Another good day on Granham Hill as St John’s Marlborough Year 11 students went into school to collect their GCSE and BTEC course results.
Ian Tucker, Executive Principal at St John’s said: “I am very proud to be able to share the results of our students who once again have shown us just how strong and determined they are.
The results they are taking away with them today are forged out of hard work, determination and an amazing ability to adapt to the uncertainty that two years of the COVID-19 pandemic has created.
They are without doubt a very special group of young people and they have the brightest of futures ahead of them. On behalf of everyone who has been involved in supporting and guiding these students throughout their education, I would like to wish them every success and for them to go onto their next steps with a confidence that reminds them that they can cope with anything. They are a truly inspirational year group.”
St John’s is proud of all its students’ achievements. Notable successes include: Holly Owen and Doug Rogan Rea who both achieved a truly outstanding set of top Grade 9’s in every subject they took.
Forty five students achieved at least eight grades 7 – 9, with the best performers including Daisy Cantellow, Timon Piercy, Maisie Allan, Ella Steele, Emma Blunden, Erin Cuthbert, Solal Vergara Costantini, Jack Ross, Rhys Evans, Isabella Tolley, Rosie Curry, Leonie Chamberlin-Medd, Izzie King and Frankie Sadler.
St John’s prides itself on delivering the very best outcomes for all its students, and we would like to thank the staff involved in teaching and supporting our students. The way that they have adapted so effectively and coped with lockdowns and COVID-19 protocols which have been thrown at them, often with very little notice, has been incredible.
Ian Tucker 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 students.
Their futures are bright and we look forward to welcoming many of them into our Sixth Form. We encourage all students to reach out to our Careers and Sixth Form guidance teams who will do everything they can to help you. For those students for whom this is truly goodbye, hold onto the St John’s values and all the very best in whatever next step you decide to take.”
