Results & Achievements

We are proud to congratulate all our students on achieving another fantastic set of results with an overall pass rate of 99%!

We are very proud of all our students  who have achieved a brilliant set of results. It is incredible to see that a quarter of all entries achieved an A* and almost half of all our students achieved two A*-B grade qualifications. Gerard Moran, Head Teacher and Lisa Byron, Head of School  

In a new category which recognises advanced vocational exams, state schools including Archbishop Holgate’s School, in York, St John’s School and Sixth Form College in Bishop Auckland, Carmel College in Darlington and St Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School in Peterlee were among schools featured in the top 100.
Matt Dunn, director of sixth form at St John’s, described his school’s position as 17th in the country for advanced vocational exams as “outstanding".

St John's is celebrating record results for the fourth time in the last five years. Students have exceeded our expectations again to achieve the following overall results:

99.4% Pass Rate

Last week St John’s held its annual sports awards to recognise the success of its students across the range of sporting activities they had undertaken during the year. Approximately 180 students and their families attended the event held at the school.  The activity awards were presented by many or the schools’ partner community clubs including; Bishop Auckland St. Mary’s JFC, Bishop Auckland Rugby Club, Wear Valley ASC and Durham County Cricket Board.


GCSE 5+ A* - C including English and Maths – 82%

A Level – 100% pass rate with 79% A* - C grades

Students, parents, staff and governors at St John’s are celebrating an exceptional set of A Level and GCSE results.  Whilst national results have declined, once again St John’s has seen a significant and impressive increase in their exam statistics.

After a fantastic Summer of Olympic success for Team GB we would like to share with you our own record-breaking results. Whilst national results have declined, once again we have seen significant and impressive increase in our exam statistics. 

This year we achieved 100% pass rate at A Level with one in three of all A Levels taken awarded A* or A grades, as well as over half of the students who sat A Levels achieving at least one or more A*/A.
