A-levels: ‘Magnificent’ results at Kings of Wessex
THE majority of A-level students at The Kings of Wessex Academy were jumping for joy after ripping open their exam results.
Students posted an impressive 98 per cent pass rate, while more than a quarter of them had either A or A* grades.
The academy’s headteacher Chris Richardson praised his students, describing their results as ‘magnificent’, with five students gaining two or more A* grades, and a further eight achieving three or more A grades.
Three of those students will now continue their studies at Cambridge University.
One of the students, 18-year-old Brent Stewart, said: “I got three A stars and an A, which is what I needed to get into Cambridge University, and I’m absolutely ecstatic.

“I was planning on having to use their available spaces system to see if I could get in, but now I don’t have to and I can study natural sciences at Churchill College.”
Mr Richardson said: “It is a privilege to be able to join with our students in celebrating their magnificent achievements. The A-level results this year are once again a testament to the hard work and commitment of both the students and their teachers.
