Academic Achievements

Over the past five years: 60% of A level grades have been A*, A or B and over a third have been A*/A. Our results for 2019 are available here.


Jeremy (A*A*A*A), Head Boy (2018/19),It was a phenomenal experience to be Head Boy at AKS and to be involved with all our community service initiatives. I’ve also appreciated both the support and academic challenge that I’ve received during my time here - I couldn’t have imagined a better place to grow up”.

England U18 Hockey Captain, Mollie (biochemistry and genetics at Nottingham University), “I’ve appreciated not only the range of co-curricular opportunities but also the great academic support. I’m particularly grateful to my teachers who have enabled me to pursue my hockey by supporting me outside of lessons and helping me manage my time”.


“What is particularly pleasing about our students’ success is the wide range of courses that are being taken, ranging from medicine to management, criminology to computing, and science to songwriting”, Kevin Maund, Head of Sixth Form.

In 2019 our leavers have gone on to read a wide range of subjects including: Computer Sciences at UCL, Biochemistry and Genetics at Nottingham; Biology at Sheffield; Economics at York; Psychology at Manchester; Chemistry at Kings College London and Medicine at a variety of sought-after universities.

A significant proportion of students go on to study at Russell Group Universities, with others choosing prestigious apprenticeships with companies, including British Aerospace, with others, who have gained the results they need, taking a break to pursue interests outside of education including travel and philanthropy.

Excellent grades allow students to choose their own routes.

“We are proud not just of the superb examination results our students achieve but of the many ways they contribute, whether it is performing on stage, on the sports pitch, in service of others or elsewhere - there is no typical AKS student.” David Harrow, Headmaster.
