King Edward VI School is celebrating after being placed among the UK’s top ten of boys’ grammar schools, following a successful round of GCSE results.

The news followed the school’s announcement it had also secured the best A Level results in the county.

Three-quarters of GCSE papers were graded A* or A (or equivalent) with 37 students achieving 10 A* and A grades or better.

Among them were Ben Clarke, Joe Gray, Jack Hawkins, Artem Khovanov, Jamie McGinn, Oliver Richardson, Joshua Stone and Ed Turner who all gained 11 A* grades.

Headteacher Bennet Carr said: “The students and their teachers deserve great credit for maintaining such high levels of achievement in these, the most challenging

examinations for a generation.

“I am particularly pleased for this group of Year 11 who have not just worked hard to achieve these results, but have also dedicated themselves to a vast array extra-curricular, enrichment and community activities.

“They can all be rightly proud of their achievements.”
