Coombe Boys’ School & Sixth Form

Examination Results Report 2015

 

RESULTS SUMMARY

We are very proud of our KS3, GCSE, A level & BTEC results. At GCSE level we saw a higher number than ever before achieving A/A*, with a quarter of all examination entries achieving this grade. Many students achieved straight A/A*s in all examinations and 11% of the cohort achieved 8 or more A/A* grades. At A’ level the results continue to demonstrate above national average progression enabling our students to gain places at their first choice universities. In our level 3 BTECs 83% of students achieved the equivalent of two A/A* grades.  Excellent KS3 results mean that when we look to the future we are expecting even greater achievements.

SIXTH FORM RESULTS 

Jubilant Sixth Form students celebrated another record breaking year at the nationally acclaimed Coombe Sixth Form.

 

 
 
 

Coombe Sixth Form’s results once again remain strong in a climate of turbulence and uncertainty; a reflection of the hard work, dedication and outstanding commitment demonstrated by our students and of the consistent, outstanding quality of teaching.

Overall, we have maintained the A*/A percentage pass rate across the Coombe Sixth Form which is a remarkable achievement. In the core facilitating subjects over 20% of entries were graded A*/A in maths, further maths, French, German and history as well as media and drama.

2015 has seen our highest ever average point score per student with an increase of 10 points, as well as the best ever % of A*-C passes at 75%. This has enabled more students than ever to gain places at the top universities. Amongst our high achievers were Anjali Gohil with 3 A*s who is looking forward to studying medicine at King's College and Coombe ex-Head Girl Bethany Downey with 2 A*s and 1 A who will now read Law at Cambridge. Where she will meet up with several ex Coombe students including Alex Mackie (ex -Coombe Boys’ School & Coombe Sixth Form) who is also reading Law.

We are equally proud of the incredible achievements of the Level 3 vocational students at the College Gardens campus – for whom 83% of passes were graded the equivalent of A*/A.

YEAR 11 RESULTS

Coombe Year 11 students celebrated stellar performances with record numbers achieving top A / A* grades.  

 

 
 
 
 

Students achieved above national average results for boys in almost all subjects and most notably in Mathematics and English Literature. Modern Foreign Languages saw the biggest improvement in results, where students achieved 10% above national average in French and 15% above national average in German. We were also very proud of our Additional Mathematics results with 80% of students receiving the A* distinction award.

Asad Ali was the school’s top performer this year with 11A/A* grades. 10% of the cohort achieved 8 A/A*s or more. These excellent results reflect the school’s accreditation with the NACE award (National Association of Able Children in Education) and demonstrates the expertise that has been developed within the school to provide the appropriate level of challenge and support for these talented learners.
