Pupils at Kingsdale Foundation School in West Dulwich are in high spirits after receiving a batch of the school’s best ever A Level results, writes Jessica Aszkenasy…

Nearly 40 per cent of all grades achieved were  A* or A, nearly two-thirds were between  A* and B and around 90 per cent were between A* and C.

Five students achieved three A*s each and 30 achieved an average of three A grades or higher.

Almost 75 per cent of Kingsdale graduates have secured places at Russell Group Universities, including Oxford, Durham, Bristol, Warwick, Glasgow and King’s College London.

Fifteen per cent will be attending conservatoires such as the Royal Academy of Music, Trinity College London, the Royal Drawing School or 1994 Group universities.

“I would also like to pay tribute to all of our students who may not have reached the dizzy heights but whose endeavours and hard work have enabled them to pursue their own exciting pathway of choice.”
