GCSEs 2017: continued success at the Coleshill School

Talented year 11 students at the Coleshill School are celebrating “pleasing and positive” GCSE results today. Despite new challenging English and Mathematics qualifications, the school is continuing to maintain the high standards set in previous years, with notable performances both in subjects and by individuals.

Across English and Mathematics 60% of students achieved the standard pass, or grade 4.  This is broadly equivalent to the number of students achieving a C grade last year.  In Science, the school has achieved its best results for many years, with 71% of students achieving a C or above in two sciences. There were also strong results in a range of subjects, such as History, Drama and Spanish, where 88% of students achieved a C or above.

Headteacher Ian Smith-Childs said:

It is testament to the hard work of the students, staff, governors and wider school community that we have achieved such pleasing results in times of curriculum and examination reform. Our students have been so resilient throughout the year and deserve the positive results they have achieved.

We now look forward to welcoming the majority of our year 11 cohort into our sixth form, where they will have the opportunity to continue their studies with excellent teaching and pastoral care.  For those students who are moving on to colleges or apprenticeships, we wish them every success and remind them that this is, and always will be, their school.”
