We would like to congratulate all John Leggott College students and learners across the country receiving their results today.
“I am very proud of all my students. They have had the most diverse experience in our 50 year history. They have throughout, however, been fantastic in such a difficult time,” says our Principal, Leon Riley.
We appreciate this year has been somewhat different but students’ efforts throughout their two years of studying with us at JLC still remains reflective of their outcomes and grades they have received today.
The overall college results are exceptionally strong, with increases in A*-A, A*-B with 1 out of every 2 students at A Level receiving high grades. In BTEC subjects, 9 out of every 10 students achieved a Distinction or a Distinction*. We have seen particularly strong results in 3D Design, Fashion & Textiles, Maths, Chemistry, Physics to name a few.
We would like to congratulate all our students who have positive destinations, with 5 students securing places at Oxford or Cambridge University.
The College has seen some changes from the teacher predicted grades, and the one received by students this morning. Principal Leon Riley said “The vast majority of our learners received, the grades we predicted and we are in a better position than many colleges. However, my main priority is to secure the grades that I believe my students truly deserve. We will be working with students on appeals when government guidance is announced.”
We cannot confirm the process for autumn exams, however the government will be looking at support packages to support schools and colleges with this; we will keep our students updated through our website. Our Careers and Progression Team are available for 12 months after our students leave, to access support around employment and universities.
It definitely has been a strange results day as normally we celebrate a great day of success together, however this year our activities and support is virtual. On behalf of our senior leadership team, a huge thank you to all staff who have worked incredibly hard to progress onto positive destinations and adapt fantastically during the current climate.
We would like to wish our 2020 leavers all the best of luck in the future and we will be inviting you all to celebrate in safer times in the future.
