A-Level Results - August 2017
KGGS reports another excellent year for results at A-level with 69% of all grades being awarded at A*/B. Year 13 students have achieved a 99.8% pass rate overall at A-level, with 36% of all subject passes being awarded at the top 2 grades.
Headteacher Mr Scott was delighted for the students. He commented, "It has again been an immensely busy year for students and staff who have worked tremendously hard. There has been much attention given to the new, more challenging A-Levels, assessed for the first time this year. Given that the intention nationally was to raise the standards particularly at the higher grades, I am particularly pleased to report that 14% of all grades achieved by KGGS students were at A* -which is our highest ever. Our students’ results are richly deserved and I am particularly pleased that at this early stage it appears that the vast majority of our Y13 students have achieved the grades they needed to gain access to their desired courses in Higher Education. This is a time to celebrate the efforts and achievements of all of our students.”
There were a number of outstanding individual performances at KGGS with an impressive 33 students achieving at least 3 A*/A grades, 3 of whom achieved 5 A*/A grades.

GCSE Results - August 2017
KGGS reported another very good year for results at GCSE with 53% of all subject passes being awarded the top grades, which this year means A*/A or 7/8/9 in Maths & English. This is the statistic that the national press will use to compare the success levels of selective schools.
Over 99% of all students achieved at least 5 A*/C passes and 58% achieved at least 5 A*/A or equivalent passes this year.
Headteacher Mr Scott was delighted for the Y11 students at KGGS. He commented, "Our staff and students have worked extremely hard throughout the year and parents have been very supportive. Students’ results are richly deserved and I am particularly pleased that they have coped well with the additional pressures caused by some uncertainty in the national press over the new GCSEs in English & Maths. They are a resilient group and they have achieved their academic success whilst still contributing to their wider school community."
There were a large number of outstanding individual performances at KGGS with an impressive 42 students achieving at least 10 A*/A grades, 13 of whom achieved an amazing 12A*/A.
A special mention should go to Aiswarya Lakshmi, Sally Enstone, Francesca Filby and Ellen Hill who each achieved three grade nines in the new GCSEs in Maths, English and English Literature.
