Kingsthorpe College Post 16 students were celebrating success this morning as they achieved notable improvements on previous years, and have results which continue a trajectory of improvement for the College. The College is particularly pleased to see Academic and A Level subjects improve by almost 1 grade per entry. The performance of students studying vocational qualifications was also an area for celebration as students’ outcomes remained significantly positive compared to national averages. The College is delighted with this as it continues the good progress made last year and confirms Kingsthorpe as an excellent provider for KS5 qualifications.
Many students celebrated excellent individual performances as our diverse and personalised curriculum continues to enable all students to achieve qualifications which will allow them to continue on with their chosen pathways after they leave us. The College has also seen a huge increase in the number of students achieving the top grades, with 50.2% of all entries being A*-B. Particular mention should go to Ellie Morgan, who achieved A*AAA* (English Literature, Drama, History, Extended Project) securing a place to study Egyptology at Oxford University and Joe Morris who achieved A*A*A*A* (Chemistry, Maths, Physics, Extended Project) and moves on to study Chemistry at Durham. There were many other students who also performed particularly well, including:
- Chloe Allen A*A*A*B (Psychology, Sociology, Extended Project, German)
- Emily Taylor A*A*A*C (Psychology, Sociology, Extended Project, Biology)
- Bradley Small A*ADist* (Sociology, Psychology, Sport)
- Olivia Hodgkins AADist* (History, Sociology, Health and Social Care)
- Ellen Clarke AAB (Drama, Sociology, English Literature)
- Emma Clarke A*AC (Photography, Fine Art, Psychology)
- Robert Lorkins ABDist* (Physics, Maths, IT)
- Lewis Clark ABB (Economics, Maths, Physics)
- Rachel Yates ABB (English Literature, Geography, Sociology)
In line with our wide ranging curriculum, there were also some particularly strong performances from students studying vocational qualifications, where 66% of all entries were equivalent to A*-A. Of particular note was Florentina Mocanu who achieved a Double Distinction in Creative Digital Media and a Double Distinction* in Health and Social Care.
Jennie Giovanelli, Headteacher of Kingsthorpe College, said: "We are delighted for our students’ success this summer which demonstrates that Kingsthorpe College continues to make sustained improvements across all headline measures. We are particularly pleased that the results reflect our commitment to providing a broad and balanced curriculum. The results are testament to the determination and commitment of all involved with the College, and we wish all our students the very best for the future.”
