A level Results

JCG students achieve highest results in College’s history

Carl Howarth, Principal of JCG, stated, ‘When you study tremendously hard, show great resilience and have incredible teachers, as our students have done, you thoroughly deserve this exceptional level of success.  We are very proud and delighted for them, their teachers and parents.  Over 50% of our grades are at the very top band of A* or A with 95% of all grades at A* – C.  We are also delighted that the strategies our students and staff have been pursuing has increased our A* and A grades by 18% over the last three years.  We believe all our students can do well and our students are showing this to be true. These results enable our students to pursue a wide range of degrees including Medicine, Engineering, Languages, Natural Sciences, Pharmacy, Law and Teaching.  We wish them every success and happiness as they venture on to universities ranging from Oxford, Durham, Exeter, local and international institutions to name just a few.  We also congratulate our students choosing to stay in the Island to work and have all secured positions in a range of local businesses.’​

GCSE Results

Carl Howarth, Principal, stated, ‘Once again our students have demonstrated with their fantastic results that with hard work, good teaching and aspiration, nothing is impossible.  68% of all grades were A* or A with 72% of all our students achieving 5 or more A* or A grades.  This is the first year of Numbers rather than Grades in Maths; a grade 9 is above the old style A* grade and is reflective of the very highest attainment across the country.   We are therefore delighted that 14 % of students gained a grade 9.  However, whilst these headline figures are very pleasing they don’t reveal the many individual successes.  It is wonderful to see students who have aspired and worked so hard to significantly outperform their targets based on their CATs data.  This positive difference is the value that they, their teachers, their families and the College as a whole have added to their education and we are so proud of them. I would like to thank their teachers and their parents for all the help and care they have given along the way.’
