A level results 2020

‘This is a very special generation of students who have encountered significant disruption to the end of their time at JCG as a result of the lockdown. They were not able to sit the exams they had worked so hard for and did not receive those important events and moments which mark the leaving of a place they love. At every stage, we have been so impressed by their resilience, positive attitude and determination to support each other, their College and the island community.

I would like to thank our staff who worked so diligently throughout the past two years and who worked so hard to collate the information required by the exam boards. This data was then standardised according to an algorithmic model devised by OfQual to produce final grades.

I would also like to thank our parents who have supported, encouraged and worked in partnership with us. This is a hugely important day for them too and I know how anxious they will have been.

As a College, we are delighted that we continue to see a year upon year increase in our results especially at the top range of A*-A and A*-B. This continued increase reflects the dedication, strong relationships, care and skill of our students and staff and the ‘believe you can’ culture of our College.

It is so important to remember that these excellent exam results achieved during the most challenging year of our lives are but one measure of someone’s education and while they will open doors to incredible future opportunities, a grade cannot and must never define a person. We are so proud and inspired by our students to excel not just academically but far more importantly as thoughtful, accomplished, courageous and kind human beings.’

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 1% of all UK schools.

GCSE Results

GCSE Results 2020

‘Following the UK’s Government and Ofqual’s debacle over the A level results last week, I am relieved and pleased that our Year 11 students have received their official grades today based on the centre assessed grade. While imperfect, it is the fairest outcome and reflects the trajectory our students were on had the exams gone ahead and for which they were thoroughly prepared 

We are so proud of our students and their achievements, so appreciative of the talents and care of our staff and deeply thankful to the support of their parents throughout the past two years of study. This is a very capable and resilient generation of young women and the very high level of success they have achieved is reflective not only of their ability but also their work ethic during the course, their ambition and their support of one another.’  

Notable Achievements

  • 70.2% of all grades were A* or A or 9, 8 or 7.
  • The average set of grades is 10 GCSEs at grade 7.
  • 100% students gained 5 or more C/4 and above
  • 28.9% students gained all A/7 or above
  • 71.1% students gained 5 or more A/7 grades
  • 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 19.2% of all grades were at this very highest level
