Students at St John Baptist Church in Wales High School are celebrating outstanding A-Level results yet again. The school consistently achieves excellence, as judged recently by school inspectors, and this year has proved to be no exception. Students attained success in a wide variety of subjects and many achieved the highest grades of A*/A.
Headteacher, Dr S M Mitchell, said:
“I am delighted at the success the students have attained. They have shown wonderful commitment and diligence in their studies and I am so pleased to see that their hard work has enabled them to progress to the next stage of their career, whether this will be university, an apprenticeship or employment. Such success is consistently achieved at St John’s through the support, care and guidance shown by all members of staff, who really do go the extra mile to ensure students achieve their full potential. On behalf of our whole school community, I would like to congratulate our students and wish them continued success in the future.”
Students who achieved top grades in Year 13 include: Poppy Bissell, Anna Dally, Connor Davies, Matthew Davies, Sophie Edmonds, Samuel Green, Joanne Hancock, Thomas Harper, Connor Jones, Naomi Price, Alesha Sandor, Head Girl-Chloe Shaw, Rebecca Skuse and Head Boy Daniel Woodrow- Pritchard. All these students, along with a majority of their fellow Year 13 leavers, are now excited to be preparing to take up their place at the university of their choice, including several who will be heading off to leading institutions such as Warwick, Bath, Brunel, Manchester, Reading and Southampton to study subjects as diverse as Maths, English Literature, History, Engineering, Nursing, Midwifery, Occupational Therapy, Creative Writing, Events Management and Police Sciences.
The next generation of St John’s A-Level students is also showing significant promise, with some outstanding individual results from Year 12 students at AS. Particular congratulations must go to Rhys Johnson and James Sweet-Jones, who both achieved 4 A Grades. Both hope to go on eventually to follow careers in Medicine – Rhys as a surgeon, and James as a vet. Staff and Governors would like to congratulate them both, and to wish them and all St John’s AS students progressing to A2 all the very best with their A2 studies.
