We are pleased to report some outstanding achievements by its students in their A levels and other qualifications this summer.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
The school is delighted that 33% of students achieved the coveted three or more A*/A at A Level.
The vast majority of our students have secured their first choice of destination, whether that be university or apprenticeship and students attending our partner performing arts school in Hitchin, Emil Dale Academy, are also celebrating, with destinations including some of the top musical theatre schools in the country (Arts Ed, Bird, Mountview, Urdang or Guildhall).

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, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year. Supported by their parents and their extremely dedicated, inspirational teachers, our students have worked with great determination to exceed our expectations. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress onto further education and study, and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.”
This has been a tough year for both students and teachers, 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.”
