Exams and Equalities Information

Please click here to view the School Performance Tables on the DfE website.

The School’s Equality Objectives are:
1. All students to maximise their potential in examination results. Ensure that all groups/cohorts, particularly those with protected characteristics continue to achieve above national levels;
2. To sustain outstanding attendance, e.g. at least 95%
3. To narrow any attainment gaps that may arise between the outcomes gained by Students/cohorts of students sharing a particular protected characteristic;
4. To develop further the numeracy skills of students/cohorts of students whose lower numeracy skills impact on the final grades/outcomes so that their final outcome/grade is raised;
5. To develop further the literacy skills of students/cohorts of students within a protected characteristic to raise their lower literacy skills to greater achievement and attainment in their chosen subjects. Our data indicates that these pupils achieve better than similar children nationally; however, our aim is even higher attainment. 

Examination Results 2016
JFS is once again celebrating the outstanding achievement of its students in this year’s A Level results. Over 81% of results achieved were A*-B grades, an increase of 4% on last year and the highest in three years.  60 students achieved A*/A grades in three A levels.  Additionally, the record percentage of A* grades achieved last year was matched by this year’s graduates.  We are particularly proud of the results for our vocational courses: the CACHE course in which 100% of students achieved A*-A and the new Hospitality and Catering course in which 80% achieved double distinctions.  Collectively, these results demonstrate the School's commitment to offering a wide-ranging curriculum allowing all students to achieve outstanding outcomes.
JFS proudly announces that an impressive 17 students, a school record, have secured their places for Oxford or Cambridge Universities. The overwhelming majority of students have achieved places in first class universities of their choice, these include 5 students who will be going to Medical School.
