King’s High Girls Celebrate Excellence at A Level!
King’s High girls and their parents joined staff to celebrate superb individual achievements when A Level results were announced, which are the strongest in seven years.
The headline figures are as follows:
• 64% of all results were graded A to A*

• 42% of girls received at least one A*
• 11% of girls received at least three A*s
• 89% of girls received at least one A
• 38% of girls received all A*-A grades
Outstanding individual results include: One girl with four A*s, three girls with three A*s and an A, three girls with 3A*s and four girls with two A*s and an A.
Year on year, our girls’ results ensure that they can continue their education at leading universities and institutions both in the UK and further afield.
As is typical for our Upper Sixth leavers, around half the girls will be studying humanities, languages, and arts, which includes music conservatoire. Half the girls will be studying STEM subjects, including one girl studying medicine at Cambridge University, and one studying Chemistry at Oxford University, with a choral scholarship as well.
Head Master, Richard Nicholson, commented, “I’d like to congratulate all of our girls on their superb results. These reflect their hard work and dedication, the expertise of our staff, and the support of their parents. The girls not only achieve impressive academic results, but flourish in the pursuit of their personal goals over a wide range of disciplines, both curricular and extracurricular. We wish all our Upper Sixth leavers the very best for the future; we are extremely proud of them.”
