Another Year of Impressive Results for Y13

JMHS Year 13 students achieve another year of excellent results.

Year 13 students at John Masefield High School received another year of impressively strong A Level results on Thursday morning  including  two-fifths of all grades (40%) at the top A* and A grades and  61% of all grades at A* to B.  In addition 82%, our highest ever proportion, achieved A*- C grades.

On the back of these results the vast majority of students will go on to their first choice universities and can be extremely proud of how well they have achieved.

A Level subject highlights include:

  • Maths             60%    A*to A grades
  • Languages    56% A* to A grades
  • Sciences       40% A* to A grades
  • Psychology   75% A* to B grades
  • Humanities    73% A* to B grades
  • BTECS (Business, Sport & Health & Social Care) 73% Distinction* to Distinction

Amongst extremely excited students were Lauren Hill who achieved A*A*A* A and will go on to read Music at Oxford, Emily Warmington who achieved A*A*A A and will pursue Medicine at Birmingham University and PJ Recordon who achieved A*AAA who will now study Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Sheffield.

Mark Hawksworth, Head of Sixth Form said ‘ Another year of superb results on the back of the dedication and hard work from staff and students and the individual attention we can give with our small class sizes. On average students achieved an impressive half a grade up in each of their subjects. It is extremely satisfying to see so many students going on to great futures.’
