Year 11 students at St Columba’s College in St Albans celebrated their GCSE results today.
Overall, the results at St Columba’s reflect the continued improved performance of the school over the last four years, with 62.6 per cent of all grades at 9—7 and 99.8 per cent of all grades at 9—4.
Ten students achieved all grade 9s and 8s, and four students achieved eleven grade 9s.
Headmaster David Buxton said: “Congratulations to all our students receiving their GCSE grades today.
“The results continue an upward trend for the College since 2018 but most importantly they reflect the hard work and adaptability of this cohort of students who have also had to display such high levels of resilience during the course of their GCSE studies.
“We look forward to welcoming them into Sixth Form next month.”
It has been an anxious time for GCSE students due to the cancellation of public exams and disruption caused by the pandemic.
Throughout lockdowns and periods of remote learning all students at St Columba’s College have been supported by a strong pastoral care and academic programme.
