New teaching talent arrives at King George V College

KING George V (KGV) College has recruited a diverse range of talented new teachers to take students' learning to the next level.

Principal Adele Wills says KGV is going from strength to strength, and is injecting new teaching talent into the college's ranks.

The college in Southport recently celebrated a 99% A Level pass rate and is now welcoming students for the new college year.

"This has been an action-packed year for KGV. We've opened our £4million state of the art creative arts building and welcomed new governors to the college's board. The exam results last month were really the 'cherry on top' and demonstrate the hard work teachers and students consistently put in.  We've now employed six new teachers across a range of subject areas including languages, media, electronics and science.  On behalf of all staff and students I'd like to welcome them to the team and look forward to working with them to help continue to give students the excellent standard of teaching they are used to." said Principal Adele Wills.

The mark of any college's success is its students and this summer KGV's achieved outstanding A-Level results with a 99% pass rate. Grades A* to C were achieved by 80% of the college while more than 53% received the highest possible grades.

Ms Wills said she and the whole staff body were delighted with the results across the college's 38 A-level subjects, it was particularly impressive that a significant number of subject areas achieved 100% high grades (grades A* to B).

The college also achieved a 100% pass rate for BTEC Advanced Level Extended Diplomas with 95% of these at distinction grade or above.

Principal Adele Wills said now is the:- "best time ever" to study at KGV, adding:- "We have a fresh focus on excellence. We have made dynamic changes across the college to ensure we're providing the best education for our students. We value our students and work with them to build their futures."
