Congratulations to our Year 13 learners
We are delighted with our A-Level and BTEC results this year and are immensely proud of the achievements of all of our learners. At a time when A-Level programmes nationally have been subject to significant change, our learners have had to work especially hard and they have risen to this challenge remarkably well and achieved results that do themselves and our school great credit. We are delighted to see so many of our learners succeeding in gaining access to their first-choice destination next year, whether this is at university, a professional apprenticeship or the workplace.
We achieved an overall pass rate of 97% with 56 out of 57 of learners achieving the Level 3 threshold. The number of passes at A*-C was 71%. There was an impressive improvement of learners achieving 3 A*-A grades which marks yet another year of excellent academic and personal achievements for our learners at CCYD.
Amongst our best achievers were Rhodri Ellis who achieved 3 A* and is now going to Bath university to study Computer Science and Mathematics. Head girl Megan Nicholas achieved 2 A* and an A and is going to Exeter University to study Geography Science. Deputy Head boy Kai Owens achieved 3 A grades and a B and is now going to Exeter University to study Philosophy. Jordan Jones achieved an impressive 3 A grades and an A* and is going to Swansea University to study Computer Science. Congratulations also needs to go to Loren Taylor who achieved 2A*, 2 A’s and a B grade and is now going to study Architecture at Cardiff University. We have complete admiration for Loren who studied 5 A levels whilst also playing the lead role in our school production of Legally Blonde in July.
There were also many others who did extremely well and achieved or exceeded their target grades.
Tracey Wellington Headteacher states: ‘These results demonstrate that the School is continuously providing high quality education to our learners and more importantly that our young people feel challenged and supported to achieve their very best. Teachers and learners alike have really focussed their efforts on achieving or exceeding their grades. All the staff at the school work incredibly hard to support and inspire our learners. Congratulations are due to a terrific group of learners and their teachers who worked so hard to achieve these amazing results. We share their pride and excitement as they embark on the next phase of their lives and thank them for their significant contribution to school life over the past few years.”
