A Level and GCSE Results

The fantastic results produced at King’s Rochester represent a huge amount of hard work and dedication by both the pupils and their teachers.  King’s thrives on the rapport between staff and pupils both in and out of the classroom and we pride ourselves on knowing the pupils and their families very well. 

Our results come alongside the benefits of the much wider education on offer at King’s.  Our pupils excel in sport, drama and music among many other enterprises and it is the personal qualities they develop alongside their academic performance which makes them such engaging young men and women with bright futures ahead.  

GCSE Results

The highest ever GCSE results for King’s were achieved in 2017 with 24% of all grades at A* and 48% at A* or A.

Just under half of all pupils attained at least five A* or A grade GCSEs, 30% achieved straight A* to B grades and 69% of all grades were at A* to B level.

Such successful grades were achieved across all subjects with notable performances coming from English, German and Design & Technology with more than 90% A* to B grades.  Biology, Chemistry and Physics all achieved over 80% A* to B grades among the two thirds of pupils who sat the more rigorous Triple Science course.  Music and Art have always been strong subjects at King’s Rochester, and this year Art celebrated 100% A*/A grade success with Music gaining 100% A* to B.

A Level Results

King’s Rochester has a strong reputation for maximising the potential of pupils with a broad range of strengths and 2017 was no exception as students achieved the second highest ever set of A level results. This was especially pleasing in the first year of new, more rigorous A Level courses. 

13% of all grades were at A* and 34% were at A*/A –the highest results from the last five years and far higher than the national A*/A average of 26.3%.  A record 24% of the year achieved two or more A*/A grades and the top 40% of the year (comparable to a grammar school cohort), achieved a whopping A*/A grade tally of 68%!  The overall average UCAS points were equivalent to three B grades per student and well over half of all grades achieved were A* to B.

With such impressive results as these, it is no surprise that the destinations for the nine students with straight A*/A grades are the excellent universities of Birmingham, Loughborough, Manchester, Nottingham and Southampton.

Outstanding results came from the Art Department with 86% A* grades and 100% A*/A grades.  In Design and Technology 100% of grades were at A* to B and in English 87% of grades were at A* to B.
