Although a Kingswood education is about far more than just learning in the classroom, we pride ourselves on our strong examination performance across the School. We have listed our successes below; however, if you would like to find out more please contact us or visit us at one of our open events.

A-Level Examination Results 2023
Students at Kingswood School have celebrated outstanding A Level results, with 53% of all grades at A* or A, 83% at A* - B and a 100% pass rate.
In a year that sees a return to pre-pandemic grade boundaries, these outcomes buck the national trend and are a continuation of the very high levels of student achievement of recent years. Marking a dramatic increase on the overall grades achieved in 2019, Kingswood students continue to benefit from passionate and enthusiastic teaching and an environment that promotes success in all endeavours both inside and outside the classroom. We are very proud of our young people who, despite years of disruption to their education, have nevertheless demonstrated impressive strength of character and dedication to their studies, alongside a commitment to a wide holistic education.
We are particularly pleased with students’ achievements across a broad range of subjects, with many seeing over 90% of students achieving A* - B, including: Mathematics, Physics, Spanish, Politics, Economics, French, DT, Drama, Chinese, and RPE. This demonstrates the depth and breadth of a Kingswood education. Importantly, those students who applied are also celebrating overwhelmingly high rates of acceptance at a university of their choice, despite increased competition.
Headmaster and Principal of the Foundation, Andrew Gordon Brown, commented:
“These results are a cause for great celebration! I am very proud of our Year 13 leavers whose efforts have produced such a great outcome. Their fine attitude and commitment to their studies has been matched by the expertise and generosity of our teachers. It is heart-warming to see how our commitment to care for each individual and to educate them for life has come to fruition in this way. A Kingswood education is all about breadth, balance and wellbeing, and I am delighted that our leavers are armed with both the excellent qualifications and personal qualities to influence the world for good.”
GCSE Examination Results 2023
Students at Kingswood School, Bath are celebrating very strong GCSE/IGCSE results this year. With 42% of all results awarded at grades 9 and 8, and 62% at grades 9 - 7, students have achieved very highly across both GCSE and IGCSE examinations. Even with the well-publicised return to pre-pandemic grading levels, these results are an improvement on the grades achieved in 2019 and are a testament to this cohort’s talent and tenacity having experienced several years of unique challenge to their education.
In addition, 26 students (nearly a quarter of the year group) achieved eight or more grade 8 and 9s. Over 10% of the year group achieved a full set of 8 and 9 grades.
Headmaster, Andrew Gordon-Brown, commented:
“I am so proud of the efforts of our Year 11 pupils who worked with real purpose to achieve these impressive results. Given the move back to pre-pandemic grade boundaries, it is no mean feat that these results are ahead of 2019 and I am delighted that, once again, our pupils have set the bar high for themselves and that our teachers have guided them with such dedication and expertise.
Exciting times are now in store as they step up to take on the joys and challenges of life in Year 12. They will be joined by an equally talented group of new recruits who we have selected to join our Sixth Form. I look forward to watching them develop as our student leaders and role models over the coming terms. This strong set of results leaves them well placed to thrive in their further education, and in true Kingswood fashion, I expect to see them making the most of the many opportunities to develop their talents, both inside and outside the classroom.”
