Key Stage 5 (A level) Results

2015:  37% of all grades were either an A* or A, and well over a third of all students achieved 2As or more. A quarter of students achieved AAA or better, and 17% of all grades were A*.  For the second year running, our ALPS score for adding value at A level was Grade 2, representing “Outstanding overall performance”.

2016:  For the second year running 38% of all grades were either an A* or A, and two-thirds of grades were at B or above, achieved by 23 students who came to our 6th form from previous schools.  Two JCoSS students will take up places at Medical School this year, and one will take up a place at Cambridge; the great majority of students who applied for university places have comfortably met either their firm or insurance offers.
