Kingsthorpe College Post 16 students were celebrating success this morning as they achieved notable results for academic and vocational courses, building upon the excellent results of previous years. The College is particularly pleased with the vast majority of students (75%) securing their first choice university places - a just reward for two years of hard work. This year’s results confirm Kingsthorpe as an excellent provider for KS5 qualifications with several subjects, including English Language, Psychology and Sociology, performing on average half a grade higher than the national expectations for the cohort. The College is particularly pleased to maintain an average grade across entries of a C at A Level and a Distinction in Applied Subjects.
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. Particular mention should go to Kyle Robinson for achieving two A*s and three As (Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Further Maths, Extended Project). We also celebrate a female student going to Bristol to take up a course in engineering - a subject that is overly represented by males across the country. Additionally, there are a number of notable performances, with many students having succeeded in getting places at prestigious Russell Group universities.
- Ciara Duggan – A B C (English Language, Fine Art, Dance)
- Joe Jenkins – B B C (Maths, History and Physics)
- Sam Hamid Asamoah - Distinction Merit (Double CDM) and A* (Art)
- Georgia Robbins – A B Merit (English Language, Psychology, IT)
- Harriet Finlay – B B Distinction Star (Psychology, Sociology, Health and Social Care)
- Muhammed Uddin - Distinction Star A* B B (Computing, Extended Project, Physics, Maths)
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. 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.”
