Wales High School is once again extremely proud of the efforts of our students in achieving a fantastic set of GCSE results. Overall performance was sustained at a level significantly above national average which fell slightly this year, with two out of every three pupils achieving 5 A* to C grades including English and Maths.
The school is even more proud that 97% of students achieved 5 pass grades between A* and G including English and Maths – the teaching staff have worked very hard with ALL students to make sure they get the best outcomes they possibly can.
There are several stand-out performances by individual students, with Daniel Scobbie collecting 10 A*s and one A, and both Joseph Gill and Georgia Mason achieving 8 A*s and 3 As. Daniel and Joseph even went on to record A** in Further Maths, putting them in the top 9% of students taking this GCSE nationally – really well done to them both! Our teachers are particularly delighted with the success of Ellie Fisher, who only joined the school during Year 11, and went on to achieve 7 grades at either A* or A.
Headteacher Pepe Di’Iasio commented that “the work of our students and teaching staff has resulted in a superb set of results for the students. More than half of our students achieved at least one A* or A, whilst practically every student achieved at least 5 passes.”
