Outstanding Summer 2020 Results

A Level

99% of King Edward’s students in 2020 passed all of their A levels with an improvement on last year’s results at the top level. 83% of all grades were at A*, A or B with 56% at A* and A. 34% of students (a total of 42) gained 3 or more A or A* grades and 21% of all grades were at A*. Over four fifths of the UVI cohort will proceed to Russell Group universities.

Head, Neal Parker, comments:

“I can only express my admiration at the achievements of our outgoing Upper Sixth. They have been subject to the most extraordinary pressures and unprecedented challenges, but their results reflect their dedication and hard work over two years of A-level study. Whilst we are all desperately sad that this year group was not able to demonstrate their learning and knowledge by sitting the exams, nonetheless they deserve heartfelt congratulations on some outstanding results. That over 56% of the results given at KES are at the highest possible level of A* or A grade; and that about 83% have received a B grade or better, is testament to the dedication of our King Edward’s pupils and teachers alike. These results are fully deserved by every student! This brilliant year group now leaves us with our warmest wishes for the future”.


99.2% of IGCSEs awarded in 2019 were at grade C / 4 or above with 77% of all grades at A* and A (or grades 9-7). 92% of all grades taken were awarded at A*, A or B (grades 9-6). 99.5% of students obtained the minimum 5 GCSE passes including IGCSE Mathematics and English.

Head Master, Julian Thould, comments:

“We are delighted to report another set of impressive results, particularly given the pressures involved with preparing for new specifications in a number of subjects. Our students have worked with striking commitment and industry to achieve nearly three quarters of all grades at A or A* grade. This success is a fine tribute to our students and their teachers.”
