EXCELLENT A LEVEL RESULTS
King Edward VII Science and Sport College is celebrating after another set of successful A level results.
The cohort of 103 students achieved a fantastic overall pass rate of 97%, with 65% of students gaining A*- C, 43% A*- B and 15% A*- A. This achievement is all the more impressive given the exceptional personal difficulties several of our students have experienced whilst studying for their A levels.
Amongst many outstanding performers at the college is Oliver Bennett who passed an amazing five A levels at grades A* and A; he has accepted a place at Durham University to read maths and physics. We are also delighted that Harriet Wilton has just had her place confirmed at Cambridge University after securing a brilliant A* and 2 As. Other top students include Alex Reid (A*, A, B, C), and Alex Greenfield and Nathan Turner (both achieved 3 A grades). Within this exceptional Year 13 cohort, we also have two prospective medics, Eden Page and Chloe Knight, who will be reading medicine at Leeds and Exeter next year. The vast majority of students are looking forward to taking up their places at their first choice universities next year.
The Principal Jenny Byrne said: "We are delighted with the achievements of our students. Once again, they have demonstrated their commitment to being the best they can be. Despite the ever increased challenge and rigour of the new reformed A levels, they have shown strong levels of resilience and determination to succeed and their efforts have been rewarded.
I am always as ever grateful to the staff who have been relentless in their efforts to support the students. Never complacent, will strive to be better than yesterday to ensure the best outcomes for the young people of Coalville and the surrounding villages."
