Another Year of Outstanding results
I would like to offer congratulations to all year 11 students on behalf of myself and all the staff at John Hanson for another year of outstanding examination results.
64% of students gained a grade 4 or above in English and Maths – an increase of 4% on last year. This is a significant achievement when you take in to consideration that this year students have sat new qualifications in English and Maths (graded from 9-1), with more challenging content and a different assessment system.
80% of students achieved a grade 4 or above in English while 68% achieved this threshold in Maths. In Maths five students managed to achieve the new grade 9 which is above the standard of an A*. 21 students achieved 3 or more A*/A grades
Other notable subject achievements:
In all of the following subjects well over 90% of the students gained a C grade or better – Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French, GCSE Physical Education and BTec Sport.
Also 80% of all students achieved 2 Science GCSE grades at C or above. This is 16% above last years national average and 84% achieved a Language GCSE grade at C or above which is 14% above last years national average.
Examination results however are about individuals and the life chances their achievements offer to them. That is why I could not be more proud of vast array of individual success that this year’s results have brought about.
I would have liked to mention every student and shared their success, but there are too many to mention by name. However the following have achieved exceptional outcomes – George Copping, Tom Hewson,Tom Morton, James O/Connor, Ellen Hemming, Josh Sebon, Zoe Grimison and William Day. Between them they have gained 73 GCSE grades at A or higher, including 7 Grade 9s and 27 A*s!
I am sure that armed with some amazing results John Hanson students will progress with confidence on to the next step in their educational journey. All of us at John Hanson wish them well.
