Celebrations for Students at Colchester High School on Results Day 2018

Students from Colchester High School are celebrating excellent GCSE results today, with 87% of grades in all subjects, including Maths and English achieving a “good pass” at the new Grade 4+ and, more pleasingly, 68% of all grades achieving a “strong pass” at Grade 5+.

Top performers were Joe Cole and William Lodge, who both achieved the equivalent of 10 A*/A passes and George Pennyfather with 8.

We are particularly delighted with the overall number of grade 4+ across a range of subjects – the majority of which are the new reformed, more exacting qualifications which are taken at the end of KS4 with very little or no coursework and relying completely on the performance of the student on the day.

David Young, Head of Colchester High School, said: “It is a pleasure to celebrate with our staff and students who have worked so hard to achieve these results. My congratulations go to all of our GCSE students and I wish them every success as they take their next steps into A Levels and beyond.”
