Record results for school on the move
Students are looking forward to a bright future after achieving the best GCSE results in a school’s history.
A total of 94 per cent of pupils at St John’s School in Epping managed five or more A* to C grades – the best performance since the introduction of the exam.
Three students are now setting their sights on Oxbridge after excelling in their GCSEs.
Sam Kirby, Emily James and Emily Thomasz achieved 33 A grades between them.
Mr Kirby said: “I didn’t expect to do this well. I did a lot of revision; I worked for a whole weekend on history.”
Miss Thomasz, who achieved 10 A*’s, said she was already planning ahead.
“I would like to go on and do acting or something to do with English literature, she added.
"Going to Cambridge would be a dream-come-true."
Headteacher George Yerosimou said it was fitting the school to achieved its highest ever pass rate as it moves to its new home in Bury Lane.
He said: “Ninety-four percent of students achieved 5 or more A* to C grades and there has been exceptional performances across the year group.
“They all richly deserve the success they have achieved as a result of their hard work.
“It is fitting that the new Epping St John’s is opening in September at a time when achievement has never been higher.”
