Students smash high grades record

Students celebrate

SJR students have achieved a fantastic set of results and surpassed all previous records for high grade achievement. 

The overall A Level pass rate is close to 100% for the third consecutive year and, remarkably, high grades have increased by 7%. This represents the College’s biggest ever increase in grades A*-B and is expected to contribute to another outstanding ‘value added’ performance for a group of young people, many of whom would not be afforded the opportunity to study A Levels at other colleges. 

24 out of 28 A Level subjects had a 100% pass rate. Vocational Advanced courses broke all records with students achieving an amazing 100% pass rate across all subjects for the second year running and more than three quarters of students were awarded a Distinction or Distinction*.
