2019 A Levels and BTEC Vocational Qualification Results

Knights Templar Sixth Form students sat exams in a wide range of qualifications this year and have collected a well-deserved set of results today in both A Levels and Vocational Courses (BTECs).

We are especially pleased that 37% of students studying at Knights Templar 6th form achieved 1 or more of the highest A*/A grades (or equivalent). This included:

  • 13 students who achieved the coveted three or more A*/A at A Level
  • 4 students who achieved top grades (Distinction*) in the vocational Business Diploma course.

Many more students excelled themselves and exceeded our expectations.

Students attending our partner performing arts school in Hitchin, Emil Dale, are also celebrating, with 80% of grades in their intensive BTEC Musical Theatre Diploma being the top Distinction or Distinction* grades and 15 students achieving 1 or more of the very top Distinction* grade.

Some outstanding individual student achievements at Knights Templar are:

Headteacher, Tim Litchfield said:
“I am incredibly proud of all our students and it is a tribute to hard work and a great attitude that there is so much success here at KTS.
Supported by their parents and their extremely dedicated, inspirational teachers, our students have worked with great determination to exceed our expectations. What makes these levels of achievement so impressive is that they were combined with an outstanding commitment to a huge range of extra-curricular activities. I have been particularly pleased with the incredible success of the students studying our vocational courses (BTEC), which has proved a successful route into University or apprenticeship.

This has year has been a tough year for both students and teachers. The new A levels, the continued uncertainty about grade boundaries and new styles of questions has been challenging, but The Knights Templar School continues to develop well rounded young people, prepared for the world beyond school and the next chapter in their lives, whether that be on an apprenticeship, University or the world of work. Congratulations to all our students and I wish them every success for the future.”

Gill Hopkins, Head 6th Form, added:
“This is the first year The Knights Templar School's Sixth Form students are receiving their results to reformed A Levels across all subjects having studied full two year programmes. Our students, supported by their teachers have worked incredibly hard over the last two years and fully deserve the excellent results achieved across the year group.

Like many young people of their age they are now stepping out into the world and embarking on a diverse range of options which include the traditional university routes, high profile apprenticeships programmes and a number of amazing gap year and foreign employment opportunities.

It has been a pleasure to work with this group of students over the last two years and we wish them every success for the future.”
