12th August 2021 — Kingswood Students Celebrate Strong GCSE/IGCSE Results
Students at Kingswood School, Bath are celebrating very strong GCSE/IGCSE results this year. With 57% of all results awarded at grades 9 and 8, 77% at grades 9-7, students have achieved very highly across both GCSE and IGCSE examinations. Results have been excellent across the breadth of the curriculum with the Sciences, Humanities and Creative Arts all enjoying stellar results.
Amongst many excellent individual performances, the highest achievers with a full set of grade 9s were Grace A, Anouk, Sophie, Louis, Elsa, Grace H, Zara, Lily, and Polly. We are delighted that 67 individual students achieved at least five 9/8 grades.
Headmaster, Andrew Gordon-Brown, commented:
We are celebrating today outstanding results for our Year 11 cohort who have coped admirably with the uniquely challenging circumstances over the last two academic years. Our students can be very proud of the manner in which they responded to our robust internal assessment process, showing excellent knowledge and skills and reaping the reward of their hard work. As ever, this has been a wonderful team effort and I am very grateful for the professionalism and dedication of our teachers in their support for our students.
I take my hat off to the many students in this cohort who rose above the difficult backdrop, making the most of the opportunities to develop character outside the classroom. We look forward now to welcoming them back to start life in the Sixth Form, secure in the knowledge of a strong performance at GCSE, when they can continue to fulfil their talents as leaders and role models across all areas of school life.
