The dedication of students and staff at Kingsmeadow has created dramatic improvements in this year’s GCSE results. Achievements can be seen at both the individual and whole school level. 5% of students achieved grades A or A* in eight or more subjects, a phenomenal 64% of students achieved either an A or A* in English Literature and 48% achieved this feat in English Language. Overall, the school’s success rate at 5 A*-C including English and Maths has risen by 15%.
Congratulations to our Year 13 students who achieved an outstanding pass rate of 98% in this year’s A level examination results. All students who were awaiting confirmation of university places have been successful and we wish them the best of luck with the next step of their educational journey. We are always keen to hear how our ex-students are doing so please stay in touch.
Many of our Year 12 students made terrific progress too, with 49% achieving grades A*-B, and an overall pass rate of 93%. Well done on making an excellent start to your KS5 studies.
Students progressing on to Year 13 courses should re-enrol on the afternoon of Monday 5th September in the Sixth Form Centre. At this time, students will be able to discuss the range of options open to them going forward.
Year 11 students enrolling for sixth form should come to the Sixth Form Centre on Tuesday 6th September.
School will close to all students at 12:15pm on Wednesday 20th July for the summer break. There will be a lunch service available if required. The school’s Learning Zone will be open until 2.45pm for students wishing to stay to catch up with work.
We have been liaising with the bus company regarding the Scholar buses and can confirm the following:
- The 849 to High Spen and the 847 to Lobley Hill will be at school for pick up at 12.15pm.
- There will be NO 848 to Bensham or 846 to the Teams on this day; therefore students will be required to make their way home using alternative methods.
The new school term starts on Wednesday 7th September 2016 for students in Years 8 – 11. Students joining Year 7 will start the day before (Tuesday 6th September 2016) to get used to the procedures in their new school. All students are expected to be in school promptly by 8.30 am each day.
Students wishing to join our Sixth Form will be required to complete their enrolment during the week commencing Tuesday 6th September 2016 and therefore they should make themselves available.
We would like to thank you for your ongoing support of our school and we wish your son/daughter a restful and safe summer break.
