Fantastic Results for A Level Students
I would like to congratulate each of our students who have achieved success with their ‘A’ level results. I am delighted that we have seen a 7% increase in the number of A* and A grades awarded to 39% and that the number of students achieving passes at A* to C grades has increased by 11%. Our Welsh Baccalaureate results are exceptional with 84% being awarded an A* or A grade, an increase of 10% on the previous year.
Particular mention must be given to Head Girl Lowri Wilkshire who gained A*A*AA and Head Boy Lewis Hooper with ABBCC. Great news for Joseph Isingrini who will now take up his place studying Music at Jesus College in Oxford University with 4 A grades. Similarly impressive results were achieved by George Trilloe with A*A*AA and Sophie Jenkins A*A*AB, Tristan Horton AAABC, Zoe Brooks A*ABB and Jack Davidson A*ABBC. Congratulations also to Jonathan Evans A*A*BD, Anne Marie Wattley ABBC, Seren Williams AACC, Georgia Landeg ABBD, Reagan Medcraft A*AB, Amy Davies AAB and Teigan Jones AAC who all performed to an excellent standard. Well done everyone.
In terms of our Sixth Form provision, these results are very encouraging, particularly as students are being challenged and are achieving the highest grades. Most pleasing is that all students who successfully completed courses are now able to access a course and destination of their choice.
As Headteacher I am very much aware that for many of us this success is the result of working in partnership with each family for seven years or more. As always the commitment from all students, staff and the support of each family is greatly appreciated. Mr Bill Davies, Chair of Governors expressed his delight at what has been achieved and congratulates all of the students on their results in addition to thanking staff for their continued hard work and the level of support that ensures Pontypridd High School continues to provide a very successful Sixth Form provision.
We thank those students who are now leaving us for their contribution to our School and wish them well as they move on to new challenges beyond Pontypridd High.
