Kings Norton Girls’ School Celebrate Stunning Results in New Look GCSE’s

Kings Norton Girls’ School celebrates a stunning set of GCSE results today despite the additional challenges of the new exams.

Grades 7 and above: 16% higher than the national average at 36%

Grades 4 and above: 22% higher than national average at 88%

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 successes at A Level, this truly marks a year of excellent academic and personal achievements for students at the school.

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 Maddy Abraham, Fatimah Akbar, Izzy Brookes, Hannah Carnall, Jessica Coley, Lucy Doerry, Poppy Ellis, Evie Harding, Kyanna Harney, Claudia Hughes, Jennifer Hwang, Isabella Ivory, Elodie Kang, Holly Mason, Elspeth McGuigan, Olivia Meunier, Annie Noble, Candice Russell, Kylene Santos, Anna Underwood and Brigid Vincent who all achieved 9 or more grades 9-7.

Ishpreet said “KNGS has been so encouraging and has allowed me to excel, thank you very much.”

Student Jennifer commented “I wouldn’t have come this far without all the support from the school and my teachers. Thank you KNGS for everything.”

“KNGS has supported me through the whole of my school career and now has helped me achieve my great results!” Izzy

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

Headteacher Gill Fox commented “I am delighted by this year’s GCSE results which have bucked the national trend. I wholeheartedly congratulate our students on their examination success; they really have worked hard to achieve a stunning set of results against a backdrop of considerable change. I am very proud of the culture of high aspiration, mutual support and encouragement which the girls themselves drive. We could not do it without the exceptional relationships between staff and students which are at the very heart of our community at Kings Norton Girls’ School. Well done and a big thank you to everybody”
