Concord placed third in Sunday Times Schools Guide

Monday November 27, 2017

Concord has been placed third in The Sunday Times Schools Guide, Parent Power, published at the weekend, where schools were ranked according to their combined A level and GCSE results by region. The rankings in the secondary schools league table in the guide are determined by the percentage of examination entries gaining A* to B grades at A level this summer and the percentage of entries returning A* and A grades at GCSE. Concord, the guide also pointed out, ‘has the best A level results of any school in the West Midlands with 97.1% of all A levels achieving A*, A or B grades.’ Said Concord Principal Neil Hawkins: “It is absolutely fantastic that the achievements of Concord’s students have been nationally recognised once again. “An enormous amount of individual hard work and talent on the part of our students has been combined with skilled support and wisdom on the part of our staff to make this possible. “We have many happy students, parents, teachers and even grandparents who are delighted with what has been achieved. Of course, these results are no more or less than a passport to the next stage in our students’ lives. “Just as important – but much harder to measure - are the values of harmony, trust and decency that facilitate all that we do and achieve here at Concord College.”
