A level Results

Effort, perseverance and ambition combined with the great support and care of their teachers and parents, enabled our students to excel not just academically but far more importantly as thoughtful, accomplished, courageous and kind human beings. These excellent exam results are but one measure of someone’s education and while they will open doors to incredible future opportunities, a grade can never define a person. Grades can neither reflect the excellent progress our students have made throughout their time at JCG.  

46.6% of our grades were at the very top band of A* or A with 92.3% of all grades at A* – C.

We are also delighted that the strategies our students and staff have been pursuing has increased our A* and A grades by 13% over the last four years. We believe with care, expert guidance and belief, all our students can do well and our students are showing this to be true at JCG.

How much progress did our students make?

We use a measure of progress called ALPs which compares the performance of our students against every other school in the UK. 

In addition to being the highest achieving school in the Channel Islands, it is a testament to our students and staff that the progress our students made places JCG within the top 12% of all UK schools.

A* – A grade = 46.6%

GCSE Results

Our students worked so hard in partnership with their teachers and demonstrated such ambition and determination to achieve these excellent grades. While people may be interested in the headline figures, we are so proud of all our students and the progress they have made.

In addition to the superb level of attainment at A level, these results underline the strength of relationships, the importance of collaborative learning, the necessity to aspire and the personal care which when combined creates the ‘Believe you can’ culture at JCG.

Notable Achievements at GCSE

65.3% of all grades were A* or A or 9, 8 or 7.

65% of all our students achieved 5 or more A*/A or 9-7 grades with a third of students gaining 10 or more A*/A or 9-7 grades.

Highest percentage ever have achieved all A/7 or above = 32%.

A* – C / 9-4 grades = 96.1%
5x A* – C including English and Maths = 98.1%

Average set of grades: 6x 7, 3x 6, 1x 5 or 1x A*, 4x A and 5x B in old money

A grade 9 is above the old style A* grade and is reflective of the top 3% of attainment across the country. We are therefore delighted that 14% of all grades were at this very highest level with over 50% of students gaining at least one grade 9.
