The whole school community is celebrating the exceptional achievement of our amazing students in this year’s GCSE and BTEC results. We are delighted that the hard work, determination and resilience of our students has been rewarded with such a pleasing set of results.

Pass rates in English and Mathematics are the highest the school has ever achieved, including in the government’s tougher measure of the Grade 5 ‘Good Pass’, which 52% achieved in both English and Mathematics. The number of students achieving a Grade 4 ‘Standard Pass’ in both subjects also rose to the highest ever at 78%. 

Across a wide range of subjects our students have achieved some phenomenal grades. All subjects are now being taken in the new GCSE or BTEC format, with the removal of coursework for most subjects and a tougher examination series. It is in this context that we are thrilled with our students’ achievement. In Science almost half of the students achieved 2 sciences at Grade 5. Students studying Spanish performed very well with 75% achieving a Grade 4 and almost half of the 128 students studying Geography achieved a Grade 5.  We also saw dramatic improvements in expressive arts subjects such as Music, Product Design and PE.

Our continued work on increasing the number of students achieving the highest grades of 7-9 has led to an increase in these grades, both in subjects such as Computing (35%), Music (25%) and Art (18%) and individuals, including those students celebrated below.  We are also very proud of our BTEC results with an amazing 57% of students achieving a Distinction or better in Sport and 33% of students achieving these grades in Health and Social Care; this is despite very recent changes to grade boundaries which has affected a number of students’ results in this subject.

Headteacher Ian Smith-Childs commented, ‘We are very proud of the students in this year group. They have been a wonderful year group throughout their time at The Coleshill School and have quite rightly achieved some fantastic results. Well done to all our students and thank you to our amazing staff.’

The school now looks forward to working with many of these students, as they start the next steps in their journey, in our Sixth form.  For all those students who are moving on to other education providers or work based apprenticeships, all the staff at The Coleshill School wish you every success and happiness in your future. This is and always will be your school.

SIMON MIESEGAES, HIGH SHERIFF OF WARWICKSHIRE’S 2020 CHALLENGE

On  Monday 30th September 2019, Simon Miesegaes, High Sheriff of Warwickshire visited The Coleshill School.   Simon gave a presentation to over 200 Year 11 students in an assembly informing them about his role as Sheriff and what it involves.

One of the focuses was on the 3 Point Challenge which involves:

High Sheriff “Unsung Heroes” Awards in March 2020; Warwickshire Crime beat; and Kissing it Better Charity.

The role of the High Sheriff is to support people in protecting and promoting law and order in the County with particular reference to the Police, Ambulance, Fire Service and Armed Forces (Simon is a Reservist with 4624 Squadron at RAF Brize Norton).

Following the assembly, Simon Miesagaes and Adam Richardson, Mayor of Coleshill enjoyed a tour of the school with Ian Smith-Childs, Headteacher and met with some of the students and staff.

 Simon Miesegaes commented “It was a privilege to visit Coleshill – it is now for the School to find me two “unsung heroes” (a student and member of staff) for a High Sheriff Award – and from what I saw my visit, that is not going to be easy because everyone I met could be in the category!  I very much hope too that the School will be in contact with www.kissingitbetter.co.uk which provides “work experience for the young at the same time and making the “sun shine” in hospital wards and care homes”. It was the most enjoyable day – my thanks to Ian Smith-Childs, Head Teacher, and all the staff who made it possible - Coleshill is a credit to Warwickshire education.”

We are delighted to announce an excellent set of A Level and Level 3 BTEC results, across a wide range of courses, at The Coleshill School.  These results reflect the comprehensive nature of our Sixth Form with students achieving A*s at A Level and Distinction* in a range of Level 3 BTECs.  In a year of significant growth within our Sixth Form, the whole school community can take pride in these results.

This year our Sixth Form numbers have more than doubled and we are therefore pleased to see an improvement in almost every measure being achieved by our students. The percentage of students achieving the A*/A or Distinction*/Distinction was 22% with almost half of all grades achieved were between A*/Distinction* and B/Merit*. 

As a comprehensive Sixth Form we offer a range of applied courses, alongside our A Level pathway.  This enables students to study Health and Social Care, Computing, Applied Science and Sport. Students have performed exceptionally well in these subjects and are well placed for further education or employment in these fields.

Headteacher, Ian Smith-Childs commented ‘We are very proud of our students and the whole school community. This year our Sixth Form has grown significantly, so it is particularly pleasing to see the improvements in results match our ambition to provide an excellent Sixth Form for our students’.

We have been proud to be partnered with the Deon Burton Football Academy over the last two years, which has seen our students achieve an exceptional level of success both in their studies and on the football pitch. The two teams finished 7th and 2nd in their leagues, with 2 boys making the All Star Team of the Season and one student winning the Golden Boot with 24 goals.  Students have gained some very pleasing grades in the Level 3 Sports Diploma and are going onto to positive destinations.   

These results have given our students the best chance for the next stage in their education or employment. The majority of our students have gained places in their first choice universities or colleges, with around 30% attending Russell Group universities, including Bath, Warwick and Bristol; this year students with A* grades have applied for some of the most competitive courses in the country. Several students have secured quality apprenticeships, whilst some students are taking a gap year and applying for university starting in 2020. A few students have gone into full time employment. We wish all of our students the very best of luck in this next exciting phase of their lives and remind them that The Coleshill School is their school and they are always welcome to return.  

We are very proud of all of our students and note some outstanding performers below:
