Wales students have achieved the school’s second best ever set of GCSE results. The English achievements are the best in the school’s history, with both English and Mathematics results significantly above the national average. That this has been achieved in what is being described by the government as a “turbulent” year is truly remarkable.
A substantial number of students obtained the highest of grades with many achieving As and A*s and the school is proud that every single one of their students left with at least 1 GCSE grade for only the 3rd time in the school’s history.
In a turbulent year for A level outcomes the hard work and dedication of the students, supported by outstanding teaching, has led to a robust level of success. More so than ever before our students have been accepted at their first choice universities. While we are proud of Luke Cotter’s success in obtaining a place to study medicine at Oxford, we are equally delighted at the success of all of our students, many of whom have battled hard for a place at a wide range of other universities and in securing high profile apprenticeships.
Against a national background of falling pass rates, our own pass rate of 100% is exceptional. During a year in which the number of top grades awarded has fallen nationally, the achievement of our students is inspirational.
“At all levels we are proud of the journeys our students have been on. They have made fantastic progress when compared to the level at which they entered the school,” said head teacher Pepe Di’Iasio.
He said, “Students and staff have all worked tremendously hard and they should be congratulated on their success”
