Kings Norton Girls’ School Celebrate Fantastic GCSE Results Significantly Above National Average

Kings Norton Girls’ School celebrates a fantastic set of GCSE results which sit significantly above the national average, confirming the Ofsted Outstanding judgement in July 2019:

Grades 7 and above: 17% higher than the national average at 38%

Grades 4 and above: 20% higher than the national average at 87%

In addition, most subjects have achieved half a grade higher that the national average, with many subjects achieving over 1 grade higher than the national average results.

Adding to last week’s outstanding success with the school’s best ever A Level results, KNGS celebrates another year of excellent academic and personal achievements for students at GCSE.

We are extremely proud of the individual achievements of each of our students which are a reflection of their hard work, resilience and determination. A huge thank you to staff for their care, support and for instilling the self-belief which is so significant a factor in their success at KNGS.

Among the girls celebrating today are Maryam Ahmed, Jodie Carreon, Isabel Catling, Zhixin Chen, Georgia Darling, Evie Fleming, Emmaline Hassan-Smith, Beth Illy, Aiyana Mulrain-Gobbinsingh, Viktoria Nicklin, Abby Nolan, Amy Pagnam, Jessica Ranford, Sophie Singleton, Hazel Smith, Libby Styles and Lucy Wilson who all achieved 9 or more grades 9-7.

Jodie said “The support and genuine help from teachers is indescribable and I cannot thank them enough.”

Student Ella commented “Incredible! Amazing teachers and school!”

“What an amazing school, I never would have imagined that I’d do as well as I have without all the support and help they give us. Honestly so grateful for what KNGS has done!” Lois

We very much look forward to welcoming these talented students back into our Sixth Form in September, where they will build on their achievements, and continue to make the most of the opportunities, both academic an extra-curricular over the next two years.

Headteacher Nicola Raggett commented “I am delighted with this year’s GCSE results which have bucked the national trend. I am exceptionally proud of our students. These outstanding achievements are due to the hard work and determination of students and staff; a culture in school of high expectations and aspirations alongside outstanding teaching and learning in a nurturing environment. I wish all our students the very best for their futures.”
