2019 A Level results
KLB has enjoyed consistently excellent results for a number of years now. The headline figures are extremely strong. Given everything that happened around exams this year, it wouldn’t be right to quote figures for 2020, suffice to say that the grades students earned were excellent. For the previous 3 years, the number of entries that were at A*/A have been above 30%, at A* to B 60% & A* to C 80%. We certainly have a sustained level of excellence with regards attainment.
In 2019, we celebrated another extremely successful year at A level. With almost a third of entries being graded at A* or A, students have enjoyed considerable success gaining many places on competitive courses at top universities. Others are excited about the opportunities which lie within a range of apprenticeships. Our sixth form is founded on the belief that a positive approach determines success so it’s lovely for our students to see their hard work, determination and resilience well rewarded. These students have also given a great deal back to the school and local community.
As well as outstanding attainment, KLB Sixth Form has consistently been amongst the top schools in the country for Value Added, the measure of progress students have made from GCSE. In 2019, we were placed in the top 3 percent of schools and colleges nationally and the top state school in Gloucestershire.

Our record of examination achievement is excellent and we are justifiably proud of our success in helping students secure the place of their choice at university, gaining an apprenticeship or in entering employment. A high percentage of our Sixth Form go on to university, including Oxford, Cambridge and Russell Group universities, and to elite institutions worldwide. We support our students in exploring other routes, too: whether they’re interested in degree apprenticeships, further education, travel, gap years or volunteering, our priority is to help you work out the right option for each and every student.
Our Sixth Form leadership and tutor team are familiar with the changing opportunities and expectations of higher education and we provide expert guidance in this area. We give bespoke guidance to help students to prepare the best possible application for university, further education or employment.
The 16-19 Bursary Fund is paid by the Education Funding Agency (EFA) to Schools and Colleges so that they may provide financial help to students whose access to or completion of education might be inhibited by financial considerations. Each school has been allocated a fixed sum of money for the 16-19 Bursary Fund. This will vary from year to year.
Students who are eligible must apply and must also supply the required evidence to support the application. This fund is designed to help support those young people who face the greatest barriers to continuing in education post 16. The fund has two elements: the vulnerable bursary for vulnerable young people and the discretionary Bursary for young people facing financial barriers to participation. These funds can be used by the students to help pay towards the costs related to participation in full-time education, such as transport, educational visits, university open days, interviews, books and equipment.
If you think you may be eligible to apply for a Bursary, please read the 16-19 Bursary Procedure document which can be downloaded below. Please contact Mrs Price, 6th Form Administrator, if you have any questions.
