Ysgol Aberconwy students have achieved the best GCSE results in the school’s history, with over 75% of them achieving at least five GCSEs at A*-C and more than a quarter achieving five or more A*/A grades.
Special congratulations go to Libby Bond, Marnie Cockrill, Nathan Cuthbert, Thomas Kiddell, Ewan Marshall, Louis Morris, Ella Owen, Hannah Partington, Lois Porter, Elin Watson and Mabli Watson-Jones all of whom achieved at least 9 A*/A grades.
Head teacher Ian Gerrard praised the hard work of students and staff. He said,
“We are proud of the achievements of all of our students in a wide range of traditional academic subjects like Science, Welsh, French and German, as well as in vocational subjects such as Product Design, P.E., Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Hair Dressing.
It is so important that we provide a curriculum that meets the needs and interests of all and we are delighted that students benefit so much from their experiences here. The school has improved its academic performance in all of the performance measures used by Welsh government and we are extremely pleased with the progress we and our students are making.”
Aberconwy students are now looking forward to the next steps in their journey, with record-breaking numbers set to return to the school’s Sixth form.
