Top Marks for Coombe Boys'
Building on a consistently strong and steady upward trend in academic performance Coombe Boys’ Year 11 pupils and staff are once again celebrating a year of excellent GCSE results.
Students taking the EBACC combination of subjects have seen a dramatic increase in their levels of progress whilst the school’s overall results remain significantly above the national average.
The school was delighted to see over 12% of boys achieve the new Grade 9 (A**) in Mathematics, Music and Physics, three times the national standard.
Many boys swept the board with straight A, A*& A** grades. Among the top achievers are Louis Schofield Sinden who achieved a Grade 9 (A**) in eight subjects and 1 A*, James Kluver who was awarded a Grade 9 (A**) in seven subjects and 1A*, Matthew Eldridge achieved a Grade 9(A**) in six subjects and x2 Grade 8s, Jacob Timmins awarded Grade 9s in five subjects, x3 Grades 8s and x2 Grade 7s and Aniscaan Shanthakumar achieving Grade 9s in four subjects, x3 Grade 8s and 2A*s
We are also thrilled to report two of our Year 11 boys will be moving on to represent their countries on the International Football stage after securing a healthy set of GCSE results. Fabio De Carvalho will be representing England whilst Conner Mcavoy will be playing for Scotland. We wish them all the best.
Mr David Smith, Headteacher of Coombe Boys’ School, said
“We are proud of all our Year 11 boys’ many successes. It is wonderful to have this confirmation of the outstanding work undertaken by staff and students at the school. The trend set at Post 16 has been replicated in the GCSE results with high numbers of students achieving the top grades and students performing exceptionally well in Mathematics and Physics. It is fantastic to see so many of our talented and highly-motivated boys in such a strong position to be successful in the next stage of their academic careers at the Coombe Sixth Form. We recognise these results continue to lay a firm foundation for the school’s future.”
