Post 16 Information Evening
On Tuesday 7 November we held our Post 16 Information Evening.
I was delighted that many of our past students of Saint John Houghton are currently studying at post 16 came back to talk to our students.
The evening was a great success and students left feeling very positive about their possibilities for the future.
Following our visit from the Ofsted Monitoring Inspector on 12 October – you can read the Monitoring Report HERE, together with the accompanying letter from our Headteacher Mrs Joan McCarthy.
On Thursday 24 August the Class of 2017 collected their GCSE exam results in the presence of their parents and teachers. It was a wonderful morning and it was great to be able to witness the celebrations that morning.
Our students and teaching staff had cause to celebrate with 71% of our students achieving a Grade 4 (the equivalent of an old C grade) or higher in GCSE Maths and English.
Our results are improving year on year with 13 of the new top grade 9’s being awarded to our students and 53% gaining a Grade 5 or higher in GCSE Maths and English.
We are pleased with the significant improvement in our results in a year of great volatility in the examinations system. Congratulations to the class of 2017 and we wish them every success in the future.
