Hard Work Returns Superb A' Level Results

Beth, Ryan, Thomas and Holly all celebrated exceptional A' level results.

We are celebrating another year of superb A' Level results across all subjects thanks to the hard work and dedication of our students and staff.

This year, we have seen an increase in the proportion of Sixth Formers choosing academic A’ Levels. Students have achieved an average B grade across a broad range of subjects from English Literature and Mathematics to Art and Business.

King James offers a tailored pathway to all of its students; one that will help them to secure a place at University, in training or in employment. Our latest graduates are about to take the next step on their career pathway, with the majority starting degree courses this month at Universities including Durham, Newcastle, York and Leeds, as well as others further afield. They will be studying a diverse range of subjects from academic degrees in Mathematics, Biopharmaceutical Science and History to specialist degrees in subjects such as Nursing, Sports Coaching and Events Management.

Notable successes this year included Beth H who achieved an A* average across four A’ Levels in English Literature, Art, Performing Arts and Drama. Beth, who will be attending Durham University in September, was also successful in securing funding via the prestigious Robert Young Scholarship.

Ryan B will also be starting Durham University to study a Degree in Mathematics having gained excellent grades in Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics.

Thomas M achieved an average A grade across A’ Levels in Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Geography. He will be starting a Degree in Chemical Engineering at Newcastle University.

Holly H achieved an average A grade across her four A’ Levels in English Literature, Art, Performing Arts and Drama. She will be working at King James until January when she then departs for Brazil!

Callum H, who achieved an average A grade in Art, Photography and Applied Science will be pursuing Media at Sunderland University; and Abbey C, who excelled in Psychology, Sociology, Applied Science and Geography, will start a Degree in Forensic Science at Northumbria University.

We would like to thank our students and parents for their continued hard work and support, and wish our leavers every success.
