There was plenty of happy faces at St John Bosco Arts College this morning [22 August] after students collected their GCSE results.
Once again, Year 11 students achieved fantastic results, with many achieving the top grades of 9-7 in English, mathematics and science. The overall pass rate for English and mathematics combined was 59% at grades 9-4 (A*-C equivalent).
There were many students who achieved outstanding results across a number of subjects. Of particular note was Milli Grier, who achieved 8 grades at 9-7, including 2 grade 9s in mathematics and science.
Over 75 students will now progress into the college’s sixth form, whilst others will pursue alternative education and work options.
Headteacher Darren Gidman, said
: “St John Bosco Arts College was a hive of activity this morning as we welcomed back our Year 11 students. The results have been brilliant and we are all extremely proud of their achievements.
“Everyone has worked incredibly hard this year, not just our students, but also the teaching and office staff who work tirelessly to make the college a positive, caring learning environment.”
“I wish all of our students every success in the next chapter of their lives!”
