It was a real pleasure to watch our year 11s come in yesterday to collect and open envelopes containing their GCSE results. There were many smiling faces and sighs of relief from students and parents in what has turned out to be another all time high for the school (and for Rumney and Llanrumney combined).
In a year when results overall across the country have dropped, we have continued our upward trend with at least a 6% rise (results still have to be confirmed) on last year. Overall at least 32% achieved 5A*-Cs including English and Maths and over 90% gained more than 5 GCSEs. To achieve this in a year which has turned out to be difficult for all schools is a great success for us all.
Our English department did especially well. This was the first year of the new exams which made it more difficult for schools however the English department almost doubled their results with around half the students gaining a C grade or above. 100% of students achieved or exceeded their targets in English. This was a great achievement for our students who worked extremely hard over the past two years.
Thank you for all your continued support.
