The resilience and determination of John Kyle Highschool GCSE pupils, who had to study and work through the lockdowns and restirctions of the pandemic, was brought to a close as year 11 pupils opened their results.
There are so many individual and group successes to celebrate, the following are just a few whole-school highlights: 73 per cent of students achieved grade 4 or above in both English and maths, this is equivalent to the old grade C so an important benchmark for the students. 12 per cent of all GCSE grades were top grades (8 or 9). Results across the school indicate significantly positive progress showing that students have exceeded national expectations.
Headteacher Mark Burton said: “I am delighted that so many students have excelled, it has been a great morning for our school community. Well done to the students and parents and carers for their determination and huge thanks to an amazing team of teachers and support staff who have guided them through these challenging times. Students and staff should be immensely proud of these results.”
School staff are happy with the number of students signing up for JKHS’s sixth form but are also pleased to have helped so many students on their journey to vocational courses in agriculture, health and social care, early years, sport, and apprenticeships.
