Examination Results 2019

Cohort 2019 celebrated a very strong set of historic GCSE results – results that are transformational.  The overall Progress 8 score for the school, which compares students KS2 achievement with their GCSE outcomes shows that as a school we are just above the national average (score was +0.02), and significantly above the average for schools in the town (-0.07).

As well as progress, this year’s results were strong on the combined English and Maths measure with 60% of students achieving a 4 or above in both subjects.  At Grade 5+, a strong pass, 39% of students achieved at least a grade 5 in both English and Maths.  Department results across the school showed significant improvements.  Again, these results were a significant increase on last years.  As well as the overall results, we are particularly thrilled with many individual student achievements.

These results show a significant movement from last year, where this year’s students performed on average half a grade better than last year’s students when compared to students nationally. This change has been as a result of our strong leadership resulting in high expectations of all, improved curriculum, teaching and learning and constant championing each and every one of students.

“Transformational!”Paul James, CEO of The River Learning Trust

“We are absolutely delighted to see such a strong set of GCSEs today for our students.  These results reflect all their considerable efforts, pride and ambition over the past two years.  These achievements are well-deserved and will provide our students with firm foundations and open doors to their future ambitions.”

“I would also like to give a special mention to our whole staff team who worked tirelessly to champion and ensure that each and every student was able to achieve their very best.  These results would not have been possible without their support and expert guidance.  I would also like to thank all our parents for their continued support”Emma Leigh-Bennett, Headteacher of Kingsdown School
