Students celebrate GCSE success – GCSE Results 2017

Category : Events

Students at Ysgol Clywedog are celebrating record results this week after publication of their GCSE results, with 97% of students gaining 5 or more GCSEs.

Head teacher Mr Matt Vickery said “I am pleased with the performance of all the Year 11 students. The results confirm the continuing progress of the school. There has been another record breaking success with 97% of students gaining 5 or more GCSE grades. We are so pleased that our students have performed 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 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.”

Whilst we are proud of the whole year group, it is worth noting that there were, as ever, some exceptional individual performances, leading to  a  record number of top A and A* grades at Ysgol Clywedog;

Abbie Whiting 8A* 6A 1B

Eden Jackson 8A* 6A 1B

Alex Williams 5A* 4A 4B

Lucy Williams 4A* 7A 2B

Elise Davies 2A* 10A 1B

Matthew Jones 2A* 3A 8B

Megan Owen 1A* 8A 4B

Reiss Moore 1A* 5A 5B

This year’s results will be a milestone because, for the first time, students sat GCSE English  exams unique to Wales. This qualification follows the made-in Wales maths papers first sat last November.

Ysgol Clywedog is also looking forward to a record number students continuing their education at post 16.
