KING’S Ely is celebrating some of the highest set of A Level results on record with almost half of all grades achieved being A* and As.

47 per cent of all A Level grades achieved this year were A* or A, 75 per cent were graded A* to B, 89 per cent were graded A* to C and 99 per cent of all students achieved A* to E. The number of students who achieved A* grades also increased to 18 per cent this year.

By most measures, the results are the highest ever achieved by King’s Ely students, with 22 per cent of pupils achieving all A* or A grades in their subjects and 51 per cent achieving all A* to B grades in their subjects.

Principal of King’s Ely, Sue Freestone, is understandably delighted with this year’s results. She said: “These results are fantastic! This resourceful and determined group of hard-working young adults, and the staff and parents who have supported them throughout their educational journey have done a first-rate job. We are very proud of them.”

Students who achieved all A* and A grades were Martha Bent (A*, A*, A), William Black (A, A, A, A AS Further Maths), Sebastian Carberry (A*, A, A), Zoe Danes (A*, A, A), James Graver (A, A, A, A AS Further Maths), Elizabeth Hall (A*, A*, A, A), Sonia Kasprzak (A*, A, A), Eric Lin (A*, A*, A, A), Robinson Lyu (A*, A*, A, A), Emily Moore (A, A, A), Jelena Rois (A*, A*, A*), Olivia Rosenberg (A*, A, A, A), Carlotta Rosenthal (A*, A*, A, A, A), Vicky Shang (A*, A, A), and Kayla Wang (A*, A*, A*, A).

All grades achieved in Textiles and Fine Art this year were A* or A, and all except one of this year’s A Level Photography students achieved A* or A grades.

William, Sebastian, Sonia and Carlotta also took the Extended Project Qualification, achieving A* and A grades here as well. Carlotta was only 16 at the time of taking her exams which makes her achievements even more impressive.

Vice Principal Academic of King’s Ely, Jane Thomas, said: “This year group faced the challenges of new linear, reformed A Levels in all of their subjects. Inevitably, new examination specifications bring an element of uncertainty for both teachers and students therefore we are particularly delighted with these results.”

Open Events are being held at King’s Ely in September and October, with the Sixth Form Open Event taking place on Saturday, October 6th. To book your place or for more information, please visit:
