SIR John Deane, which is nationally-recognised as a Beacon college saw a rise in the number of top grades – with over a quarter of all exam results at A or A star.
Andrew Jones, Principal of Sir John Deane’s College, said: “I am delighted to be able to say that once again our students are celebrating an excellent set of results.
“It has been rewarding to see so many smiling faces around College today, especially as there is significant pressure to achieve good results with such fierce competition for university places.
“The results again reflect the hard work and dedication of our students, the care of parents and the high quality guidance and teaching of SJD staff.”
Some 609 Upper Sixth students received their A level results at 10am today at the College’s new £28million building, in Monarch Drive, Northwich.
SJD, which is Cheshire West’s Sixth Form College and is attended by hundreds of students from across the county and beyond, and this year 30 subjects obtained a 100% pass rate.
The overall pass rate was 99% - with 7.1% of upper sixth students achieving the new A star grade.
Of the 1,839 A Levels taken by these students, 26.4% of results were at A or A star.
