JUMPING FOR JOY! – A Level Success at Kent College

15 Aug 2019

Kent College Canterbury A-Level Examination results for Summer 2019

Kent College students and staff are celebrating another successful year for A level results, with over 70% passed at grades A*-B, and almost half of all grades at A* – A. 12 students achieved the coveted 3 or more A-A* grades

Particular congratulations for high levels of academic achievement go to the following top performers at A level:

Harry Blake, Benjamine Artaud, Shiran Chen, Alistair Figgis, Isabelle Hobday, Henry Jia, Serene Lau, Daisy Lee-Browne, Summer Leung, Yuhan Liu, Kris-Rajah Thirunamachandran, Olaf Ungier, Gladys Wong, Elaine Zhao, Eddie Tugwell.

These results follow an excellent IB performance with this year’s cohort achieving an average score of 37, which matched the best the school has achieved and should keep Kent College in the Top 10 schools in the UK for IB.

The results will enable access to top universities in the UK and further afield. Louis Kind has a place to read Global Governance at the prestigious Esada, Barcelona with support from UNICEF. Places have also been awarded at Melbourne, Maastricht, Humbolt Berlin, Lawrence, Wisconsin, and the Ecole hotelier de Lausanne.

The success of Kent College students means that they will access courses across a wide range of subjects, including: Medicine (Bristol and UAE), Music (York, Royal Hollaway), Art (Central St Martins), Economics (Durham and Warwick), Natural Sciences (UCL and Loughborough), and Engineering (Structural Civil, Electrical and Acoustic).

Along with top scores in the IB announced in July these A level results secure UCAS points (the basis for university offers) with an average of over 150 per student: the equivalent of A* A A.

Executive Head, Dr. David Lamper said,

“I am delighted with the very high levels of academic achievement shown by the students who took examinations this summer. They worked extremely hard whilst at the same time adding an immense amount to the extracurricular, musical, dramatic and sporting life of our community. They have been excellent ambassadors of Kent College and they deserve every success. I am also delighted for my colleagues who have worked so hard in supporting and nurturing the development of all our students. Many congratulations to them all.”
