A-LEVEL RESULTS 2013: The John Henry Newman School, Stevenage
“EXCELLENT” was how The John Henry Newman School’s A-level results were described, with 58% of grades at B and above.
Thirty five per cent of students’ grades were A* or A, with an overall A*-E pass rate of 99%.
Charlie Anderson, director of sixth form at the Stevenage school, said: “We are delighted with yet another excellent set of results for our Year 13 students.
“In a year when the number of students in the cohort increased from 192 to 220, we are particularly pleased with the students’ continued success as 35% achieved grades A* or A and 58% achieved grade B or above.
“Despite this increase in the number of students, the average points score per student and per subject also rose. The majority of students gained their places at their first choice university including an increased number at Oxbridge and medical schools.
“The students and staff have worked incredibly hard and thoroughly deserve this success, which could never have been achieved without the exceptional support of our parents.”
