Congratulations to our Year 11 students on their performance in the GCSE examinations. It is particularly pleasing to see 100% of pupils achieving A*- C passes in their English Language and Mathematics.
45% of grades in English were awarded A grade and 30% of Mathematics grades were awarded A*- A. Triple Science students also scored highly with 60% of Physics grades awarded A*-A.
All the pupils have achieved what they need to go on to their next courses of study at sixth forms including Christ’s Hospital, St John’s Leatherhead, St George’s Weybridge, Godalming College and Hurtwood House. We wish them every success.
There were some fantastic individual performances too: congratulations to our Head Boy, Liam, on the award of 7 A* and 2 A grades, and to Will on 4 A* and 4 A grades. Those who saw her stunning Summer Exhibition will not be surprised to hear that Lucy's Art gained her an A*.
We are extremely proud of what the students have accomplished during their time at Duke of Kent School both in and out of the classroom and it is particularly pleasing to see them achieving so well at GCSE. Their grades keep the doors wide open for the next stage of study and beyond.
As an inclusive school with a broad academic range, our focus is on enabling each child to achieve potential. It is tremendously rewarding to see once again A and A* grades awarded in all major subject areas. However, we are also celebrating today many other individual success stories for pupils whose hard work has been rewarded in some cases beyond what they would have once dreamed possible. Thanks to all our teachers and parents for their support and congratulations to the class of 2013.
