y11 results13 150pxKing Ethel­bert School are cel­e­brat­ing record break­ing results this year which has seen GCSE grades soar and indi­vid­ual stu­dents mak­ing excep­tional progress at every level of abil­ity. 53% of the stu­dents achieved 5 A*-C grades includ­ing Eng­lish and Maths which is a 23% increase from last year. 60% achieved an A* — C in Eng­lish, 60% in Maths. As well as the superb head­line fig­ures which have smashed all the gov­ern­ment tar­gets by a long way, the school has also got the high­est ever per­cent­age of the top grades A and A* in all sub­jects. 66% of stu­dents achieved 5 A* — C grades (an increase of 12% from last year) and 91% of stu­dents gained at least 5 GCSE passes.

The results show clearly that stu­dents have made excep­tional progress dur­ing their time at King Ethel­bert at what­ever start­ing point they had in Year 7.

Kate Greig, Head­teacher, said “these are mag­nif­i­cent results and we are enor­mously proud of all our stu­dents. We have a fan­tas­tic staff who work so hard and do every­thing that needs to be done to ensure suc­cess for each indi­vid­ual and they deserve all the praise as their hard work has com­pletely paid off. They are the best results the school has ever had by a long way but what is so impor­tant is that these results show how much progress all stu­dents make dur­ing their time at our school. The stu­dents deserve every suc­cess – they were a won­der­ful Year 11 last year. I am delighted that so many of our stu­dents are stay­ing with us in the sixth form.”

The record break­ing GCSE exam­i­na­tion results comes on the back of the superb IBCC Sixth Form results the school achieved in July. King Ethel­bert School is a school that is going places and its aca­d­e­mic record is becom­ing hard to match.
