King George V College students celebrate great results despite the disruption caused to students caused by the terrible OFSTED report in 2014.

Grade A* to C were achieved by 80% of the College’s students while over 53% received the highest possible grades and the college’s overall A level pass rate remains consistent at 99%.

Principal Adele Wills said results were strong across the college’s 38 A level subjects, with a significant number of subject areas achieving 100% high grades (grades A* to B).

The college also received a 100% pass rate for BTEC Advanced Level Extended Diplomas with 95% of these at distinction grade or above.

“Today’s outstanding results are recognition of the hard work students have put into their studies this year. My staff have been instrumental in supporting and inspiring them to get the results they have worked so diligently to achieve,” Adele said.

“These results reflect the tremendous strides we have taken since the Ofsted inspection in October and fully illustrate the commitment we have to valuing our students and building their futures.

“Many of our students have achieved such excellent grades that they will be able to pick and choose their university including Oxford or Cambridge.

“Our results over the past two years clearly demonstrate why students choose to study at King George V. If you have the ambition to get to the top, we can help you get there.”

Julian McInerney, Chair of Governors added:

“I would like to reiterate everything the Principal has said, and on behalf of the Board of Governors, congratulate all students and staff for their tremendous efforts this year.

“We see this as another positive step towards establishing, KGV, once again, as one of the outstanding colleges in the country.”
