Breaking news highlights include 9 pupils so far gaining places at the prestigious University College London and Imperial College London. The successes of our pupils is particularly impressive this year as the new style A levels are considerably more demanding than in previous years. Congratulations to all the King’s A level pupils this year”, Matthew Taylor, Headmaster
Support and Guidance beyond the academic
In recent years, over 40 pupils from King’s College have gone to study at six of the top ten universities in the world (QS Ranking 2015) and at least 44% of the students study in a Russell Group university (Top UK institutions).
These magnificent achievements are a result of the rigorous, broad and comprehensive quality British education provided by King’s College, as well as the unique support and guidance that pupils receive from their teachers and fellow students throughout their whole academic journey.
“Behind the statistics, results of this quality do not happen by accident. They are the result of consistent hard work by the students themselves, supportive families and the professional approach and expertise of our top academic staff over many years”, explained Mr. Taylor.
Upper Sixth students from King’s College are provided with a special programme of guidance and advice on their journey through their last years at school in order to access to the university, including a specialized preparation programme for entry to Oxbridge universities (Oxford and Cambridge).
The student’s individual tutors are especially qualified professionals that offer them support on their academic careers and university application processes, and at the same time provide them with personal assistance, making sure they have everything they need in order to undertake their goals with assurance and comfort.
2017 IGCSE Results
King’s College students have achieved outstanding GCSE results this year, which are the best the School has achieved in over 5 years.
In the IGCSE and GCSE examinations of 2017, 39.5% of King’s College Soto’s entries this year were ranked as A*, 61.8% of passes being at an A*/A grade. The overall pass rate (A*-C grades) was 95.9%, well up on 2016.
Mr Matthew Taylor, the Headmaster, commented, “We are delighted with the results and really proud of the achievements of all the pupils. These excellent results bode well for students’ achievements in Years 12 and 13 and demonstrate how much can be achieved by motivated pupils, working with our first-rate teachers and their supportive parents.”
The GCSE results are all the more remarkable given that our students are mostly working in their second language. The results compare favorably with independent schools in the UK, some of which are highly selective in their intakes. Beneath the headlines, this was the largest cohort King’s has ever had in Year 11, a fact which makes the statistics all the more impressive. Moreover, there were superb performances across the different departments, with outstanding results in all the departments, ranging from Mathematics (85.9% A*/A), and History (79.0% A* /A) to French (98.8% A*/A), to Spanish (98.0% A*/A), and German (100 A*/A).
