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 a reduction in the top grades, we have maintained our best ever A* - B pass rate ensuring students guarantee their dream university placements. In addition the stretch and challenge of the Extended Project Qualification has been highly effective with students once again achieving outstanding results in this demanding qualification.
Once again, our Level 3 vocational BTEC students have maintained the exceptional Coombe attainment record in these reformed, challenging qualifications with over 80% achieving the highest grades of Distinction */ Distinction.
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!"
