A Level Results

Year 13 students at The King’s Academy are celebrating their achievements following two years of dedication, resilience and hard work as they have completed their A level and vocational courses.

Over three-quarters of university applicants secured their firm choice of course and institution in a wide-range of subjects, including: medicine, law, architecture, sciences, creative writing, music and sound production, education, healthcare… the list goes on! Overall, 97% of applicants secured their firm or insurance choice, with 31% progressing to Russell Group universities. This success is testament to the efforts of our students, supported by their parents and the high-quality next steps guidance offered by our sixth form team at The King’s Academy.

We are equally delighted to see a number of our students progressing to apprenticeships in areas such as mechanical engineering, local government, instrumentation and business, as well as seeing students secure employment in the retail and hospitality sectors locally and further afield, including Kuwait!

Of particular note is the achievement of Iqra Issa who was awarded 3A* grades in biology, chemistry and mathematics and who secured her first choice application to study chemistry at Imperial College, London. Other notable achievements include:

  • Daisy Robson (A*AB): film practices (Newcastle)
  • Emily Hilton (A*AB): sports and exercise science (York St John)
  • Alice Thomson (A*AB): apprenticeship
  • Niloufar Afshari (A*BB): architecture (Nottingham)
  • Jack Moralee (A*BC): apprenticeship
  • Madeleine Baker (AAB), modern language and linguistics (Leeds)
  • Harvey Kaid (ABB; A* EPQ): medicine (Leicester)
  • Jessica Hilton (ABB): combined psychology and sports and exercise science (Newcastle)
  • Joshua Ladds (ABB): history and philosophy (York)
  • Harrison Scott (ABB): history and politics (York)

Almost half of all grades awarded were at B grade or better, and over 80% of grades were at C grade or better.

Mr Skerry (Assistant Principal, Sixth Form) said of our students: “It has been wonderful to congratulate so many of our students in person today on achieving the results that have enabled them to reach their chosen university, apprenticeship, or employment destination. Their dedication and perseverance, supported expertly by their teachers, tutors and parents, has culminated in an overall sense of ‘job well done’ by all.

Mr Reader (Acting Principal) commented: “We are immensely proud of our Year 13 students who have overcome significant challenges during their education, including sitting formal examinations for the first time this summer. Students have worked exceptionally hard and thoroughly deserve the grades that they have achieved, enabling them to progress to a range of university courses, further training or employment. We wish all of our students every success in their next steps and extend our sincere congratulations for all that they have achieved.
