Results Summary

Our 2017 examination results were exceptional and have broken all records! 

At GCSE, our students rose to the challenge of changes to course content and the new system of numerical grading in English and mathematics introduced this year. 

Exceptional results include: 87% of our students achieved the new government demanding threshold in English and Maths, with more than 40% of the students achieving the numerical grade 7 or higher which equates to A/A*.

An outstanding 11% of all Coombe students achieved the new grade 9, designed nationally to recognise the very highest performing students. This outstanding success is replicated across all our subjects. 

Coombe Sixth Form results soar as students deliver exceptional performances.   Relishing the challenge of new and more rigorous examinations for 2017, Coombe Sixth Form students responded with a first-rate performance with 36% achieving A*/A, the highest ever, and almost two thirds of all entries graded A*-B.   These are truly amazing results across the board. 

Results at A*/A were particularly high, exceeding the national figure by as much as 33%, in art, classical civilisation, design technology, drama, English literature, mathematics, physics, psychology, religious studies and physical education studies.  These exceptional grades in a wide range of subjects stem from the broad and balanced curriculum taught in the earlier years at Coombe.
