Mount Kelly pupils have followed recent A Level success with another outstanding set of GCSE results. Over 40% of all grades awarded were 7-9, almost twice the national figure, and over 90% of all candidates were awarded 9-4. 20% of Mount Kelly pupils scored 8 or 9 in 5 or more subjects.
The School’s scientists performed particularly strongly, with 66% of Biology, Chemistry and Physics papers graded at a 7 or above. In the other STEM subjects 70% of Design Technology and nearly 50% of the Mathematics examinations were graded at a 7 and above.
Head Master, Guy Ayling, commented, “I am delighted by these results and all the hard work that they represent, both from the pupils and their teachers. What is particularly impressive is that they have also swum at national level, hiked the various Ten Tors and Duke of Edinburgh challenges, played first team sport or sung in the award-winning Chamber Choir, all of which also take significant commitment and energy. We look forward to seeing them all next month as they embark on their Sixth Form studies.”
