JCG students achieve highest ever GCSE pass rate

21st August 2014

Carl Howarth, Principal, stated, ‘We are delighted for our students, teachers and parents and congratulate them all upon the outstanding achievement at GCSE. Given the significant changes to the examination format, we are especially pleased that our students continue to increase the percentage of A* and A grades on previous years. What is equally impressive is that over a quarter of our students achieved A* or A grades in all their GCSEs with nearly two thirds of all students achieving at least 5 A* or A grades. Our A* – C pass rate is also the best the College has ever achieved. However, whilst these headline figures are very pleasing they don’t reveal the many individual successes. It is wonderful to see students who have aspired and worked so hard to significantly outperform their targets based on their CATs data. This positive difference is the value that they, their teachers and the College as a whole have added to their education and we are so proud of them.’
