Life at KES
Exam Results 2021Posted on: 12/08/2021
At the end of what has been a significantly challenging year for all schools, we are delighted to report that many KES students have achieved their 'Personal Best' this summer.
We have congratulated and celebrated with both A Level and GCSE students who have perservered through exceptionally difficult circumstances to achieve grades they can be proud of - whatever grade that may be; it is about each individual student achieving the very best they can.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of assessment tasks measured against a national standard, approved and awarded by the exam boards. The fact that this year's processes were different from previous years should take nothing away from the recognition our students deserve for all their hard work.
A number of our Sixth Form students are now moving onto University; Molly is going to study a Sports Degree at Loughborough, Amy is going to Reading to study Maths, and Sydney is going to Queen Mary to study Mechanical Engineering.
Two of our Year 11 students have been successful in their applications for an Engineering Apprenticeship at a world leading organisation - IPECO - we are extremely proud of both Mitchell and Davy as apprenticeships at this company are very hard to come by.
Our Year 11 students had some fantastic results, including Teniola who achieved an absolutely outstanding nine 9s! Olivia and Sofia achieved an incredible six 9s and three 8s, and six 9s and two 8s, respectively, whilst Janak achieved four 9s and four 8s, and Charlie and Kit achieved four 9s and two 8s each. Keira also achieved three 9s and five 8s.
Our Headteacher, Mr Osborn, said: "We are immensely proud of the hard work and achievements of our students, particularly given the circumstances we have all lived through this past year. Our students and their families deserve great credit for the way they have overcome the many challenges they have faced and I look forward to seeing what they will go on to achieve in the future, particularly the many students who will be joining the KES Sixth Form in September".
