Almost three quarters of our pupils attained at least 5 A* – C grades (including English Language and Maths or Numeracy), 94% of pupils gained at least 5 passes at A* – C and all pupils gained the Level 1 qualification. Many pupils also passed the BTEC in Public services which is delivered as part of our school’s Combined Cadet Force.
The school’s top performers this year were Tom Wood with 14A*, BTEC in public services and a distinction in Additional Math and Orla Hesseling with 13A*, BTEC in public services and a distinction in Additional Maths. Also of note was Year 8 pupil Seren Dovey-Evans, who achieved a distinction in Additional Maths having sat her GCSE Maths previously.
Headteacher Rona Jones said ‘This year saw additional pressures for pupils and staff due to the new GCSE specifications in both Mathematics, Numeracy and English and the statutory requirement for Welsh Baccalaureate. The Welsh Government has also introduced changes to reporting measures and therefore comparison to previous years is difficult. We are delighted however that our high standards have been maintained and that that our pupils’ results were not negatively affected by these changes. We would like to congratulate our pupils and thank teaching and CCF staff and parents for helping them to achieve their potential.’
Chair of Governors, Tony Hannigan said ‘The Governing Body would also to congratulate the pupils and wish them well on the next stage of their journey, they have done the school proud’
