Students at Ysgol Clywedog are certainly celebrating this week after publication of their record breaking GCSE results, with a 40% improvement in the number of students gaining 5 or more A* – C grades including English and maths. 

Head teacher Mr Matt Vickery said “I am thrilled and delighted with the performance of all year 11 students.  The results confirm the continuing improvements across the school, where academic standards have jumped significantly.  There has been a record breaking success with a 40% increase on last year. We are so pleased that our students have performed so well.

These results are testimony to the incredible hard work and dedication of the staff and students at the school. Everyone has worked tirelessly to achieve such outstanding success and is to be congratulated. I am very proud of what has been achieved and know that the students thoroughly deserve these excellent results .”

The results were boosted by the school’s intensive programme of additional  intervention and tuition. This programme has been focused on getting the very best out of each individual student and as the results show, has proved to be highly successful. 

Whilst we are reluctant to single out students it is worth noting that there were, as ever, some exceptional individual performances by students in year 11; 

  • Morgan Taylor achieved 7 A* and 4 A’s
  • David Thomas achieved 5 A*, 4 A and 3 B’s
  • Kashaf-Ul-Noor achieved 5 A*, 3 A and 2 B’s  
  • Dominika Jurczuk achieved an A in A level Polish, 3 A*, 4 A and 2 B’s
  • Cerys Owen achieved  an A*, 4 A and 7 B’s
  • Emma McCubbin achieved  an A*, 4 A and 5 B’s 
  • Charlotte Hutchinson achieved  5 A and 7 B’s
  • Billy Humphreys achieved  5 A and 4 B’s

In addition these results mean that every single student has achieved qualifications and we wish them all the best as they move on to the next phase of their education.
