KES scoops best A level results in county

Laura Kearns 18th Aug, 2017

THE best A level results in the county went to King Edward VI School.

An impressive 82 per cent of papers were graded A* to B, with 45 students scooping three A grades or better.

Nine students obtained the grades for their places at Oxbridge colleges.

Headteacher Bennet Carr said “Despite the well-publicised difficulties with rushed through curriculum reforms, I support the aim to make A levels more rigorous and to ensure that they remain the gold standard.

“There is no doubt that this has resulted in courses which are more difficult and I am therefore delighted that our students have risen to this challenge quite superbly. They have done so with the outstanding support of their teachers and families and I send them my warmest congratulations, and wish all Old Edwardians the very best for the future.”
