King’s students are continuing to impress, gaining top marks in the 2016 Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and earning some well-deserved Top in the World, Top in New Zealand and High Achievement awards across the various subjects offered at King’s.

19 of our CIE scholars were awarded top honours for their CIE examination results this evening at the 2016 Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards Dinner held at Eden Park.

Recent King’s College Old Collegians, Lewis James Herd (Marsden) and William Wang (Greenbank), as well as Year 13 student Rohith Vinod Pillai (Averill) have all received Top in the World awards for English Language (A Level), Thinking Skills (A Level) and Literature in English (AS Level) respectively.

William Wang was one of an exceptional group who gained multiple awards on the night including a Top in New Zealand for Chemistry.

The increasing level of High Achievement awards also highlight the diversity and array of subjects on offer at King’s, from Psychology to Marine Science to name but a few.

Headmaster Simon Lamb says these results are a testament to the hard work ethic of both staff and students at our College.

“This event is a fantastic celebration of student success across New Zealand and we are proud to be a part of it.”

“It is great to see King’s College’s top 2016 CIE scholars rewarded here tonight and recognised international and nationally for their hard work, motivation and dedication in their studies.”

Last year, more than one million students sat CIE examinations in more than 10,000 schools around the world including the United Kingdom, United States, China, India and Singapore, as well as throughout Europe, South America and the Middle East.

Top in the World awards are awarded to the learner who has achieved the highest standard mark in the world in an individual subject. Top in New Zealand awards are awarded to the learner who has achieved the highest standard mark in New Zealand in an individual subject. High Achievement awards are awarded to the learner who has achieved the highest standard mark in New Zealand in a less widely taken subject.
