Head Girl, Bethan Savage, achieved an equally impressive 4A* grades and 1A grade and will be moving on to Brasenose College, Oxford University, to read Law with German Law.

Approximately three quarters of Keswick’s students have secured their first choice university place with the remainder moving on to apprenticeships or other qualifications.


“The continued hard work of the students and the inspirational teaching of our colleagues has been rewarded with these A-level results. They underline the seven-year commitment to study. There are many changes to A-level course content. We are making sure that individually and collectively schools in Cumbria are able to share accurate information with the media and the public who are as keen as we are to celebrate the successes of our students and to congratulate our school staff.”

“As always there are a number of queries over re-marks and grade boundaries and so, once the official DfE September checking exercise has been completed we will issue our headline data. For now, it is essential we focus on the success of each of our individual students.”
Simon Jackson (Head teacher)
