Cobham Free School announces second ever set of GCSE results in milestone year

The school, which opened with its first Year 7 pupils in 2014, is delighted to announce that its second ever set of results show a significant improvement on the previous year. This outcome aligns with the upward trajectory anticipated by the school as it becomes more established.

Of note, the number of pupils achieving grades 9 to 4 in both English and mathematics rose to 85% from 78% in 2019. 80% achieved 5 standard passes including English and mathematics, up from 70%.

Exam success at Kingston’s newest Outstanding school

Delighted pupils were invited to collect their results from 9.00am on 20th August and their hard work and efforts certainly paid off, despite the national changes to the way that GCSE results were derived this year as a result of school closures. While league tables have not been published this academic year, Year 11 pupils at the school achieved exceptional results, which, in ordinary circumstances, firmly places the school well above average compared to other schools both locally and nationally.

Given the government’s announcement about the removal of the publication of school level data, and the unique method of arriving at grades for students, Worcestershire County Council supported by Worcestershire Children First confirmed that they will not be collecting and publishing school level data this year. Holy Trinity as with other Worcestershire schools and colleges therefore will not be publishing individual school level data.
