Coleshill sixth formers going for gold!

The Coleshill School is proud to announce another record-breaking year for A Level and Vocational Diploma students, with 40% of examination entries being achieved at A*-B grades. This is the highest total in the school’s recent history and a further increase on last year’s results. These fantastic results are a reflection of the dedication of students and staff. The strength of these results will mean that students are well placed to go on and achieve their ambitions.

With a pass rate of 98 per cent, students have shown real determination and resilience to achieve their best.

Headteacher Ian Smith-Childs, said:

These students have embraced the Olympic spirit to “be the best you can be” and have worked tirelessly to ensure that their results reflect their potential. Like the medal tally from our amazing performers in Team GB these results are the culmination of years of hard work.  There was an immense sense of pride in the exam hall as students opened their envelopes to see all of their efforts rewarded.”

These examination results have been achieved across a wide range of subjects and at a time of curriculum and examination changes for many students. Some of the top performers are noted below, but the school congratulates all of its students and wish them well on the next step of their learning journey. All of the students have secured places either at a university of their choice, an apprenticeship or are starting in employment.
