A-Level Success at Kent College

Kent College students and staff are celebrating another successful year for A-level results, with over 67% passed at grades A*-B, and almost half of all grades at A*-A.

Particular congratulations for high levels of academic achievement go to the following top performers at A-level:
 
Samuel Cornelius Merrell, Jamie Dawe, James Gray, Hannah Griggs, Betty Guo, Leon Ho, Christopher Leung, Joshua Muijaya, Euan Musgrove, Harriet Newman, Bethan Okroj-Williams, Nicola Raimondo, Oliver Sigurdsson, Gerald Saliboko, Fang Tio, Alex Tugwell, James Zhang, Alexis Zhou and Jonas Zahn.
 
These results follow an excellent IB performance with this year’s cohort achieving an average score of 37, which matched the best the school has achieved and should keep Kent College in the Top 10 schools in the UK for IB.
 
The results will enable access to top universities in the UK and further afield. Anya Sochacka will study Human Sciences at Oxford University. Hannah Griggs secured a prestigious sports scholarship the University of North Carolina. Isiah Horner has been offered a sports scholarship at the University of Kent. Charlotte Letley has been awarded a ‘Bright Sparks Scholarship’ to study Medicine at UEA. Elena Bandel will study International Management at the University of Koblenz. Joseph Hearnden will study Land Management at the Royal Agricultural University.
 
The success of Kent College students means that they will access courses across a wide range of subjects, including specialist music, drama and art courses, architecture, law, economics, sports science and physiotherapy, mathematics, business, psychology, politics, English literature, product design, pharmacy, environmental science, chemistry, biology and media.
 
Along with top scores in the IB announced in July these A-level results secure UCAS points in the new tariff (the basis for university offers) with an average of over 150 per student ­– the equivalent of A* A A.
 
Executive Head Master, Dr. David Lamper said: “I am delighted with the very high levels of academic achievement shown by the students who took examinations this summer. They worked extremely hard whilst at the same time adding an immense amount to the extra curricular, musical, dramatic and sporting life of our community. They have been excellent ambassadors of Kent College and they deserve every success.
 
“I am also delighted for my colleagues who have worked so hard in supporting and nurturing the development of all our students. Many congratulations to them all.”
