THE anxious wait is finally over today (14) as students at King’s Ely find out their all-important A Level results.
Celebrations started at 10am this morning when it was revealed that the recent Year 13 leavers have achieved record-breaking results. A total of 43 per cent of all grades are A* to A, which is an improvement of 9 per cent compared to last year and 14 per cent compared to 2012. The overall A* to B grades are also up, from 62 per cent last year to 67 per cent.
Principal of King’s Ely, Sue Freestone, commented: “We are very proud of this year’s A Level students. In spite of dire warnings in the Press about the ‘raising of the bar’ and the impact that would have on results, King’s Ely students have bucked the trend by achieving the highest percentage of top grades on record.”
Individual achievers, who all received 100% A* and A grades, include Georgia Baynes, Andrew Bosworth-Daft, Alexander Clubb, Anna-Rose Harris, Benjamin Love, Matthew Lowery, Anna Pyatko, George Ryan, Robert Seddon-Greve, Georgia Schneider, Juk Tsing Wong, Emma White, Constance Wynn and Sanjiban Mandal, who was awarded three A* grades and one A. Students performed particularly well in the Humanities, Art and Textiles and Languages.
Alex McGrath, Head of King’s Ely Senior, added: “Our school community is celebrating the dedicated efforts of our students, and we would also like to acknowledge the fine teaching and exceptional advice and support of our teaching and Sixth Form staff who have played their part in today’s success.”
