Ysgol Aberconwy confirmed as one of the best English medium secondary schools in Conwy!

28 March 2019

At Ysgol Aberconwy, we are pleased to see the facts are in the figures. Statistics recently released by ‘My Local School’ highlight that the plans we have introduced at the school, are already showing significant improvements to our performance overall.

The website for My Local School, provided by the Welsh Government, has been designed to give parents, guardians and others with an interest in their local school, the ability to access school data and share information about school performance. This provides a transparent and open source of information widely available to everyone, whilst allowing users to cross-reference performance of local schools in their area.

At Ysgol Aberconwy, we are delighted to be placed in the top two English medium secondary schools in Conwy, with the attendance of our students being the best in the county and the number of students achieving 5A*/A’s at GCSE level reaching a record high.

Not only that, we are also the only secondary school in Conwy to have 100% of students achieving at least five GCSE’s (A*-G). We also have three quarters of our students achieving the level 2 threshold (five GCSEs at A*-C) with over half of these including English/Welsh and Maths at GCSE too.

Our exam results along with the comments made by Estyn in their latest inspection of the school indicate the positive direction we are heading at Ysgol Aberconwy.  The inspectors identified the “inclusive, supportive and nurturing ethos”, we provide here at the school, which “has a significant beneficial impact on students’ wellbeing and personal development.”  Together with the unshakeable belief that students thrive in a supportive, well organised environment that combines traditional values with modern resources, all the evidence points towards our increasing success as a school.

Mr Gerrard, Headteacher, stated “We are extremely proud of our students and their achievements. They have been described as courteous and respectful and have a positive attitude to learning.  We recognise the need to equip our students with the skills they need in the modern world and seek to guide them on the path to being happy and confident individuals through a balanced blend of experiences and qualifications.

Moving forward as a school, we will continue working on the school’s development plan, with the help of parents, carers, students and staff, as we strive to live our mission to inspire, support and succeed.”
