Pupils at Kent College have been celebrating success in their GCSEs with 40% of pupils achieving level 7 and above in all their subjects and one in ten pupils achieving straight 8s and 9s. Overall, 35% of grades are at the top levels of 8 and 9.

These top grades have been awarded in a breadth of subjects with over 20% of grades at level 9 in English, Food Technology, Geography, History, Music, PE and Spanish. Over 50% of grades are level 7 and above in additional subjects including Art, Dance, French, German, Latin, Textiles and Further Maths.

Grades only tell part of the story, as many pupils received results above their national predicted grades with 50% of pupils achieving on average one grade higher in all subjects and a quarter of pupils achieving two grades higher.
