Staff at St John’s Marlborough today welcomed Year 13 students into school to collect the results of their A Level and BTEC courses.
A spokesperson for the school told Marlborough.news, “After an extremely turbulent three years, staff were proud to see that the students had performed incredibly well. St John’s has seen exceptionally strong outcomes, which not only speaks highly of the resilience of St John’s students, but also of the hard work and dedication of the staff and parents who supported them so effectively.”
A-levels are the first public exams that this cohort of students has taken as their GCSEs were cancelled due to the pandemic. Nationally A-level grades received today are lower than the past two years but remain higher than pre-pandemic levels.
Executive Principal, Ian Tucker said: “It was wonderful to see students able to celebrate with each other so openly this morning and we cannot praise them enough for the way they have come through such a challenging time. The future is so bright for the 198 students who set off today on an exciting next stage of their lives and every one of us at St John’s wishes them every success.
Without exception, we are proud of all the St John’s students who received their results today. With Oxford, Cambridge and other prestigious universities welcoming many of our highest achievers, and the overwhelming majority of our students gaining their first choice of university or apprenticeship, an exciting future lies ahead.”
