Fantastic GCSE Results - The Best Ever!
At the beginning of Year 10 in 2014 we set our pupils the challenge of achieving the best ever GCSE results and to their credit they have done that and more. I am absolutely delighted for every one of them as are all of the staff. All pupils have achieved a significant number of qualifications with 100% passing with 5 or more grades at A* to C. Within this, 40% of the pupils in the year group achieved at least 1 grade at A* or A and 10 pupils achieved a minimum of 10 A* and A grades each. It is no surprise that the total % of passes at A* and A grades has increased again from last year. Significantly the number of pupils who have achieved 5 A* to C passes including English and Maths has risen from 53% to 62%. This is the most important indicator when comparing performance in different schools and to see such a big increase in one year is a fantastic reflection on the commitment of pupils and the excellent teaching they are receiving from staff. The support of each family is essential and as always it is very much appreciated.
We have high expectations for our pupils and it is to their credit that they have responded so positively to the challenge we set for them. Our congratulations to everyone, in particular to Atalya Edwards, Zoe Evans, Taylor Ferguson, Logan Hill, Frances Hoey, Jessica Howells Mullen, Bethany Howells, Adam Jones, Elis Pryse and Ciara Richards who all achieved 10 or more A* and A grades each. In addition Tazkia Choudhury, Jacob Cook, Angharad Davies, Morgaine Davies, Corey Evans, Charlie Fitzgerald, Ellie Griffiths, James Hughes, Dafydd Jones, Chloe Jordan, Courtney Loveridge, Sophie Penikett, Spencer Reddy, Sam Rutter, Leah Smith, Sian Smith, Alex Sparks, Mariusz Stefaniak, Lucy Thomas, Milly Watts, Bryone Wheeler who all achieved a significant number of excellent grades, including many A* and A’s. We should also mention Shane Batten, Blade Sangha, Ellis and Joe Meecham, Sophie Bennett and Stacey Jenkins amongst many others who also achieved great results. Be very proud of yourselves.
Mr Bill Davies, Chair of the Governing Body would like to congratulate all pupils and staff for their effort and hard work in making this the most successful year ever – it is very much deserved.
These results prove what talent we have and what a fantastic way to end the 2015/16 school year ! We very much look forward to welcoming such well qualified and committed pupils back to our Sixth Form on September 5th.
Well done everyone.
