Lynn Mayes, Principal at Queen Katharine Academy, said: “I am immensely proud of our students who have received excellent grades again this year. These results are a true reflection of how much work they and our fantastic team of staff have put in over the last couple of years. In the wider context of what is going on in the world, these are even more remarkable.

“QKA students enter year 12 from a wide range of starting points and from a broad range of schools. They have consistently proved that through hard work, dedication and supportive families, coupled with expert care and guidance, they can achieve grades and futures that some would not have thought possible at the start of their KS5 journeys. QKA students have now secured places at some of the most prestigious institutions in the country where we know they will continue to make the academy proud for many years to come.”

Within the cohort, there are a series of incredible individual performances which span the range of A level and vocational qualifications offered at QKA.
