College Update

We understand that some limited information regarding how exam results may be awarded in future has recently been reported by some news outlets. This news is coming to us at the same time as you are hearing it and clearly we need to take some time to fully understand what this means and how it will affect you all. At present, the College has not been provided with details on how this will work, but has been informed that further information will be provided to us over the course of the next few weeks.

We will, of course, share this information with you as and when we are able to.

We know that this period of uncertainty is very challenging for you all. Everyone at SJR is working incredibly hard to prepare for what is happening and to support you as best we possibly can.

College closure

Following the government’s announcement, St John Rigby College remains closed until further notice.

The government has announced that this summer’s examinations will not take place and we have been provided with some limited information about qualifications due to be completed this year. There are still questions for sixth form colleges and schools to work through, but please be assured that we will do all we can to ensure that St John Rigby students who have been working so hard are awarded the results they deserve. There is a helpful guide to the cancellation of  GSCE and A Level qualifications here

During this period of closure, we are moving to a time of online and home learning. Staff have prepared for this possibility and students are advised to be working online during what would be their usual timetabled lessons, unless they are too unwell to do so. This is important for all Year 12 and Year 13 students. We must aim to complete specifications as we have planned as the government could use a range of sources of evidence to award grades.

Alongside this academic support, procedures are in place to ensure students with specific needs or those in receipt of bursary or free school meals have access to funds.

Year 11: Preparing for Study at St John Rigby College

With the recent closure of all of our partner schools we have produced subject guides for each of our Advanced Level and BTEC courses.

These guides will help you to prepare for the subjects that you will be following at St John Rigby College as well as providing you with some meaningful work to complete whilst schools remain closed.

We look forward to working with you in September!

Another Excellent Year At SJR

Results 2018

The St John Rigby College ‘class of 2019’ have surpassed the achievements of previous years’ students with nearly 60% of grades achieved being high grades (A*-B or equivalent).  It is worthy of note that this consistency has been maintained at a time when the assessment of qualifications has changed significantly and is recognised as being much more challenging.

The pass rate for Advanced Level courses has risen this year and has been above 98% for five consecutive years.  These grades give further cause for celebration in what continues to be the most successful period in the College’s history.
