Well done to the King David class of 2023
Analysis of the Year 13 results at King David indicate that 53% of grades awarded are at A*- B level, and 37% of grades were A*- A. Staff at the school are extremely pleased that many students achieved the grades to gain places at their first-choice university. For their GCSEs this cohort of students were awarded teacher assessed grades, but they have demonstrated, through these results, their resilience by performing well in externally assessed A-level and BTEC exams. Despite the uncertainty surrounding grade deflation and lack of university places, staff said this cohort have been extremely motivated to succeed in their chosen pathways and this has been reflected in an excellent set of A-level and BTEC results. There were many impressive individual achievements with a few students achieving A* grades across all subjects. Alexis will take her place at the University of Leeds to study mathematics after studying for four A-levels. Head boy and head girl, Jacob and Esther, will both study history at the University of Bristol. Rowen will study history at the University of York. Isobella and Kathryn will also attend this university, studying English-linguistics and electronic engineering respectively. The pandemic has created great interest in studying healthcare sciences and future alumni of King David will be well-represented in this field. Tom will study medicine at Edge Hill University, Ruby and Alisha will study pharmacy at the University of Birmingham and UCLAN respectively. Humanities and arts were very well represented this year with James and Isabelle attending the University of Leeds to read English literature and film studies respectively. Some students plan to stay closer to home with the University of Liverpool welcoming Nandana (law), Shaun (mathematics), Luca (business economics), Rami (computer science and electronics) Mihails (geography) and Olivia (English).
