Duke of Kent School celebrates Year 11 GCSE results PDF Print E-mail

Duke of Kent School celebrates the results gained by the class of 2014. We are delighted to see the hard work of this fantastic group of young people rewarded with great results, including our highest ever number of A and A* grades. In total 44% of grades were awarded at A*-A,  74% at A*-B.

59% of Mathematics grades, 41% of English Language and 56% of English Literature grades were awarded at A*-A. Science students also scored highly, with A-A* grades running at 48% in Biology, 47% in Chemistry and 62% in Physics. 100% of pupils achieved an A* to C pass in English and 96% in Mathematics.

With our inclusive approach and broad academic range, it is immensely gratifying to see such high results achieved across the whole spread of core and option subjects. High expectations, hard work and great teaching have seen pupils making extraordinary progress. Many of the C grades awarded this year were every bit as hard won as the A*s.

Our programme to stretch and challenge our learners has also seen successes for Year 9 pupils achieving their Media GCSE this year and our first ever AS level qualifications for five Y11 students taking the Extended Project Qualification with entries as diverse as a study of the Falklands War and the development of a non-slip surface for surf boards.

"We are extremely proud of all that the students have accomplished during their time at Duke of Kent School: they have given their all in the classroom, on the stage, in the art studio, in the concert hall and on the sports field. Showing a real heart of service, whether in fundraising or volunteering here and in the wider community, they have stepped up to every challenge placed before them."

100% of pupils achieved the benchmark of 5 A* to C grades, with 96% of pupils achieving 5 A* - C including Maths and English. 11% of pupils achieved A*-A grades in all subjects. All of our pupils will be going on to study A Levels at schools and colleges around the county , including Hurtwood House, Reigate Grammar, Godalming College and Royal Alexandra and Albert School. We wish them every happiness and every success in the next step of their academic journey. Thanks to our parents and staff for all the support they have given and our warmest congratulations to the class of 2014.

Our aim as a school is to nurture the talents and energy of each pupil in as creative and vibrant a way as possible. The quality we most like to see, from prospective and current pupils, is a spirit of enquiry. It is this spirit that produces a real appetite for learning and development.

Our programme requires a great deal of commitment from pupils and teachers. This commitment grows naturally in the unique atmosphere we have created at this school.

From September 2009, Duke of Kent School began offering local independent co-education from 3(+) to GCSE.

Why did the School take this step?

  • Parental requests over many years
  • Needed within the locality
  • Existing facilities already appropriate for the new age-range
  • Enables the School to attract pupils from a wider geographical radius
  • Freedom from previous constitutional constriction
