Results go up…up..up at SJT

Students and staff at Sir John Talbot’s School in Whitchurch were ‘on cloud nine’ today as they received their first set of GCSE results as an Academy. Results at the school have continued to improve, with 100% of students gaining at least 5 GCSE passes, an increase of 11% on last year. The number of A* and A grades has also risen by 9%. Headteacher of Sir John Talbot’s School, David O’Toole, is “delighted” with the performance of Year 11 students.

Mr O’Toole commented, “I am delighted for our students today, as they celebrate their outstanding achievements. I am also thrilled for the staff who are dedicated and committed to providing the young people of Whitchurch and beyond with the highest possible standard of education. The curriculum studied by our students at GCSE is broad, balanced and yet academically demanding so these results are outstanding and, with a thriving sixth form here at SJT, we are looking forward to welcoming many of the students back to embark on A Level courses in September.”

He continued, “Still on a high from last week’s A Level results, today’s celebrations are a wonderful way to round off our first year as an Academy and what a fantastic year it has been.”

Individual notable performances are:

Sebastian Getkowski 2 A*, 5 A, 3 B, 2C

Jessica Furber 3 A*, 4 A, 4 B

Alisha Smith picked up her results this morning and commented, “We are grateful for the support we have had from our teachers. They put on lots of support sessions in the evenings and at weekends and even provided breakfast for us on the days of our exams. We knew exactly what we needed to do to get our target grades.”

Rebecca Rogers was thrilled with her results and commented, “The school has given us the courage to believe in ourselves. I am really pleased that it is all over and that all of the hard work has paid off.”
