Hard work and high achievement for King’s GCSE pupils

Pupils at the King’s School in Gloucester have today received an outstanding set of GCSE results with a fifth of all results at Grade 9 – four times the national average – and 51% at Grade 9, 8 or 7; this is despite the return to 2019 grading levels and three years of disruption with the pandemic.  This year’s results are one of School’s best ever – proving that hard work and determination really does pay off.

These results were achieved in a wide range of subjects including Further Maths, Computer Science, Design Technology, Latin and Classical Greek, which shows the academic diversity and choice available at King’s.

It is important to recognise that pupils at all levels of achievement should be proud of their efforts with each grade being hard earned. We wish to congratulate each and every one of our pupils on their superb achievements; they should rightly be proud of themselves.

King’s Gloucester has a reputation for producing strong all-rounders who work hard outside, as well as inside, the classroom. Amongst the students celebrating great results at the school are several former boy and girl Cathedral Choristers, Welsh Exiles and Gloucester Rugby Academy players, a Cheltenham Town Football scholar, several talented equestrian riders, a national water polo player, Severn Stars netball Nova Academy players, and a county golfer.

The Headmaster, Mr David Morton, commented, “We are all incredibly proud of our pupils’ GCSE results. Despite the national headlines suggesting that exam results would be lower this year, in fact our pupils and staff have worked hard and the pupils have attained magnificent results which match our best ever at King’s. We look forward to these bright, talented all-rounders moving through to join our flourishing Sixth Form.”
