Strong performance for GCSE students at Durham Johnston

Once again students of all abilities at Durham Johnston have performed very well across a wide range of subjects. 72% of students attained good passes in English and mathematics, with most subjects publishing an 80%+ pass rate. Students of all abilities have made great progress. Specifically, 80% of students are walking away with a pass in English at A*-C and 77% do so in mathematics.

Behind these statistics are countless stories of success, sometimes against all the odds. The governors and staff are proud of the resilience and hard work of this year group. Well done everyone!

Another set of fabulous results at A Level for students at Durham Johnston

Congratulations to our A level students on doing so well this year in their exams!

Durham Johnston students are once again celebrating outstanding successes in today’s A-level and AS level results, marking yet another year of excellent academic and personal achievements for students at school.

Michael Wardle, Headteacher, said, “Seeing so many students buzzing with pride in their success is absolutely wonderful. Both staff and governors are very proud of our students and their achievements. As ever, it has been a busy morning. We are pleased to see students accept places at a wide range of universities. Some 15 students will be taking up their offers of places at Oxford and Cambridge or will begin a course in medicine. Other students will begin studying in different universities throughout the country, and still others will move into the workplace or apprenticeships, including one at the BBC – students of all abilities doing well and following their dreams.

At A2 level 44% of grades awarded to our students were either A* or A – an exceptional achievement. Over three quarters of grades awarded were A*, A or B. This underlines the hard work and determination of our students, the commitment of their families, and the support of our staff. Both home grown students and those who studied GCSEs elsewhere performed well.

The Johnston community is rightly proud of all of its sixth formers, with students from all backgrounds performing very well indeed. Durham Johnston seeks to ensure that all of our students have high aspirations, attain well and are able to compete with the very best. Once again, our students have risen to the challenges set before them. Well done everyone!”
