"Remember that you are much more than a grade.

"The resilience and determination you have shown is remarkable and commendable.

"You are all exceptional, inspirational and talented young people, and we couldn’t be prouder of you.”

We couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments, not just with their exam results but how they have grown and developed as young people.

Constant shifting of GCSE grade boundaries and amendments to courses did not deter the students determined to hit the highest-grade outcomes.

Their attitude and behaviour throughout the examination period was described as “exemplary”.

“The achievements and personal growth demonstrate that students at JSTC get a good quality of education which sets them on the right path for their future careers.

“JSTC is proud of all our students and their achievements.”
