Outstanding GCSE results

St John’s is celebrating an outstanding set of GCSE results. Just under 30% of all grades were awarded at A* and nearly 66% were awarded at A* or A making these results the second strongest set of GCSE grades in the School’s history.

Pupils excelled across all subjects; in the core subjects of English language, mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics 37% of the grades awarded were at A*.

There were very many exceptional individual performances this year. A quarter of the year group achieved five A* grades or better and 18 pupils were awarded eight or more A* grades. Especial congratulations go to Jemima Clemett, Finlay Deuchar, Anna Graham, Jessica Laslett, Yvette Murphy, Harry Robinson and Matthew Thomas who all achieved 10 A* grades.

Catherine Perkins fully justified the award of Upper Fifth Dux of Year at Speech Day in June by achieving 11 A* grades. She commented: “I am so proud of us all. It just goes to show what you can achieve if you work really hard.”

The Headmaster, Martin Collier, commented: “We are delighted with these grades. I am grateful to the staff for their considerable efforts and congratulate the pupils on achieving such a strong set of results.”
