More students than ever achieve straight As at JCG.

24th August 2018

Carl Howarth, Principal, stated, ‘Through hard work, aspiration and strong teaching our students have secured an exceptionally high level of success.  This is the first year of Numbers rather than Letter grades in a wide range of subjects.  65.6% of all grades were A* or A (or grades 9, 8 or 7) with 72.2% of all our students achieving 5 or more A* or A grades.  Over a third of students gained 10 or more A* or A grades or their number equivalent.  A grade 9 is above the old style A* grade and is reflective of the top 3% of attainment across the country.  We are delighted that 45 students gained at least one of the top grade 9’s (41.7% of students). 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.  This positive difference is the value that they, their teachers, their families and the College as a whole have added to their education and we are so proud of them. In addition to the superb level of attainment at A level last week, these results underline the depth of excellence and care at JCG.’​
