A-level delight at KGGS: 'Our students’ results are richly deserved'
Kesteven Grantham Girls School (KGGS) are celebrating another excellent year for results at A-level with just over 70 per cent of all grades being awarded at A*/B. Year 13 students have achieved a 99.3 per cent pass rate overall at A-level, with a record 38 per cent of all subject passes being awarded at the top two grades.
Headteacher Mr David Scott was delighted for the students.
He said: “It has again been an immensely busy year for students and staff who have worked tremendously hard. There has a great deal of attention given to the new, more challenging A-Levels, some of which have been assessed for the first time this year.
"Given that the intention was to raise the national standards, particularly at the higher grades, I am particularly pleased to report that over 14 per cent of all grades achieved by KGGS students were at A* - which is our best ever.
"Our students’ results are richly deserved and I am particularly pleased that at this early stage it appears that the vast majority of our Y13 students have achieved the grades they needed to gain access to courses in Higher Education. This is a time to celebrate the efforts and achievements of all of our students.”
There were a number of outstanding individual performances at KGGS with an impressive 35 students achieving at least three A*/A grades, four of whom achieved four A*/A grades.
