Exam Results

Kensington Aldridge Academy are delighted to announce a fantastic first set of A level results for our founder sixth formers, which build on the success of our first AS results last year. Students have produced results that significantly exceed performance nationally. Our progress score indicates our students perform a third of a grade better at A Level than those with the same GCSE results in other schools. 62% of all results were A*- B (99.6% were graded A* – E). Half of all students have progressed to Russell Group universities (with two students to Oxbridge). They are exactly what we hoped for, and underline the outstanding provision here at KAA.
