GCSE Results 2015

KES Students 200King Ethel­bert School is cel­e­brat­ing another set of fan­tas­tic exam­i­na­tion results this sum­mer with 53% of stu­dents achiev­ing 5A* — C grades includ­ing Eng­lish and Maths. 74% of stu­dents achieved a A*-C in Eng­lish and 60% in Maths. As well as this head­line fig­ure which has again smashed gov­ern­ment tar­gets the school has also a very high per­cent­age of stu­dents get­ting the top grade of A and A* in all the subjects.

The results show clearly that the stu­dents have made excep­tional progress dur­ing their time at King Ethel­bert from the start­ing point they had in Year 7.

Kate Greig, Head­teacher, said “these are yet again won­der­ful results and make us the high­est achiev­ing non-​selective school in Thanet for the third year run­ning. We have a fan­tas­tic staff who work so hard and do every­thing that needs to be done to ensure suc­cess for each indi­vid­ual. The stu­dents are a com­plete credit to their school and to the local com­mu­nity and we should all be cel­e­brat­ing their con­sid­er­able achieve­ments. What is so impor­tant is that the stu­dents have got the grades they need in order to progress to the next part of their edu­ca­tion, be it our sixth form, other post-​16 courses or appren­tice­ships. They are a won­der­ful set of young peo­ple and we are all so proud of them. “

This fan­tas­tic set of GCSE exam­i­na­tion results come on the back of the superb IBCC Sixth Form results the school achieved in July. Vicky Willis, Deputy Head­teacher said “ we are thrilled that so many of our stu­dents have not only met, but exceeded our high expec­ta­tions and our Sixth Form will be grow­ing even big­ger and bet­ter con­tin­u­ing with our cur­rent 100% pass rate.”

Paul Lux­moore, Exec­u­tive Head­teacher, said “King Ethel­bert is a school that is going places and its aca­d­e­mic record is becom­ing hard to match.”
