Many congratulations to our Sixth Form students who have produced excellent exam results this year. We are delighted with our best ever A Level results that mean the majority of students, in a highly competitive environment, have qualified for a place at their first-choice of university or in the career they were seeking.
We are extremely proud that 24% of our A Level students achieved A* - A grades, 53% achieved A* - B and 81% of our students achieved grades between A* - C. The average grade achieved by our students in their A Level courses has improved again this year, placing the John Port Sixth form in the top few institutions in the county for its performance.
We are keenly awaiting our Year 11 student's results this Thursday. We will update our website with their achievements on Friday 21 August.
Thank you to staff and students for all the hard work and dedication that these results represent.
Mr Chris Sainsbury (14 August 2015)

GCSE Students studying Double Award Science
As you will be aware Year 11 students will be sitting their Science GCSE’s in the summer term. If they are studying the double award route (Core and Additional), Science forms two of their GCSE grades.
The students have covered the work over two years and so it is vital they start a programme of revision early enough to ensure they have revisited all topics covered since the start of Year 10, and that they are confident in their subject knowledge.
To help Students prepare for these examinations please find below a list of recommended websites, possible Apps and links to the specifications.
