School celebrates top return on GCSE results

It was smiles all round at Kings Priory School today as the school celebrated its best ever GCSE results.

The School recorded an impressive 91% of pupils with at least 5 A*s to C including Maths and English*, which is its most successful GCSE return to date.

Amongst other top headlines 96% of Kings Priory School pupils received an A*-C in both Mathematics and English.

This overall GCSE result is significantly higher than both regional and national averages, with the latter falling to its lowest since 2008 the BBC have reported today.

Amongst other successes were Mimli Moudgalya who attained 10 A*s and 2 As, Eleanor Fay with an impressive 8 A*s and 4 As, Hana Hassan with 7 A*s and 5 As and Liam Steel, who received 7 A*s and 4 As.

The Principal, Mr Philip Sanderson, commented on the tremendous achievement of all of the School’s Year 11 pupils.

He said: “I am delighted to see so many young people having their hard work over the last few years recognised by their achievements today.”

“We are very pleased with the GCSE results and more importantly the success of all of our pupils.”

“Many congratulations must go to them and a huge thank you for the continued hard work and support of our dedicated staff who can celebrate these results too.”

The majority of pupils are now preparing for their return to the School in September, in the new bespoke Sixth Form Centre which opened earlier this year.

There are still a small number of places available to start the Sixth Form at Kings Priory School in September. Any late enquiries should be directed as soon as possible to 0191 258 5995 or email
