The King’s School, Ottery St Mary, is celebrating ‘outstanding’ A-level results for 2019, continuing a long tradition of academic success in its sixth form.
Receiving outstanding results of a clean sweep of A and A-star grades across all their A-levels were seven students.
Some nine students achieved A-stars in at least one full A-level course and 22 students achieved an A-star in the Extended Project Qualification.
The school said it was ‘delighted’ that 79 per cent of all grades were A-star to C and 31 per cent of grades were at the highest level of A-star and A.
The King’s School credited the ‘amazing results’ to the hard work shown by the students, and to the quality of the teaching and support they received during their time at the school.
Headteacher Rob Gammon said the outcomes were ‘even more impressive’ given how many of the subjects formed part of the new reformed A-level offer.
He said he was ‘delighted’ that so many of The King’s School students had been successful.
He said the results would allow them to move on to world leading universities, employment or further training.
Mr Gammon said the school recognized A-levels were ‘vital’ in helping students move onto the next phase of their lives.
He said The King’s School was ‘equally as delighted’ to have provided an education which has produced well-rounded young people, giving them the confidence and resilience necessary to find future success.
Mr Gammon said The King’s School believed a first-class education could not be measured on a set of exam results.
He said: I am delighted to celebrate a strong set of A-level results with students and their families.
“These grades are the culmination of seven years of hard work and will allow our students to move on to world leading universities or on to employment and further training.
“On a day when academic results are celebrated it is also important to say that grades are only one indicator of a student’s potential.
“The King’s School continues to focus on personal as well as academic outcomes and I am very proud of the contribution that this year group has made to the school.
