Head of sixth form, Joe Ryan and acting head, Trevor Brown are delighted at their pupils success.

Mr Brown said: “We are delighted with our young people. They have been incredibly successful, and that is a testament to their incredible hard work and the fantastic hard work of our dedicated teachers and supportive parents.”

With 80 percent of students at the school achieving A* to C grades and 47 percent of students achieving A*to B grades the head had reason for celebration.


Mr Brown added “We are incredibly proud of our students because we believe that their outstanding academic success will prepare them for the next step in their lives, whether it university or training.”

THE Welsh education minister Huw Lewis says officials will take a closer look to see why the proportion of students getting top A*-A grades has fallen for four years in a row in Wales.
Country-wide statistics yesterday showed the A*-E and A* grade rates were the same rate as in 2012 at 97.6 per cent and 6 per cent respectively.
But grade A-A*s were down for the fourth year running, from 25 per cent in 2009 and 23.6 per cent in 2012 to 22.9 per cent in 2013.
Speaking to the Argus Huw Lewis, education minister, said there was a “good solid stable” picture, adding: “There’s some good results with three quarters of Welsh youngsters hitting those grades A-C and there’s particularly interesting things going on in terms of an upturn in mathematics.”

26% of students receiving A & A* is not palatable against less then 10% in the 1960's to 80's. This is not a true reflection on the standard of education nor does it mean students are much more intelligent. To achieve this standard the levels have been dropped.
