Headteacher Mark Harris said, “Congratulations to all of our students who have achieved a brilliant set of results. These students have looked after each other whilst working incredibly hard and have been rewarded with some excellent results. We look forward to welcoming lots of them back into our Sixth Form and wish all of them the very best of luck. As a school we are delighted with the results which show the quality of the teaching on offer, the hard work of our support and pastoral staff and also the support of our parents. As always this is a team effort and is the result of 5 years of hard work.

This cohort of students spent the Covid lockdown periods working from home and it is only through their hard work and the support of their parents and teachers that they have achieved such an excellent set of results. Well done to them all.”

A Level Results 2023

Well done to our students, for another year of excellent A level results. Over a third of grades awarded were A or A*.

Mark Harris, Headteacher said, “Congratulations to all of our students who are collecting their results today. Their hard work has been rewarded with an excellent set of results which is the launch pad to move on to exciting futures at some of the best universities around the country and abroad, high level apprenticeships with some fantastic local firms and amazing gap year experiences. This is the first set of external exams that these students have taken in an exam hall due to the impact of Covid and the fact that they have achieved so much is testament to their resilience.

The range of our students’ achievements is outstanding, from Art to Spanish with everything in between. Some of the A level Art work displayed at our performing arts showcase in June was of professional quality and this is reflected in the results. Our students’ hours of conversational Spanish practice paid off with their grades. Many of our students took a fourth A level or completed an Extended Project Qualification alongside their A levels.

This group of students have contributed so much to the school throughout their time in Sixth Form, with their charity fundraising, their work with younger students and contributions to sporting and music events. They have been excellent ambassadors for the school and we wish them well with their many exciting plans and look forward to hearing of their further success in the future.”

We are delighted with the progress they have made despite the challenges of the last couple of years and we could not be more thrilled for them.
Headteacher Mark Harris said “It has been great to see so many happy faces this morning as students collect their results. These are the best results the school has ever achieved, even better than the centre assessed grades of the previous two years. Students should be proud of what they have achieved. We are delighted with the results which demonstrate the quality of the teaching, pastoral and support staff I have the privilege to work with, and our hugely supportive parents and carers. Well over half of these young people will be joining us back in our outstanding sixth form where nearly half of grades achieved this year were A and A*.”

98% of our students are staying in education with 2% going into employment with training.

A Level Results 2022

Well done to our amazing Year 13.

44% A*/A

Mark Harris Headteacher “Well done to all of our Year 13 students who have picked up their grades today. The hard work of our students and their teachers has been rewarded with a fantastic set of results – just under half of the grades were A*/A.  It is great to see students moving on to exciting university courses and high level apprenticeships. These students have shown great resilience and have coped brilliantly with the disruption caused by Covid. These students did not get the opportunity to sit their GCSEs and so these were the first set of external exams they have faced and they have performed superbly. The independent learning skills they had to use over lockdown will stand them in good stead in their future education and employment. 

It is another year of excellent sixth form results. We are very proud of all our students have achieved and their contributions to our school community. We wish them well and they now become part of our Kirkbie Kendal Alumni.”
