Celebrating A level Success in 2018
Pupils, parents and staff at St John’s School, Leatherhead, are celebrating impressive A level results for 2018. The cohort of 126 pupils achieved 47% A*/A grades, with 31% of pupils receiving three or more A* or A grades. A total of 81% of grades were A*-B and the pass rate was 100%.
The strong results mean that St John’s Upper Sixth leavers are now able to pursue an exciting array of higher education opportunities. All the future medics achieved their offers and will be taking up their places to study medicine. Other courses being accepted are as diverse as Physics and Space Science, English Literature and Philosophy, Mechanical Engineering and Political Science and International Relations. This year’s leavers will be moving on to destinations including Bath, Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Exeter and Oxford among many others.
Rowena Cole, The Head of St John’s, commented: “I am so pleased that our departing Upper Sixth have achieved these results. They have been an excellent year group and have made an enormous contribution to the St John’s community, from leading the younger pupils with maturity, to competing on the sports field, taking part in music and drama and being active in every aspect of school life. Their energetic and enthusiastic approach to life, whether demonstrated in how they dealt with exams or how they celebrated together as a whole year group at our Leavers’ Ball, has made them a pleasure to be around. Amongst the overall success, there are many individual stories of outstanding dedication, effort and excellence and I congratulate them all. I would personally like to thank them for making my first year as The Head of St John’s such a memorable and enjoyable time and wish them every success for the future.”
