Students shine on GCSE results day! 

 

Another outstanding year for GCSE results at St John Bosco Arts College.

We are celebrating yet another successful GCSE results day.

Year 11 students attained fantastic results, with many students achieving their target grades in both English and mathematics.

This year saw the introduction of a new grading system for English language, English Literature and mathematics.These subjects are now graded 9 to 1, with 9 being the top grade and 4 being the standard pass rate (equivalent to a grade C).

Students can now progress into the sixth form or pursue a number of alternative education and work options.

Headteacher Darren Gidman, says: “I am very proud of all our students, who have worked tirelessly alongside staff, and with the support of parents and carers.”

“While some grades look a little different today, with the introduction of the new 9-1 grading system, what’s not changed is our students’ great achievements which will propel them to exciting careers and further education.”

“Many students have achieved excellent results, but a special mention goes to Ayesha Jamal who achieved 9 GCSEs at the highest 9-7 / A*-A grades, including a coveted grade 9 in Mathematics. Caitlin Gore and Erin Scullin achieved 8 GCSEs each at the highest 9-7 / A*-A grades, including grade 9s in English Literature.”

“I congratulate all our students and wish them every success in their next pursuit!”
