Vicky Willis, Head of School said “we are thrilled with our students’ achievements. The vast majority have been successful in gaining places on courses of their choice for September and we are delighted that many are able to stay on in our sixth form and build on this success studying the brilliant IBCP.  A huge thank you must go to the amazing staff team for their relentless hard work in preparing students and building their confidence.”

The excellent GCSE examination results come on the back of the superb IBCP sixth form results the Year 13 students achieved last week. King Ethelbert remains one of the highest performing non-selective schools in Kent.
