Coombe Sixth Form is delighted to report another superb year of examination success at both A level & Level 3 vocational BTEC.

Coombe Sixth Form is delighted to report another superb year of examination success at both A level & Level 3 vocational BTEC.

The 2018 Year 13 students have continued the Sixth Form’s fantastic academic tradition despite the challenge of the new specifications and more challenging standards. We are proud of all our students for achieving these excellent grades and are now able to progress to the university course of their choice.  

Notable successes go to Suzie Azim with 2 A*s and 2 A grades who is heading to Oxford University to read Law. Farida Ben-Younis with 2 A*s and 3 A grades will be studying Maths and Modern languages at UCL. Thomas Jacques is embarking on a Law degree at Surrey University after achieving A*, 2As and B grades, Eliza Wade will be studying Medicine at Southampton. Anna Cole gained 2A*s and 2 A grades to secure her place to study International Relations at King’s College London. David Allen will be studying an Automotive Engineering degree at Surrey University after gaining a fantastic A*, 2As and B grades. This is just a small snapshot of the remarkable grades our students have achieved and what their next adventure will be.


The dedication of the students, staff and their families has resulted in the highest ever proportion of A*- C grades with a third of all entries graded A* or A overall and an array of Coombe graduates achieving these highest grades in each of their A Level subjects as well as the Applied Science BTEC course.

Each year, Coombe Sixth Formers achieve consistently outstanding results across all subjects and we couldn’t be more proud of them.

Director of Coombe Sixth Form, Ms Emily Barns, commented,

"I would like to congratulate everyone on their results. I am immensely proud to see such fantastic grades achieved by the Sixth Form once again. It is marvellous that the hard work and commitment of students have been rewarded with such exceptional outcomes across all subjects at Coombe.

It is particularly pleasing that, despite the many media reports concerning girls’ attainment in physics at A Level this summer, Coombe Sixth Form girls have bucked this national trend and excelled in their attainment in both maths and physics.

Once again, our Level 3 vocational BTEC students have maintained the exceptional Coombe attainment record in these qualifications with over 60% achieving the equivalent of A*/A.

All students have worked tremendously hard and I wish them the very best of luck in their future endeavours. A huge thank you must also go to all staff at Coombe Sixth Form who work tirelessly to ensure every student reaches his or her potential. Very well done to all!"

Congratulations Class of 2018!
