Examination results - 2016

GCSE 2016

GCSE results at Colfe’s this year have leapt ahead of the school’s previous record.  A*/A grades are up by ten percentage points, to 62%.  And this in a year when the proportion of top grades awarded nationally has actually gone down.

Physics and Latin were the top-performing subjects with 94% and 83% A*/A respectively.  Mathematics was once again amongst the top performers with 75% A*/A.

Headmaster Richard Russell was delighted.  “These results constitute a real step change for the school.  We changed the reporting system this year to focus much more sharply on effort and how hard pupils were working.  It has clearly paid off, especially for the boys.  With such a high proportion of pupils gaining so many top grades, the prospect for A-level in two years’ time is exciting. Teachers and pupils have much to celebrate, and I congratulate them all on this highly successful outcome.”

A Level 2016

For a third year in a row, A Level results have topped the 80% mark for A*/B with all six of our pupils who applied to read Medicine (a notoriously competitive subject) successfully gaining a place. Over 60% of Year 13 gained places at prestigious Russell Group Universities (up from last year) and Oxbridge success included places for Modern Languages and Medicine. Amongst the many success stories this year, Olivia Carruthers-Jones gained three A* grades and will shortly depart for Cambridge to read Modern Languages. Andrew Ravendren, who joined Colfe’s in the Sixth Form from Conisborough College as a Leathersellers’ Scholar, will read Medicine at Imperial College, London.
