Overall, 77% of KGV students achieved high grades and the College’s overall A Level pass rate is an impressive 99%, with 30 subject areas achieving 100% high grades.

The college also received a 100% pass rate for BTEC Advanced Level Extended Diplomas with 90% of these at Distinction grade or above.

Students were congratulated during a celebratory Results Day BBQ, which both friends and family were invited to attend. 

Acting Principal, Anne-Marie Francis, said, "We are tremendously proud of all our students as they progress to University and to see so many gaining places at top flight destinations is testament to the hard work and commitment of both students and staff."

Anne-Marie added, "It has been a fabulous and very proud day here at KGV, the sun shone for our BBQ and so many students came along to celebrate their high grade success.  I wish all our leavers every future success and also remind them we are always here for them and encourage them to keep in touch."
