Colfe’s Scholars Success 2021

Colfe’s School celebrates Leathersellers’ Scholars success

Colfe’s students and staff are celebrating A-Level success after two years of uncertainty and disruption. Over 80% of students achieved places at their first choice university, including Russell Group, with a record number – ten in total – heading to Oxford or Cambridge.

We were pleased to see the success of the Leathersellers’ Scholars, three of whom are heading to Oxford or Cambridge.

Aleesha Bruce, Leathersellers’ Scholar and School Captain – who joined Colfe’s from Prendergast Ladywell – achieved A*/A*/A and will read Economics at The London School of Economics. “It has been such a strange year but I will forever be grateful to Colfe’s for helping me get to the destination that was right for me. It’s funny to think I didn’t even know what Economics was before I joined and now I have an A* in the subject and I am off to study it at one of the best places in the world. I couldn’t be happier”.

Headmaster Richard Russell said “Our candidates have performed remarkably well against a background of perpetual uncertainty. The strength of their stoicism and resilience cannot be overstated. This is equally true of their teachers who have dealt with the shifting sands of Covid with smiling fortitude over the last 18 months. The class of 2021 have pointed the way for future generations magnificently. We look forward to hearing of their future success.”
