St Columba’s GCSE results buck national trend

DESPITE gloomy grade percentages dominating the news bulletins yesterday (August, 23), St Columba’s College in St Albans posted its best ever GCSE grades in the schools history.

Pupils in Year 11 received outstanding results as more than 22 per cent of the attained grades were A*.

An impressive 16 per cent of students also gained six or more A* grades, and 15 of them earned A* and A grades across the board.

Edward Butler-Caddle had the best performance with eleven A*s, closely followed by Max Wilding who gained ten A* grades.

The schools’ good new comes following equally impressive A-level results last Thursday, when nearly 70 per cent of its students were awarded with A* to B grades.
