A Level and GCSE Results

The fantastic results produced at King’s Rochester represent a huge amount of hard work and dedication by both the pupils and their teachers.  King’s thrives on the rapport between staff and pupils both in and out of the classroom and we pride ourselves on knowing the pupils and their families very well. 

Our results come alongside the benefits of the much wider education on offer at King’s.  Our pupils excel in sport, drama and music among many other enterprises and it is the personal qualities they develop alongside their academic performance which makes them such engaging young men and women with bright futures ahead.  

GCSE Results 2019

King’s Rochester is celebrating another year of excellent GCSE results and outstanding achievements by pupils today.  With 26% of all grades at 9-8 (A*) and 88% of all grades at 9-4 (A*-C), pupils have continued to flourish after the shift away from coursework-based qualifications to the new linear exams and numbered grading system.

28% of pupils outperformed their predicted grades with an average increase of 1 to 3 grades.  This means pupils have achieved higher grades at King’s that they might have done had they gone to school elsewhere. The top 40% of the year (comparable to a grammar school cohort), achieved 54% of their grades at 9-8 (A*) with 93% at 9-6 (A*-B).

As the world’s oldest Cathedral Choir School, we are delighted with the success of our former Cathedral Choristers, all achieving A*/A in their music examinations. The Music department achieved 100% of all grades at A*-B. (Please note that currently the Music examination is still graded rather than numbered).

With excellent results across all subjects, this has been another outstanding year for a range of departments. Art achieved nearly 30% of grades at 9 and core subjects English Literature, English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and Physics this year achieved 25% or more of all grades at 9-8’s (A*).
