King Henry VIII School is proud to report a superb year of examination success at A level. The Year 13 students have continued the school’s fantastic academic tradition.
Incredibly, 24 students, almost 1 in 4 of the year group, achieved A* or A grades in all of their subjects. 38% of all A levels were awarded the top grades of A* or A and almost two thirds were graded A*, A, or B. In and amongst these figures are some outstanding individual performances with 12 students securing A* grades in at least two of their subjects, including Senior Prefect, Eniola Awodiya, who will now study Medicine at Oxford University and Josh Simpson, whose 3 A* grades will take him to Warwick University to study Mathematics. We are equally as proud of other students who have exceeded all expectations in gaining excellent grades that will now see them progress to the university course of their choice.
Headmaster, Jason Slack, commented, ‘This academic success has been gained against the background of many other achievements from an extremely talented year group, some of whom have just returned from their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award expedition in the Lake District and others having participated in a Music Tour to Prague. We are delighted with their achievements.’
