GCSE Success

This year the BBC reported a fall in the proportion of GCSEs awarded an A*-C grade, for the first time since the exams were introduced 24 years ago. However, at Central Foundation Boys’ School, students were, once again, celebrating a series of high achievements and fantastic results, bucking the national downturn.

This year’s national results show 69.4% of entries earned grades A*-C, compared with 69.8% last year. Whereas at Central Foundation Boys’ School students have achieved another set of outstanding GCSE results. 81% achieved 5 A* – C grades and 66% of students achieved at least 5 A* – C including Maths and English.

“We are delighted for the students, that their hard work and determination has rewarded so many of them with excellent GCSE results.”

Mr Brownhill, Head Teacher of Central Foundation Boys’ School

These results were supported by strong performances in English, Maths and Science. In Maths and English, 85% and 78% of students achieved grades between A* – C respectively. 68% of students achieved 2 GCSEs between A* – C in Science. It is also worth mentioning that within this impressive year group, there were some excellent individual success stories. For example, Mohamed Abdullahi achieved 12 GCSEs; with 3 A*s and 6 As.

Samir Sayah, juggles a busy extra-curricular schedule including, drama club, school productions and debating yet still achieved 11 GCSEs, 8 of which were graded A* or A.

Segun Kogbodoku (below right) is another great success story. Segun represents the school in the orchestra, choir and debating. He achieved 11 GCSEs including; 3 A*s and 8 As. Next year, he looks forward to studying, Economics, Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics, with a view to reading Chemical Engineering at university.

Kevin Wu (above left) achieved 11 GCSEs; with 9 A – A* grades. Next year he will be staying on at CFBS Sixth Form to study Graphics, Economics, Mathematics and Physics with a view to take a degree in Engineering, Architecture or Business.

We look forward to welcoming our GCSE students into Central Foundation Boys’ School Sixth Form. With such promising results we anticipate continued success in their chosen subjects.
