Exam success at Coleridge

Following record GCSE performance in 2016, Coleridge Community College has performed well again in 2017, in a context where the ‘new’ GCSEs are harder and the GCSE grading system has changed.
73% of students achieved a pass in English and 58% achieved a pass in Maths, with 53% of the students passing both English and Maths under the new grading system.   The school’s Attainment 8 score was 4.5, which means the average student result was between a Grade B and a Grade C.
We are especially pleased that 7 students at Coleridge achieved an average result higher than a Grade 8.  We are also very pleased that over 10% of our Year 11s achieved a Grade 8 or above in English, and over 12% achieved a Grade 8 or above in Maths!
The highest-performing student at the school was Ben Norris, who achieved 2 Grade 9s, 1 Grade 8 and 7 A* grades in his 10 GCSE results – an extraordinary result and one that will, no doubt, bear comparison with the best results nationally!  Many other students did well, too, reflecting their hard work and commitment over many years.

Artsfest – A Night to Remember

With over 400 students taking part in108 acts over 8 stages, this year’s Artfest was a huge extravaganza which celebrated the talented students we have across the Federation.

 

From the excellent Year 11 GCSE Art exhibition, to a feast of monologues, duologues and devised pieces in drama. The Radegund Hall was rocking with the sound of African and samba drumming as well as a STOMP inspired performance. Dance incorporated wheelbarrows, wellies and shopping trolleys into their performances!  And Trumpington students donned the blue suits for a dance to a mash up of hits. While Year 7’s performed numbers from the hit musical Matilda in the auditorium. Over on the chill out stage, back lawn and quad there was an array of bands and solo artists performing covers as well as their own original compositions.

The night culminated in the Radegund  Hall with a funk fest from the Federation’s very own funk band which had staff, parents and students up on the dance floor. It certainly was a night to remember.

Paralympian Gold Medallist Louis Rolfe Visits Coleridge

Ex- Coleridge student and current Paralympian Gold medallist Louis Rolfe, was invited back to Coleridge Community College to present Sporting awards to Coleridge students whom have earned recognition for their sporting achievements.

Louis Rolfe gave out individual certificates and medals to 18 students across year 11 and year 9 who have shown commitment to sport over their time at Coleridge School.

The students were clearly inspired by Louis Rolfe’s presence; Andrew Neziri (Year 11),

“This morning has been an opportunity to reflect upon our achievements and appreciate the rewards of hard work, which Louis Rolfe epitomises”

Anna O Grady (Year 9), “It was really exciting to meet Louis Rolfe and to see his medals. I would love to be in the Olympics one day”

The school have decided to name a trophy after the student after his recent achievements, the trophy will now be called the ‘Louis Rolfe Sports Award’. This will be presented to one male and one female student at the end of the year covering the whole school.  Mr Dixon, Head of PE at Coleridge, believes this will create a legacy for generations to come and winning the Louis Rolfe Sports Awards will become the highest sporting achievements in the school as his name attached to the trophy embodies his values of determination, Inspiration, Excellence, Courage and Equality.

Finally Louis Rolfe said “It is amazing to have a trophy named after me. The thought of students winning the ‘Louis Rolfe’ sports awards in the future makes me feel very proud”

Coleridge Year 11 examination results 2016

Coleridge Year 11 students performed well on all 4 of the Government’s new key measures of school performance. The table below shows the significant improvement compared with 2015. Whilst still some way to go, the school is clearly on the right track.

National results for 2016 are not yet available

Government measure National result 2015 School result 2015 School result 2016
% of students achieving A*-C in both English and Maths 58 44 61
Progress 8* score 0 -0.2 +0.2
Attainment 8** score 4.8 4.2 4.9
% of students achieving the EBacc*** 24 18 30

 

*Progress 8 score measures how much progress each Year 11 student made in their best 8 qualifying subjects from the start of Year 7 to the end of Year 11, and calculates an average for the school. If on average all students have made the amount of progress they would have been expected to make, the school’s score would be 0 (zero). Schools will naturally aspire to achieve the highest possible positive score. The 2016 result shown is a provisional one, given to us by a national company called Go4Schools, based on their own very large database of schools.

**Attainment 8 score calculates the students’ average grade across their best 8 qualifying subjects, using the numeric grade scale 1-9, where 9 is the best score that could be attained.

***Ebacc is the percentage of Year 11 students that achieved a grade A*-C in all of English, Maths, Science, History or Geography and a modern language (at Coleridge, usually French).
