Outstanding GCSE results for Colfe’s pupils
Colfe’s received an outstanding set of GCSE results today, with 63% of pupils securing the top 9-8 grades. Despite reports of a national drop in grades 7 and above nationally, over 80% of grades achieved by Colfe’s pupils were 7/8/9, by far the highest proportion in the history of the school.
Six pupils – Emily, Amelia, Amarachi, Joshua, Katie and Eleanor – secured straight grade 9s, with a total of 67 grade 9s between them.
Emily, who achieved 12 grade 9s said “I still can’t believe it. I’m in shock but really happy. I’ve loved my time at Colfe’s – the teachers are so lovely and supportive.” Joshua commented “I’m really looking forward to studying Maths, History, Computer Science and Media at A-level and would like to do something related to computing at university.” Katie, who has been at Colfe’s since nursery, said “Seeing my results on paper was just amazing. I’m going to be studying French, Spanish, Latin and Politics at A-level next year.”
Headmaster Richard Russell said: “Building on last week’s fantastic success at A-level, these outstanding GCSE results confirm how successfully Colfe’s has weathered the storm of the pandemic. Our Year 11 pupils have surpassed expectations, a reflection of the strength of character that they have shown over the last two years. Their teachers have been equally determined, providing support and direction in person and online, as dictated by circumstance. We could not be more delighted.”
