We are celebrating the achievements of our pupils today with once again over 25% of all pupils achieving the very top accolade of 5 A-A* grades. The school has recorded some impressive results across the school with well over 75% of pupils gaining 5 or more C grades or above. Top performing pupils Emilia Bolton, Josh Dyson, Daniel McClean-Howell and Elizabeth Samuel all had a clean sweep of top grades. The quartet benefitted from sitting both their Maths and Numeracy GCSE in November and securing, along with 10 other pupils at the school, the top A* grades in both papers. This has enabled the students to get a head start on their A-Level Mathematics which they will all go on to study at the school next year. All have high aspirations for the future with Emilia hoping to study Medicine and Josh, Law.
Acting Headteacher Mrs Bev Cheetham said,
‘It really has been a monumental year for the school. In January we moved into a brand new, state of the art building and later that month we had straight ‘Excellent’ judgments from our Estyn inspection. To be celebrating such strong academic success both last week, and this week is really an outstanding achievement. Staff and parents are really proud of the pupils and their many achievements. We are fortunate to have a team of staff who work tirelessly for the benefit of our students, committed governors who are actively involved in the school, parents who are highly supportive and most importantly great pupils who have really good attitudes to learning.’
