After a very difficult eighteen months or so of Covid and Lockdowns St John’s Marlborough today welcomed Year Thirteen students into school to collect the results of their A Level and BTEC courses.
Ian Tucker, Executive Principal at St John’s said: “No other group of students has had to manage the uncertainty around their results and futures, and everyone at St John’s is extremely proud of how much they have achieved.
Students receiving their results today have had both their Sixth Form years interrupted by the COVID-19 virus. They deserve to be known as the students who overcame real adversity throughout the pandemic – and this makes them a formidable force for the future.
With a pass rate of 100%, I am delighted for them all and I would like to thank all the staff who have taught, supported and guided these students.”
St John’s is proud of all its students’ achievements. Notable successes include: Miles Watson who achieved 5A* grades, Rowan Clarke (pictured above) who achieved 4As and a B, Will Gould and Lucy Steele who both achieved 4As, Ronak Patel, and Holly Westbury who all achieved 3As and an A, Zoe Athawes-Phelps, Emily Coplestone, Jess Davis, Jasmine Jackson, Lily Jackson, and Charlotte Walker who all achieved 3 As, Katie Haywood who achieved 2 As and 2 As, and Willa Lefevre who achieved Distinction at BTEC and 2 grade A’s at A level.
Executive Principal Ian Tucker was keen to stress how St John’s prides itself on delivering the very best outcomes for all its students, and teachers and support staff have had to adapt quickly to changes in the way grades have been awarded this year.
He also thanked those that had made these results possible – the staff. He added “Today’s outcomes are a result of excellent professionalism from St John’s teaching staff, whose assessments have been cross-checked by teachers from other institutions, and samples of evidence have been moderated by national exam boards. The many challenges thrown at students, staff, parents and carers over the last couple of years have not been easy to manage, and none of today’s achievements would have been possible without the resilience, flexibility and tireless efforts from all those who have supported these incredible students.”
