In the first set of results to include the new, reformed GCSEs in all subjects, Central Foundation Boys’ School students are celebrating their excellent exam outcomes.

The School is very proud of the achievement of all of the students in the GCSEs.  The students scored a record number of top grades, with 33% of all grades being at grades 7 to 9.  In addition, 63% of students achieved a grade 5 or better in both English and Maths.

In English Language and Literature, 89% of the students achieved a grade 4 or above with 31% achieving grade 7, 8 or 9.  In Maths, 82% of the students achieved a grade 4 or above with 36% of the whole cohort achieving grade 7, 8 or 9.   Science continued to perform strongly with 82% of students achieving at least a grade 4 and 41% achieving a grade 7, 8 or 9. This exceptional student performance continued across the breadth of the curriculum with EBacc subjects performing particularly well including Computing (100% at 4-9), French (100%), Spanish (100%) and Geography (84%). ICT results were once again outstanding with grades 4-9 at 100%. The creative faculty was well represented with Art (89%), Drama (90%) and Music (94%) all scoring very well.

Headteacher Jamie Brownhill said, “The new reformed GCSEs have presented many new challenges for both students and teachers and they are all to be congratulated for the results they have achieved.  We wish all of our students well as they move onto the next stage of their education.”

Central Foundation Boys’ School is celebrating their students’ excellent achievements across both A-level and vocational subjects. The pass rate was 99%, with 83% of grades at A* to C, 52% at A* to B, and 29% at A* or A.

These results have allowed the students to access many of the UK’s top universities, including its highest ever number to Russell Group institutions. Students will be attending UCL, King’s College London, Imperial, Warwick, Manchester and Edinburgh. The School continues to be an excellent provider for students to study STEM subjects at university, including Medicine, Mathematics, Chemistry, and Engineering. The School has also seen considerable success for students studying humanities and arts. These courses include Law, Architecture, History, Economics, Interior Design and Fashion.

Vocational subjects were again, very successful. 89% of grades were at Merit or above, equivalent to a C or above at A-level with 68% of all grades at Distinction or Distinction*, equivalent to an A or A* at A-level.

These results have secured the students exceptional university destinations, employment or apprenticeship opportunities. Some of their courses and destinations include Architecture at the University of Manchester, Diagnostic Radiography at St George’s, and Business Management at the University of Surrey. Other students are taking up apprenticeship opportunities.

All Year 13s were supported in their university and apprenticeship applications by Central Futures, a dedicated team of professionals who assist students in securing a place in higher education, apprenticeship or employment upon leaving school. Central Futures work with ‘The Key Project’, a partnership between the school, the international law firm Slaughter and May, and The Access Project charity. The students are provided with one- to-one tutoring for their subjects and are supported in the application process throughout the academic year.

Headteacher Jamie Brownhill said, “We are delighted with the students’ exam outcomes and the university and apprenticeship placements they have secured. These are the result of the hard work of the students and the support they have received from our skilled and committed group of teachers”

Congratulations and well done to four of our Sixth Form students who have managed to reach their goal and raise a whopping £1000 for Royal Trinity Hospice, a wonderful charity that give palliative care for patients and their loved ones in London. The students worked incredibly hard organising a raffle and liaising with local businesses to give away some great prizes to lucky students and staff. Well done girls!

Dreamy melodies drift from the hall and the faint smell of paint fills our corridors… CFBS students are preparing for our Summer Concert and Art & Tech Exhibition on Thursday 18th July. Family, friends and students are all invited to come and celebrate our talented and creative students and their work this year. We can’t wait to see you there!

Exhibition at 5pm, Concert at 6pm.

Our sixth formers are raising money with a raffle for Royal Trinity Hospice, a wonderful charity that gives palliative care for patients and their loved ones in London.
