Great resilience shown by students


Analysis of the A-level results at King David High School indicate that 63% of grades awarded are at A*-B level, and 32% of grades were A*A. King David is extremely pleased that a staggering 70% of students who applied via UCAS achieved the grades to gain places at their first-choice university. This cohort of students has shown great resilience and pragmatism in the face of the pandemic, remaining focused upon their studies during lockdowns and periods of remote learning. Despite the uncertainty, the cohort, as a whole, 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 at King David. There are many impressive individual achievements with a few students achieving A* grades across all subjects. Daniel, who only just turned 17 in March, will take his place at Imperial College to study aeronautical engineering and Isabella, an outstanding cellist and flautist, will read music at the University of Oxford. King David students are willing to travel to all parts of the UK to further their studies. Lara will read mathematics at the University of Edinburgh while Maia and Abigail will study biochemistry at Queens University in Belfast, and University of Cardiff respectively. The pandemic has created great interest in studying healthcare sciences and future alumni of King David will be wellrepresented in this field. King David student Zoe will take her place to study medicine at the University of Manchester, with her research skills supported by an excellent extended project on autoimmune diseases.
