The efforts and hard work of Year 11 students at St Joseph’s College, Reading, have resulted in excellent GCSE outcomes again this year, with 64 percent achieving grades 9-7 and 100 percent gaining grades 9-4. Twenty-four percent of students achieved all ten of their GCSEs at grades 9 to 7. Three students succeeded in gaining grade 8 or above in all of their subjects.

Top performing departments include Food Technology with 86 percent gaining grade 7 and above; Music with 83 percent gaining grade 7 and above and Drama, Art and Design (Fine Art) and Latin achieving 80 percent at grade 7 or above.

Headmaster Andrew Colpus said: “I would like to congratulate our students who have worked so hard during a difficult year to achieve such excellent grades across a wide range of subjects. I am delighted that so many of them have chosen to stay at St Joseph’s to continue their studies in the Sixth Form. I look forward to seeing them flourish further, not just in their academic work, but also across their chosen co-curricular activities.

Today’s results follow an excellent set of A level results last week and my colleagues and I are immensely proud of the progress our students have made over this academic year, which has been like no other.”
