 Careers fair at John Hanson

img_1147On Thursday 6th October John Hanson community school hosted an extravaganza of a careers event for the Andover Secondary Schools.

Following on from previous successful  careers fairs, Lynn Richards, the schools Careers Advisor, and Anna Hall, Assistant Headteacher, decided this was too good an event for the other 15-16 year olds in the town to miss.  After a year of planning the day saw over 600 students from John Hanson, Harrow Way, Rookwood, Winton, The Andover Education Centre, Mark Way and Grateley House spend an hour each perusing the many stalls around the sports hall.



Summer 2016 GCSE Results

We offer our warm congratulations to John Hanson’s outgoing year 11 for another marvelous set of GCSE results.  Supported by teachers, families and friends they have collectively delivered the second best set of GCSE results in the school’s history.  They can be proud of their achievements.


Sharing the headline details:

  • 5A*-C with English and mathematics – 60%
  • English A*-C – 76%
  • Mathematics A*-C – 66%
  • 5A*-C – 70%

Of course, headlines are not as important as the many individual successes and achievements of our young people who strove and worked massively hard to get their personal best results.  John Hanson staff are renowned for going the extra mile in support of the young people and they are delighted to see how their students acquitted themselves.

It was good to see so many students come into school on Thursday to collect their results in person and we enjoyed sharing your accomplishments.  Among the top performers were Alex Griffiths & Rebecca Kelly with 9 A*/A grades and Aidan Bahrani, Josh Bowman Rosie Sloan with 7 A*/A grades


Mr Coombs, Headteacher commented, “As a year group your teachers and support staff enjoyed teaching you.  You worked hard both individually and together and I offer you my congratulations for the results.  On behalf of the school community I also offer my best wishes as you step out into the next phase of your lives whether you are studying A levels or BTECs at college, starting an apprenticeship, or going into some other form of training.  You did yourselves proud!”
