Another fantastic year for students at KESH Sixth Form; the AS and A-Level grades secured are the best ever!

Our students have once again been very successful in their A-Level studies and have secured the best grades ever, 56% of A-Level results were a grade B or better, with nearly 90% of A-Level students securing a grade C or better! As a result, the vast majority of our students are able to continue with their studies in their first choice of University and this includes some very prestigious universities and courses:

  • Medicine at the University of Birmingham and Aston University (three students in total)
  • Mathematics at the University of Birmingham
  • Economics at the University of Birmingham
  • Civil Engineering at the University of Birmingham
  • Mathematics with Economics at the University of Birmingham
  • Biological Sciences at the University of Warwick

Students in Year 12 performed really well with 54% of AS results being at grade B or better and 78% being at grade C or better!

We are proud of what our students have achieved and we wish them the very best for their future.
