King George V College is celebrating another incredibly successful year of A Level results.
The KGV class of 2014 has yet again broken all records – making the College one of the highest performing in the country.
The overall A Level pass rate is a stunning 99.3% with more than 50% of students achieving the highest grades. An impressive thirty-six students achieved Grade A* or A in all their subjects. Likewise, BTEC Diploma courses performed brilliantly with 100% of students passing their course and well over a third achieving the highest possible grade of D*D*D*
All students have done fantastically well and the following gives just a flavour of the achievements being celebrated:
100% of the students who held Oxbridge offers were successful in achieving their places. These include:
ex-Greenbank High, will be reading Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at Oxford;
ex-Maghull High, will be reading French and Spanish at Oxford;
ex-Birkdale High, will be reading Mathematics at Oxford;
ex-Merchant Taylors, will be reading French and Spanish at Cambridge;

In a year that saw record numbers of our students receiving offers for Medicine/Dentistry/Veterinarian Science, success rates were very impressive. Two examples are: Polly Simpson, ex-Greenbank High, who will be reading Medicine at Leeds University, and Simon Johnson, ex-Birkdale High, who will be reading Medicine at Nottingham University.
A sample of other students heading for prestigious universities includes: Luke Keates, ex-Meols Cop, who will be reading Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Southampton; Sophie Altham, ex-Merchant Taylors, who will be reading English at Kings College, London; Rachel Sowerbutts, ex-Christ the King, who will be reading Psychology at the University of York; Lauren Urquhart, ex-Greenbank High, who will be reading Geography at Durham; Aoife McCann-Jackson, ex-Range, who will be reading Classics also at Durham; CharlesIllingsworth, ex-Tarleton High, who will be reading PPE at Warwick; and Aimee Westley, ex-Greenbank High, who will be reading Law at Newcastle.
KGV Principal Adele Wills commented, ”This is a fantastic achievement on any measure. I am proud of the hard work that these results show, both on the part of students and our committed staff. Most students will be progressing to their chosen University or to productive employment opportunities and I know that the skills and knowledge they will have gained from their time at KGV will provide a worthy foundation for their future success”.
John Rostron MBE, Chair of Governors, added, ”I want to congratulate students and staff for another outstanding year at KGV. The College is going from strength to strength. With the opening of our new building extension in 2015, we can expect a very bright future for our present and future students”.
