The Department for Education released the official A level league table results on Thursday 24th January. This confirmed that Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School was rated as the highest performing Grammar School at A Level in the whole of Kent, the highest placed amongst 32 selective schools.
The value added score of 0.26 means that students, on average, achieved one quarter of a grade higher than their expected target grades.
David Anderson Headteacher commented, “The Sixth Form at Queen Elizabeth’s has always been a great strength of the school and it is wonderful to see the hard work and dedication of staff and students recognised in the latest league tables.
“2018 was a record breaking year for A level students at Queen Elizabeth’s; with the highest number of successful Oxbridge entries, the highest number of students progressing to Russell Group universities, the highest number of A* and A grades and the largest number of first generation students succeeding in university applications. We are delighted that our students have reached such an excellent standard in their academic studies.
“Not only have students performed well but they were also fully engaged in and tremendously supportive of the wider school, as form and subject prefects, in their charity work, volunteering in the community and engagement in competitions.
“These students were recently awarded their A level certificates and prizes in an exceptional awards presentation at St Mary of Charity Parish Church, where our guest speaker and presenter of prizes was Sir Martyn Lewis CBE.
“Our congratulations to all staff and students on this excellent recognition of their success.”
