on record, most notably at grades A*/A. At King’s we remain committed to a fully rounded education. The boys not only achieve well in external examinations, but are also articulate, well-adjusted young men with wide interests beyond their timetabled lessons combined with a commitment to making a positive contribution to society.”

Mr Hedley praised top achiever John Bowskill, who achieved an incredible 12 A*s and one A grade.

Another pupil to do well was James Kearney. He said: “I was so nervous getting my results today but I am so pleased with my 10 A*s and three As. I will be doing a lot of celebrating with my family and friends. I don’t know what I want to do for a career but I would really like to help people in some way.’’

William Cherry was also very happy with his nine A*s and four As. He said: “I am so happy. I worked very hard in all of my subjects. I love PE and cycling is a big passion of mine.”
