GCSE Results

We are delighted to announce another year of excellent GCSE results.  They continue the strong track record of success by our students who have faced such challenges over the 2 years of their GCSE courses.

This year, 81% of results are at Grade 5 and above (considered a ‘strong pass’) and 91% are at Grades 9-4 (the equivalent of an A*-C on the previous grading system). 45% of all results are at Grade 7 (A) or better, with 28% being at Grade 8 or 9 – the very highest grades.

More than a quarter of all students achieved at least 7 GCSEs at Grade 7 (A) or better. Among many outstanding individual performances are:

Pai Lustigman (9 Grade 9, 1 Grade 8, 1 Grade 7)

Headteacher, Dr Melanie Lee commented: ‘These are excellent results, achieved despite exceptional challenges during the most difficult years. The outcomes reflect the huge amount of work and utter dedication from both staff and students.

Our students should feel very proud today. With many individuals scoring top grades and others outperforming their own expectations it is clear that this cohort of GCSE students have a great future to look forward to. The prospect of so many of these capable, curious, talented students coming through to our Sixth Form is especially exciting for the whole JCoSS community.

I thank my colleagues for their exceptional hard work, professionalism and care which underpin everything that our students achieve.  They are a remarkable team, and I am profoundly grateful to them, and for them.

Others are heading into apprenticeships or pursuing other routes.

Headteacher Dr Melanie Lee commented:

I am thrilled and privileged to be announcing these brilliant results, my first as JCoSS Headteacher. Despite the promise of tougher grading this year our students have achieved even better outcomes than the pre Covid 2019 results. I am extremely proud of our Y13s and I am equally indebted to all the magnificent staff at JCoSS for their continued hard work, passion for learning and dedication to our students. I pay tribute also to parents who have shouldered additional burdens over these past years.

This cohort of young people have faced unique challenges during their time at school – GCSE courses were interrupted and there was no chance to prove themselves in the exam hall. They took their exams this summer without the benefit of that experience, on top of significant disruption throughout the pandemic years. This excellent set of results illustrates the importance of hard work, dedication and resilience and I wish everyone a hearty Mazeltov on such wonderful achievements.

Our students’ academic accomplishments give us cause for great celebration, but we also take much pride in acknowledging that our students leave JCoSS as accomplished Mensches, embodying the values of the school and the wider community. We know that they will continue to achieve, enrich and inspire in all that they do; we wish them joy, success and happiness in the future.
