We congratulate KEGS Year 11 students on an extremely strong set of GCSE results. From the GCSEs they sat in Summer 2022, over half of the results were the very top grade 9 and over 93% were graded at 7,8 or 9 (this figure rises to nearly 94% if early entries from the last two Summers are also included). These figures are comfortably up on pre-pandemic results.
As in all schools across the county and the country, students in this age group have faced considerable challenges over the last few years and we celebrate their hard work and the results that they have achieved. In a year of transition between pre-Covid and Pandemic grade boundaries, some caution is needed when interpreting results, but nevertheless we are delighted with the extremely strong level of attainment of pupils.
From a cohort of 150 students at KEGS, 15 achieved a clean sweep of grade 9 in all their GCSEs this Summer, but we congratulate all students and recognise the dedication that has gone into every result and wish all students well as they move on to the next stage in their education.
We also congratulate students who took GCSEs early this Summer. Students in Year 9 took either French or German GCSE, with an amazing 69% of results being given the very top grade 9. Students in Year 10 will typically have taken one or two public exams, with an even higher 74% of results in the full GCSEs taken being given a grade 9 and excellent results in the RE short course exam.
