At Christ the King, our mission is to help our students be the best that they can be.
In a highly competitive, global employment market, top-grade examination results are essential if young people are to succeed in their chosen careers. At Christ the King, we have some of the best success rates in London and the South East.
But examination passes aren’t an end in themselves: they’re so important because they allow our students to achieve their ambitions and progress to some of the most elite universities in the country. And the proportion of our students that go on to university exceeds the average for private schools.
"I enjoyed every minute of my time at Christ the King"
Vincent Lai is now studying Economics and Maths at Bristol University, a member of the elite Russell Group. Vincent says he ‘enjoyed every minute’ of his time at Christ the King - and left us with an A* in Maths, an A in Economics and a B in Further Maths at A Level. ‘My teachers were always there when I needed them,’ he reflects. ‘Whether it was in the classroom or outside lessons, if there was something I didn’t understand I could always approach them.
Vincent’s fellow student, Sarah Oluwapelumi Babs-Apata, has headed off to top-rated Leeds University to study for a degree in Civil Engineering with Architecture after achieving a triple-starred distinction in her Engineering BTEC Diploma. With a shortage of young women choosing Engineering as a career, we know that Sarah will be an inspirational role model for her chosen profession.
Vincent and Sarah are just two of our high-achieving students, and this summer, our A Level and BTEC students out-performed the national pass rate for the 18th year!
Our 816 A Level students achieved a pass rate of 99 per cent
Every single one of our 353 BTEC Diploma candidates passed their exams
In 68 A Level subjects, our students exceeded the national average pass rates
In 60 A Level subjects the pass rate was 100 per cent
