GCSE Results

It was all smiles at KES this morning at GCSE results day.

After having terrible disruption to their education through the last 3 years this cohort of students have shown incredible determination and resilience to achieve grades that are of a level that exceed pre-pandemic levels.

Mr Haigh said, “To see 80% of our students achieve 5 standard GCSE passes or more would be cause for great celebration any year but, considering what these students have had to contend with, it is particularly inspiring and heart-warming this year. It shows not just the high academic standards King Ecgbert students are taught to but also how well developed their character is to be able to determinedly achieve to this standard and not be knocked back by the constant disruptions caused by the pandemic.”

Ms McCairns reported long queues of students signing up for the sixth form. She said “What pleases me most about these very high grades is that they allow so many students to access our great sixth form and then access the social mobility a university education offers- many of the children we’re signing up today will be the first in their families to do that and then go on to professional careers.”
