Bailiff’s Ukraine Appeal
Please help the students of JCG raise money for the people of UkraineRead More
Our students have inspired us all and we delight in their incredible success; we always knew that if they achieve what they are capable of achieving they will astound themselves and they have.
As with all aspects of life over the past 18 months, our students and staff have had to respond to an evolving assessment framework. I am inspired by the resilience, courage and determination of our students. The close partnership with their teachers has enabled them to thrive in the toughest of circumstances. I am equally indebted to our staff who displayed such great care and immense professionalism in working with a new system and using their good judgement to provide an accurate - and the fairest - assessment of each student’s performance.
Our students have shown true grit in overcoming obstacles and not diminishing their desire to be the very best person they can be. While their final year has been strange, I have no doubt that their experience will propel them onto the world’s stage with the confidence and the skills to navigate uncertainty in whatever guise and use their gifts to improve the lives of others.
Students: We are proud, so very proud of everything you have achieved. Congratulations on your superb results but more importantly on the remarkable people you are. We will miss you though know wherever you go and whatever you do, you will always be part of our JCG family.
Parents: Thank you for entrusting us with your daughter’s education and for being our partner surrounding her with belief, encouragement and possibly a little patience at times. I know you too will delight in her achievement today and the person she has become.
And to all our staff, once again, thank you. Thank you for stepping up so brilliantly in such times.
“Our students have absolutely excelled themselves not only academically but as remarkable and resilient young people. Their incredible tenacity through this turbulent year combined with our continuous and unfaltering belief in them has proven to be a potent recipe for their success.
It is important to remember that this is their first set of formal assessments. The confusion of lockdown meant that our students and staff had to dig deep and pivot quickly to new ways of doing things. Their shared approach and ultimate success of online learning was critical. This meant that no learning has been lost. Faced with a new format for assessment, our students and staff have shown great agility in overcoming any obstacles and have thrived. These stellar results clearly demonstrate the depth of care, belief and academic excellence; our students have shown what can be achieved with positivity in the face of adversity.
80% of all grades were at the highest range of Grades 9 – 7, with over one third of all grades being awarded Grade 9. The average set of grades was 5x Grade 8 and 5x Grade 7.
We are so proud of each of our students, staff and parents and the incredible partnership shown throughout this period. At times, life has been tough for each of us, and it was quite natural to doubt oneself. However, the support and kindness given to one another was instrumental in reaching these new heights of personal success. More than any grades, it is this achievement that inspires me most. You did it!"
