GCSE 2014

GCSE pupils at Colfe’s have again broken records for top grades, with 55% attaining A or A*.

This is the third year in a row when the proportion of A/A* grades at GCSE has risen at Colfe’s

Girls outperformed boys this year: a remarkable 75% of all their grades were at A/A*. Latin was the top performing subject with 21 of the 23 pupils gaining A* or A.

Headmaster Richard Russell was delighted with the results: “This is real progress, when government ministers have been warning families to expect lower grades in 2014.  Fully 20 of our pupils achieved A* and A grades in every exam they took, which sets them on track for the top universities in two years’ time.”  

84% of GCSE exams were graded B or above, which is the school’s minimum qualification for entering the Sixth Form and following a path to higher education.  This too continues a three-year run of improving performance at Colfe’s.
