Despite the challenges of the last few years, with students enduring massive disruption to their learning, students and staff have remained positive throughout and the outcomes of the first series of external exams at both Level 2 and 3 have been very positive for Kingsmeadow students.
At KS5 there were notable successes in English and Sociology. All students that applied for higher education have been accepted on to their chosen courses, with only three not achieving their first choice.
At KS4 English, Maths and History achieved particularly pleasing results, showing real improvement on 2019 outcomes. The most notable success story at KS4 is Spanish. This year, under new leadership and a largely new team, the Spanish Department have achieved an amazing set of results, with over 90% of the cohort entered and two thirds of entries achieving a 4 or better. That includes almost a fifth of students entered achieving a grade 6 or better, ensuring that the school’s Ebacc outcome is the best in it’s history.
We are incredibly proud of what all our students and staff have achieved. They have shown real determination and resilience. Staff have worked hard to minimise the impact of the pandemic over the last three years and have ensured students have strong foundations to take those next steps with confidence.
I would like to thank both our outgoing Year 11 and Year 13 for all that they have contributed to Kingsmeadow School in their time with us. I hope both will look back on their time with staff and peers fondly. I know they will go on and succeed, and I look forward to hearing of their future successes in the years to come.
