30% of students earned at least 5 A or A* grades

Central Foundation Boys’ School students celebrated an outstanding set of GCSE results on Thursday 21st August. 84% of the students achieved 5 A* to Cs including English and Maths, an improvement on the impressive results last year which saw Central Foundation become the first school in Islington ever to pass the 80% mark of 5 A* to Cs including English and Maths, a figure only surpassed by four non-selective schools in the whole of the Greater London area in 2013.

The students achieved exceptional outcomes in the core subjects of Maths, English and Science. In Maths, 92% of the students achieved A* to C with 36% of the whole cohort achieving an A/A*. In English, 85% of the students achieved A* to C with 34% of the whole cohort achieving an A/A*. In the Sciences, 86% of students achieved A* to C with 38% of the grades at A/A*.

There was, however, exceptional student performance across the breadth of the curriculum as well as in the core subjects. In History, 42% of all grades were at A/A*; in French 30% of students achieved A/A*. The arts continued their exceptional performance; in Drama 100% of students achieved A* to C with 63% of them achieving an A/A*; in Music 95% of students achieved A* to C with 45% of grades at A*/A.

Our students continue to excel at Business and Computing. In Business 92% achieved A* to C and 40% A/A*; in Computing 95% of students achieved A* to C with 31% of grades at A/A*.

Students were overjoyed after months of waiting for results


There were exceptional performances by the majority of the students. 30% of the students achieved at least 5 A/A*s. These students included:-

Samuel Price who achieved 11 A*s.

Omar Adam and Taief Miah who both achieved 10 A*s and 2 As.

Apollinaire Lalouschek and Rayid Reza who both achieved 9 A*s and 3 As.

Jack Arnatt (8 A*s & 3 As), George Benson (7 A*s, 4 As, 1 B) and George Riley (7 A*s, 4 As, 1 B).

Atef Chowdhury achieved (5 A*s, 7 As, 1 B), Aiden Ha (2 A*s, 7 As, 4 Bs), Kit Kieran (4 A*s, 5 As, 1 B) and Ehssanullah Baghban (2 A*s, 9 As, 1 B).

This is an amazing set of outcomes for the students that show the results of hard work and aspiration of the pupils, combined with dedicated support from their teachers. Central Foundation believes every young person can be successful whatever their starting point or background and our results demonstrate that we have made this belief a reality. In September, many of our students will be joining our sixth form consortium, IC6, and we expect to see them knocking on the doors of the country’s top universities and employers in the next few years.
