Campbell is a ‘broad church’ academically – it always has been.  It is very revealing if these results are examined more closely.  If we consider the 39 boys who came to Campbell in 2008 with an ‘A’ grade in the Transfer Test, we see that 19 of these boys (49%) went on to achieve 7 or more A*/A Grades in their GCSE examinations.  Some 21% of all the GCSEs obtained by this group were awarded A* grades, whilst 60% of all their grades were awarded A* or A grades.  This compares favourably with any school in the country and shows clearly how well this calibre of student is enabled to fulfil their potential at Campbell.

What about those boys who did not perform so strongly at Transfer in 2008, and for whom Campbell represented a ‘second chance’?  By way of example, 27 students arrived at the College in 2008 with C1 grades at Transfer.  We are pleased to note that 82% of all the GCSEs taken by this cohort were awarded A*-C Grades, and that 23 of these boys (85%) went on to achieve the benchmark of 5 A*-C GCSE Grades including English and Mathematics.

The two tables below summarise this.
