Our A level results this year showed how top pupils at Colfe's excelled themselves with 20% of the cohort gaining at least three A grades and securing their places at top universities ahead of the tuition fees increase next year. 71% of all results were graded A* to B, a significant improvement on last year. History A-Level was the top performing subject at Colfe's this year with 95% of candidates gaining a B grade or better.
Colfe's pupils celebrated outstanding GCSE results this year with 15% of the cohort gaining all A*/A grades. Girls outperformed boys with 57% of subjects taken by girls gaining the top grades. Eleven Year 10 pupils gained an A* in French a year early- an outstanding result.
Headmaster Richard Russell paid tribute to the efforts of staff and pupils alike: "I am delighted for the staff and pupils who have worked so hard to achieve these outstanding results. For many of our A Level students, this has meant places at the best universities in the country in a year of unprecedented competition.
“On the basis of our GCSE results, our pupils will be in the running for places at top universities in two years' time. I was also thrilled by the success of our Lewisham partner school, Conisborough College, which has achieved its best ever GCSE results. We’ve now welcomed two of Conisborough’s best students into the sixth-form where they are settling in well.”
