GCSE results 2019: Kimbolton School
Kimbolton School is celebrating another excellent set of GCSE and IGCSE results. A tremendous 36 per cent of all grades were awarded at the top 9 or 8 (equivalent to the old A*) and 58 per cent at 9-7 (old A*/A).
Twenty-nine candidates achieved nine or more 9 to 7 grades. Included in these results were those for International GCSEs in nine subjects.
Ella Edwards from Kimbolton and Ben Smith (Buckden) both achieved nine 9s – the new top grade.
Close behind with at least nine grade 9 or 8s were Patrick Choy Winters (Great Paxton), Amelia Crimp (Cardington), Andrew Dowdell-Stent and Grace Johnson (both Godmanchester), Kobe Grant and Jasmine Henson (both St Neots), Christopher Neal (Eaton Ford) and Alistair Severn (Great Gransden).
Other top performers, all with at least nine 9 to 7 grades and at least eight 9 or 8s, were Emily Butts (Kimbolton), Lauren Elliott (Great Stukeley), Elio Nejim (Stukeley Meadows), Alice Oldfield (Stow Longa), Sasha-Lee Pescod (Hail Weston), Madison Peters (Fenstanton) and Charlotte Wright (Brampton).
The vast majority of the year group will be continuing in Kimbolton school’s sixth form next month where they will be joined by around 20 students from other schools.
Jonathan Belbin, the headmaster, said: “These excellent results reflect the hard work of our pupils and staff and I am especially delighted by the total of 174 9s achieved by a wide range of pupils. Indeed 9 was our second most popular grade (after7)!”
