What the new GCSEs mean (Aug 2017)


Congratulations to the GCSE Class of 2017!

Many congratulations to Kingsdown students who have achieved an extremely pleasing set of GCSE outcomes, successfully weathering the storm of qualification reforms in English and maths.

There were successes across the board with many standout performances including Rebecca Pinnock who achieved 7 A*, 1 A and a grade 9 in English Language and maths alongside other students including Ruby Nicol, Bradley Hawkins, Codie Church and Matthew Tilling who secured high grades across all subjects studied.

Congratulations to all our class of 2017 whose hard work and efforts have been rewarded.  There was no secret formula for success; just teachers who constantly strove to provide the best possible teaching and pastoral care, families who provided wonderful support, and, most importantly, amazing students who demonstrated real grit and determination in the lead up to their exams.
