A-mazing result for stellar King’s School students
KING’S School GCSE students were seeing stars with another stellar display.
Of the 145 students in Year 11, 74 students achieved the top A* grade in one or more subjects.
Forty nine students achieved nine As and better, and nine students achieved nine A*s and better – with a quarter of the year group gaining at least five A*s.
Altogether, 24 per cent of all grades were at A*; 57pc of all grades were at A*/A and 83pc of grades were A*-B.
Among some of the top individual performances were two students who each achieved an incredible 10 A*s.
Sam Bryning, 15, from Clumber Road, Poynton, who is also a school team cricketer and rugby player, hopes his clean sweep of 10A*s will ultimately lead to a career in the City.
North of England hockey star Eleanor Toms, 16, from Holly Road, Poynton also aced all 10 GCSE with A*s.
Headmaster Dr Simon Hyde says: “It is wonderful to see so many delighted students, whose hard work and determination has reaped such fabulous rewards.
“These incredibly strong results will see the overwhelming majority of pupils progress to our Sixth Form to pursue their academic dreams.”
