A Level Exam Results 2019

John Mason School is celebrating once again, with results that reflect the ‘outstanding’ rating achieved in May’s Ofsted inspection. The percentage of A*/A grades increased to 29% with 80% of all grades achieving A* - C. 13 students achieved at least 3 top grades, as well as the school having the highest completion rate in the South East for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, that students take alongside their studies.

Sarah Brinkley, Headteacher of John Mason School, said, ‘I am delighted that our students have once again secured such exceptional results; they are a testament to the hard work, enthusiasm and resilience we see every day from them. In times of increasing pressure on students to tackle more subject specific content and a rigorous examination system, I am proud that John Mason students have shone so brightly. As well as students going on to both Oxford and Cambridge, our young people have secured a range of excellent universities and advanced apprenticeships, that will change their lives. This is the gift of education and it is why it is such a privilege to work in this field.’

GCSE Exam Results 2019

John Mason School is celebrating a rise in standards for the fourth year running under the leadership of Headteacher Sarah Brinkley who joined the school in 2015, with 43% of students achieving 9-5 in both English and maths, which is a higher grade than the previous A*-C measure. We are also exceeding national averages with the % of students gaining grades 9-7 (equivalent to A*/A) in both of these subjects.

TeamJMS are very pleased to report that English has attained 75.4% the equivalent of A* - C, as well as 21.4% of students gaining grade 9-7 (A*/A). In addition, maths has continued its steady rise with a result this year and 24.3% of students achieved grades 9-7 (A*/A. Similarly, science has continued to build on the success of last year, with 68% of students gaining 9-4 (A*-C) which is substantially higher than the national average.

The majority of subjects performed the same or better than last year, including English, Maths, sciences, history, geography, art, textiles, graphics, 3D design and computing. These results reflect the hard work and determination of staff, students and their families. We are, as ever, extremely proud of our students.

The results this year reflect a huge amount of hard work and effort on behalf of our staff, students and their families.

Below is a summary of results with historical data showing the upward trajectory over the past three years:
