Hitting the heights in majestic manner
PUPILS at King’s School Gloucester have been celebrating some of the school’s best GCSE results. It was particularly impressive 21 per cent of these grades were 9 or 8 (A*) and 38 per cent of grades were top passes at grades 9-7 – well above the national average of 20 per cent.
Headmaster David Morton said: “We are very proud of our hard-working fifth form pupils.
“King’s prides itself on being an inclusive school which welcomes pupils with a wide range of academic abilities.
“Behind the headlines are some inspiring personal stories of resilience and perseverance which results alone do not reflect.”
He continued: “This year’s GCSE pupils have balanced their academic work with participation in all the cocurricular opportunities available to them.
“Whether that be on the sports field, in performing arts, trekking across the Malverns on a Duke of Edinburgh expedition or exploring China on this summer’s academic enrichment trip.
“We look forward to welcoming a very strong cohort back to start their Alevel studies in September.”
These results are typical of a King’s education.
While all the pupils are achieving top marks in the core subjects, they are encouraged to widen their education and study a diverse range of subjects, such as Latin and classics, alongside the more traditional GCSES.
Where King’s School particularly
excels is identifying and nurturing individual talent to its full potential.
Examples of this include Tom Morris, who gained full marks in his art GCSE, GB Tap Attack captain Millie Davis and Bobby Cound, who represented England at hockey alongside his studies.
The King’s School is the leading independent day school in the area with more than 600 pupils, girls and boys, aged three to 18.
King’s offers academic excellence, outstanding pastoral care and a unique programme to identify and develop individual talents.
The inspiring Cathedral setting is unequalled, giving a special sense of identity.
Our family-friendly school is small enough for us to know each child and to value them as an individual, yet large enough to offer a very wide range of academic subjects and a spectacular array of co-curricular opportunities.
Families throughout Gloucestershire are sending their children to King’s for a great all-round education.
Our countywide bus service and range of scholarships and bursaries makes it very accessible for all.
The best way to find out more about King’s is to visit us and experience this unique environment for yourself.
King’s next open morning is on Saturday, October 5 from 9.30am12.30pm.
The Sixth Form open evening is on Thursday, October 17.
