International Baccalaureate

The average score for the third year running was 37 points, which, when translated into UCAS (university entrance) points is similar to the number of points awarded for straight A*/ As at A level. This score is likely to place Kent College amongst the top IB schools in the UK again this year.

Head Girl, Abby Cox scored a perfect 45 points for the Diploma and has been offered a place at Durham University, Sophie Blummers scored 44 and will study Medicine at Exeter, Anna Sophia Vendruscolo scored 43 points and secured a place at LSE to read Economics. Success means that scholars will go on to top universities in the UK as well as across Europe; Louis Kind has a place to read Global Governance at the prestigious Esada, Barcelona with support from UNICEF. Places have also been awarded at Melbourne, Maastricht, Humbolt Berlin, Lawrence to read Medicine, Law and International Business. A number of students achieved a bilingual diploma and every candidate passed. These results match the best at Kent College, which is regularly noted in the top 10 IB schools in the UK.

A Levels

Kent College students and staff are celebrating another successful year for A level results, with over 71% passed at grades A*-B, and almost half of all grades at A* - A. 14 students achieved the coveted 3 or more A*- As.

The success of Kent College students means that they will access courses across a wide range of subjects, including: Medicine (Bristol and UAE), Music (York, Royal Hollaway), Art (Central St Martins), Economics (Durham and Warwick), Natural Sciences (UCL and Loughborough), and Engineering (Structural Civil, Electrical and Acoustic).

Along with top scores in the IB announced in July these A level results secure UCAS points (the basis for university offers) with an average of over 150 per student: the equivalent of A* A A.

Executive Head, Dr. David Lamper said,

“I am delighted with the very high levels of academic achievement shown by the students who took examinations this summer. They worked extremely hard whilst at the same time adding an immense amount to the extracurricular, musical, dramatic and sporting life of our community. They have been excellent ambassadors of Kent College and they deserve every success. I am also delighted for my colleagues who have worked so hard in supporting and nurturing the development of all our students. Many congratulations to them all.”


Kent College is celebrating another year of excellent GCSE results following this summer’s examinations. The courses and the grading have changed for all subjects, and the nature of assessments has altered with much less emphasis on coursework - but the personalised approach at Kent College has ensured that students achieve a high level of success.

The overall pass rate was 97% and 86% of students achieved 5 GCSEs at 4-9 (the equivalent of A*-C). The number of students who achieved 5 good GCSEs including Maths and English was similarly impressive as was the high percentage of top grades achieved.
