KAA celebrates another excellent set of A-Level results
“This year’s are particularly special, as many of the students are from our original “founder” Year 7 cohort who joined when we opened KAA in 2014, and all students have worked extra hard to overcome the disruption that Covid caused to their A Level courses.
At the time of writing, over 95% of our 103 Year 13 students have secured a preferred university place, with over half to Russell Group and two to Oxbridge. A small number are enrolled in apprenticeship courses from Sept, in industries ranging from food to finance.
Some headlines from this year’s results are:
- 51% of all grades are either A* or A
- 79% are A*-B
- 93% are A*-C
- The average grade of a KAA student is B+
There are plenty of individual success stories for our students and their families to celebrate today – too many to share here – but highlights include:
- Two of our founder KAA students secured Oxbridge places: Leila achieved three A*s and one A will attend Balliol College, Oxford to study History & Politics, and Ahmed achieved five A* grades and will read Natural Sciences at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge.
- Another of our founder students, Leah, will be the first person in her family to go to university, after achieving 3 A*s in Government & Politics, Religious Education and English. Leah has secured a place at Durham to read Politics – having won a number of debating trophies in her time at KAA, we don’t doubt she will go onto great things in the arena of student politics.
- Many students who transferred from other schools to join KAA at Sixth Form also achieved stellar results, for example Maram who secured 3 A*s in Chemistry, Biology and Maths and will be reading Medicine at Imperial College London.”
