99 per cent pass rate for Kingston’s A-Level students

Kingston's A-level results continue to be above the national average.

With the majority of A-level results now in, Kingston Council congratulates its students, who have continued to exceed national standards and achieved a 99 per cent pass rate.

The proportion of A-level entries achieving the top A* and A grades in Kingston’s sixth forms remained high at 40 per cent, well above the national average, which stands at 26 per cent this year.

Pupils in Kingston also achieved a greater proportion of A* to B grades (65 per cent) and A* to C grades (84 per cent) than can be observed nationally, where the proportions were at 52 per cent and 76 per cent respectively.*

Councillor Diane White, Kingston Council's portfolio holder for education, said:

“Another fantastic year for the borough, well done and congratulations to all of our students on their A-level results. It’s also great to see excellent results for those doing vocational pathways. A big thank you to all teachers, parents and carers for all their support."

Kingston's children's and education services are run by Achieving for Children (AfC), a social enterprise jointly established in April 2014 by Kingston and Richmond councils.
