 Record Breaking GCSE Students at Kingsdale!

 

Freddie Mitchell

We believe Frederick Mitchell, Deputy Head Prefect at Kingsdale Foundation School has set an unbelievable record with 11 Grade 9s, 1A** and 2As* in his GCSE exams this year i.e. 14A*s or better under the old currency.  This is a phenomenal achievement in reformed exams and means that Kingsdale has almost certainly produced the highest achieving student in the country at GCSE for possibly 5 consecutive years! This is an incredible clean sweep of top grades which may well set a national record that remains out of reach for the foreseeable future.

After seeing his sensational results Freddie said, “Honestly, I’m speechless.  It’s a sensational feeling but I was not expecting these results.  I tried my hardest and it has paid off!  The academic and emotional support from my parents and the school has without doubt contributed to my achievements.  Thank you all for your help!”

Freddie’s delighted parents said, “We knew that he would do well but we did not know he would do this well.

Freddie has always enjoyed working but here he fell in love with studying.  Kingsdale has really inspired him.

Freddie clicked with Kingsdale in Year 6 and his instinct has proved to be true.”

Ilinca Radulescu

Freddie was not our only star performer as Ilinka-Maria Radulescu, who arrived in England from Romania 2 years ago, also did amazingly well in achieving 9 Grade 9s, 2A*s and 2 Grade 8s.  In any other school she would surely have been one of a kind. Ilinka said,

“I am overwhelmed as I didn’t expect these grades.  I only moved to England two years ago so I wasn’t expecting such grades in essay based subjects such as English and History.  I worked really hard and I want to thank my teachers and my parents for all the support that they gave me from the beginning of Year 10 until this moment.”

We had many more proud individual and collective achievements this year as a result of the dedication and hard work of students and staff. Over 10 students achieved 4 or more Grade 9s and our provisional results indicate that approximately 80% of students achieved a good pass in both English and Maths and similarly half of the cohort achieved the English Baccalaureate which was no mean feat in itself.

Freddie Mitchell, Ilinka Radulescu, Seth Ludewick (7 Grade 9s, 2x8, 3x7, 2xA*) and Dylan Besson 5x9, 4x8,5As)

have achieved a breathtaking 31 Grade 9s between them!
