Over 900 students at King Edward VI College have gained outstanding A level results. The college has maintained its long history of excellent results, with an A level pass rate of 99.4% in comparison with a national pass rate of 98.1%, confirming once again the college's status as one of the very best A level providers in the country.

Remley Mann, who took up the post of Principal last September, said that she was delighted to see further improvements to the college's already excellent results: 62.7% of A level entries gained one of the top A*, A or B grades, almost ten percentage points clear of the national A* - B rate of 52.8%. There were 100% pass rates in 31 subjects and A*/A/B pass rates of 60% or more in 26 subjects.

Outstanding individual performances included the following students who all gained three or more A* grades:

  • David Birnie (Ellowes Hall Sports College)
  • Elliott Cox (Heathfield Upper School)
  • Cameron Di Leo (Redhill School)
  • Kirsty Gledhill (Ridgewood High School)
