School Performance

2018 Examination Results

In the 2018 GCSE results of particular note was the number of students achieving a pass grade (grade C) or higher in the academic group of subjects defined as the prestigious 'English Baccalaureate' (EBacc.). To achieve the EBacc, students must study English, Maths, Science, at least one Modern Foreign Language (French or German) and at least one Humanity subject (Geography or History). Sir John Nelthorpe has topped the County League Tables in this measure, ranking first place for students achieving a standard pass (grade 4) or higher and ranking in first place for those achieving a strong pass (grade 5) or higher.

When considering the performance of students whose GCSE grades represent the culmination of 5 year's hard work at this School, the GCSE "Basics" measure (recognising students who achieve a pass in both English and Maths) saw over 80% of students achieving the standard pass of grade 4 or better and over 50% of students achieving a strong pass of grade 5 and above. A remarkable pass rate of 100% was achieved in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Business Studies and Child Development. There were also very strong performances in Modern Languages and Technology subjects, along with PE and History.

At A Level, the performance of students within the Brigg Sixth Form has been excellent with all students securing the grades required to be able to progress on to their chosen universities (the vast majority of these being 'Russell Group' universities) or employer and apprenticeship routes.

The 2018 Brigg Sixth Form results reflect not only the dedication and hard work of the teaching and support staff but I also wish to recognise the effort made by the students with some outstanding individual performances. A level study is challenging and requires determination and a real desire to succeed over two years. The school-based setting offered by Sir John Nelthorpe School offers the best opportunity for staff and students to work closely together to support the individual learner and larger-than-ever numbers of Year 11 students are choosing to continue into our Sixth Form for exactly this reason.

The wide range of extra-curricular activities and the enrichment opportunities available to our pupils are further strengths of this school, which, we believe complement our academic standards, helping our pupils to thrive and prosper both within the classroom and beyond.
