Sir John Deane’s celebrates stunning results

Sir John Deane’s has proven yet again why it’s ranked first nationally for achievement as it celebrates a record year of extraordinary results.

Students at the College achieved a 99.6% pass rate, with 113 students achieving exceptional straight A grades.

Principal Kerry Kirkwood, said: “I am absolutely thrilled with what our students have achieved with this outstanding set of results.

“They have demonstrated exceptional work ethic, commitment and ambition with the support of their incredible teachers.

“These results were awarded at a time of significant reform to A level qualifications, however we have not only managed to retain our tradition of success but deliver some of the most impressive results in our history.

“This is an extremely proud moment for everyone here at Sir John Deane’s and I’d like to offer my warmest congratulations to all.”

The success was shared amongst the majority of students with more than three quarters achieving at least one high grade of A*, A  or B.

The results mean many students have secured places at some of the UK’s best Russell Group Universities as well as Oxford and Cambridge.

There was an impressive 100% pass rate in 26 subjects,  with particularly outstanding results in the so-called facilitating subjects, which are the subjects most valued by the top Universities.

There were also some incredible individual successes with 13 students gaining three A*s or better, including Daniel Weaver (Helsby County High School) and Joseph Saunders (Bridgewater County High School) who achieved four straight A*s.

Others include: Alexander Smith (Middlewich High School) Daniel Hyatt (Bridgewater County High School), Lucy Stafford (Eaton Bank High School), Alison Hutchinson (Weaverham High School), Amelia Whitehead (The County High School, Leftwich), Luke Oakes, (Weaverham High School), Katherine Schofield (Hartford High School), Joshua Appleton (Weaverham High School), Emma Newnham (Christleton High School), Alex Naylor (Middlewich High School) and Laura Harvey (Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School).
