GCSE Suc­cess 2014

gcse results photo200

For the sec­ond year run­ning, King Ethel­bert School are cel­e­brat­ing extra­or­di­nary GCSE results. 62% of their Year 11 stu­dents gained five GCSEs at C grade or above includ­ing Maths and Eng­lish (74% of stu­dents gained a C or above in Eng­lish and 67% of stu­dents gained a C or above in maths). Last year, the school was the most improved in Kent and the best non selec­tive in Thanet on 54%. This year, the value of voca­tional sub­jects has changed and it has been much harder for stu­dents to gain five good passes. There­fore, King Ethelbert’s suc­cess is even more remark­able given this context.
Stu­dents who achieved par­tic­u­lar suc­cess were:
Georgina Ander­son – 2 x A*, 7 x A, 2 x B, 1 x C
Megan Cather­all – 4 x A*, 2 x A, 5 x B
Kieran Duck­worth – 4 x A, 5 x B, 4 x C
Chanelle Last – 1 x A*, 7 x A, 5 x B,
Emily Last – 3 x A*, 3 x A, 5 x B, 2 x C
Reece Mab­ber­ley – 2 x A, 6 x B, 1 x C
Charli Nichol­son – 2 x A*, 2 x A, 6 x B, 1 x C
Gre­gory Nocen­tini – 2 x A*, 1 x A, 4 x B, 5 x C
Han­nah Scott – 2 x A*, 3 x A, 4 x B, 3 x C
Ellyn Seely – 2 x A*, 2 x A, 8 x B
Reece Ward – 3 x A*, 4 x A, 6 x B
Kate Greig, Head­teacher said, “we are so proud of our stu­dents and what they achieved this sum­mer. We are not sur­prised by these superb results which have smashed gov­ern­ment tar­gets by a long way. Our year 11 stu­dents worked incred­i­bly hard and the staff did every­thing they could to ensure all stu­dents reached or exceeded their poten­tial. All our year 11 stu­dents have ter­rific futures ahead of them as they not only have these excep­tional exam­i­na­tion results, they are also incred­i­bly pleas­ant, mature, polite human begins – we are so proud of them all.”
These record break­ing GCSE exam­i­na­tion results come on the back of the superb IBCC Sixth Form results achieved in July.
King Ethel­bert is a school that is going places and its aca­d­e­mic record is becom­ing hard to match.
