Well done to all our learners in Years 13/12. We are proud of what you have achieved during the most difficult and challenging time in your education. You have shown resilience, strength and true courage.
Our overall A level results are some of the highest achieved in our school’s history. In fact, our A*- A outcome is the best we have ever achieved. This is testament to the professionalism and hardwork of our staff who have given up extra hours after school including hours during the Easter and Whitsun holidays. 100% of learners have gained a place in university. 92% achieved their first-choice place.
Some of our best performers include:
Kieran Pritchard 4A*
Jake Real 4A*
Joshua Ryan 3A* 1A
Eeva Salo 1A* 3A
Ava Hicks 3A 1B
Millie Howells 2A 1B 1C
Ella Bridgeman 2A 1B 1C
Leon Wheller 2A 1B 1D
Catrin Nicholas 1A 3B
Ellie-Mai Davies 1A 2B 1C
Lucy Smith 1A 2B Dist*
Grace Hill 1A 1Dist 2B
Sam Gould Dist* Dist 1B 1C
Lois Dunn 1A 2B 1C
Lily Yates 2A 1C 1D
However, most of the year group achieved or exceeded their target grades and we had some encouraging BTEC results, and some learners had a wonderful mix of A level and BTEC grades. This again is testament to our curriculum offer at post 16 which allows learners flexibility when making their choices. These results have been well earned by our learners, they are above those achieved in 2018/19 and compare well with those given via CAGs/CDGS in 2021 and 2022. Again, in some areas the key headline figures exceed those awarded in 2020 and 2021.
We also had some amazing results from our learners in Year 12 and we look forward to working with them in Year 13. Again, these results are very optimistic and exciting.
We have used any additional funding from the Welsh Government to support our learners mental and emotional wellbeing along with extra academic supportincluding exam/revision techniques and we are proud of the fact that these strategies worked!
Our vision is about empowering our community to be collaborative and resilient along with empowering them to be self-confident and embrace challenge and this is exactly what has happened over the past two years.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our learners’ good luck and success in their next adventure. Remember to take pride in everything that you do because you deserve it!
