STUDENTS and staff at Katharine Lady Berkeley are thrilled with their fantastic GCSE results this year.

82% of students achieved grade 4 or higher in both their English and maths, KLB’s best results since the move to the new grading system three years ago.

They are also particularly pleased with the 30% of all entries that were graded at grades 9-7 (equivalent to A*/A) and the 62% of students achieving grades 5 or above in English and maths.

Tim Rand, headteacher said, “We have been tremendously impressed with the commitment shown by our students to achieve the very best grades possible; the results are testament to their hard work, the tireless commitment of staff and the support of parents over the past few years.

"We are extremely proud of each and every student and their achievements.”
