John O’Gaunt GCSE and Vocational Course Results 2022
JOG students demonstrate resilience and talent once again
There was much to celebrate this morning at John O’Gaunt School as Year 11 students collected their summer examination results. From the many success stories, it is clear that the resilience and talent of John O’Gaunt students has shone through once again.
Head of School Richard Hawthorne said, “This cohort has faced so many challenges throughout the last 2 years of study. They have coped with everything from lockdowns and school closures, illness, uncertainty, regular disruptions to their learning and the return of normal exams. To see the collective and individual success stories from today’s results not only highlights their grit and determination but says an awful lot more about their talents than examination results alone can show.” He added, “They really are a special group of young people and we are extremely proud of every one of them.”
Whilst all students deserve great credit for their achievements, there were a number of notable individual accomplishments. For example, Victoria Jaworska achieved 6 Grade 9s and 3 Grade 8s. Catriona Durack gained 3 Grade 9s and 2 Distinctions in her vocational courses. Ben Brown was awarded 4 Grade 9s and 3 Grade 8s. Rosie Gregory obtained 3 Grade 9s and 5 Grade 8s. Naomi Fox-Shatford secured 3 Grade 9s and 3 Grade 8s with a Grade 7 among her other results and Jonathan Kelly achieved at Grade 6 and above in all his subjects including 2 Grade 9s and 3 Grade 8s.
Kainat Ali, who obtained 3 Grade 9s, Tiegan Henderson with a Grade 9 and 3 Grade 8s and Eliza Varodin with 4 Grade 7s should also be recognized for the incredible progress they have made since Key Stage 2.
Mr Hawthorne said, “These results demonstrate the very high levels at which our students are capable of achieving. There are many other fantastic stories of progress and attainment across the cohort.” He continued, “John O’Gaunt staff take great pride in supporting students of all abilities to achieve their very best and help them to do this year-on-year. I cannot praise them enough for their work and commitment to our students.”
Mrs Lee, Chair of Governors said, “Today’s outcomes are a result of the hard work, dedication and professionalism of teaching and support staff. I am very grateful to all staff for their fortitude and continued support.”
Mr Hawthorne added, “None of today’s achievements would have been possible without the unrelenting effort from all those who have supported these incredible students. I am extremely proud of the entire JOG community.”
