King’s Academy students celebrate GCSE success – Best Ever Results
Today, King’s Academy Ringmer is delighted to be celebrating another year of improved
GCSE results. We would like to extend our congratulations to all of our Year 11 students on
their results, which reflect their hard work and commitment. As a school, we are incredibly
proud of them. These results, together with the fantastic recent Ofsted report, are
tantamount to the great teaching and learning which operates at the school.
This year, our students made impressive progress across the board, and the provisional
overall pass rate is the school’s best ever. Students performed exceptionally well in both
English and Maths. 76% per cent of students achieved Grade 4/5 or better in English and
70% in Maths and progress across the board is above national levels.
A number of subjects performed particularly well. Physics had a 100 per cent pass rate and
so too did BTEC Performing Arts. Art did exceptionally well with a raft of students achieving
Grade 9. These are the school’s best ever results and both staff and students can be proud
of the progress made.
Several individual students excelled, including Ben Green who achieved 7 Grade 9s as well
as an A* in further Maths and Chris Whitehead who achieved a 9 in Art and then Grade 8
and 7s in all his other subjects. Emma Stone who excelled with 9s in Triple Science and
Maths. Many other students managed to achieve the top grades. However, what was most
pleasing is that this year more King’s Academy students than ever have made real progress.
They’re now in a strong position to take the next step in education, training or employment.
The school’s Principal, Matt Hillier, said: “I would like to congratulate all of our Year 11
students on their results and wish them every success in the future. We are thrilled to see
that all our students’ hard work has paid off. With the recent Ofsted report highlighting the
good quality of education in the school, I’m really pleased to see the staff’s and students’
work coming to fruition. I know the next set of Year 11s will be looking to improve even
