Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan is again celebrating an outstanding set of A Level results.

All learners achieved two good grade passes and almost a third of learners attained two A*-A grades.

Many are now gearing up to start their degrees at university, with others heading off for apprenticeships. The joy of the results is that nearly all are able to take up to their first choice.

Head teacher Lee Cummins says he is delighted with the Year 13 and Year 12 learners’ results.

He said: “The learners have once again achieved an excellent set of results.  This is the second year the school has achieved great A level results with all learners getting two good A Level passes.  I am particularly pleased that the most able learners have achieved the very top grades at AS and A level.’ 

“Learners have excelled in both traditional and vocational subjects including Sports Science, Hair and Beauty and Health and Social Care. Their excellent performance will allow our students to continue their life-long learning journey.”

He added: “Our sixth form provision continues to flourish and I would like to thank all staff and parents who have tirelessly supported these young people in achieving these excellent set of results.”

A-Level student, Chloe Mainon (2 A* History & Psychology, 2 As English Literature and Skills Challenge) said: “I am relieved and pleased as this means I have secured my place to study History at Emmanuel College, Cambridge.”

The school‘s serving Head Boy Alex Whatron exceeded all expectations in getting the equivalent of 4 A*-A in Sports and Exercise Science and topped this off with an A* in his Skills Challenge Certificate. 

Head Girl, Emma Gizzi will be taking up her place at the Performance Preparation Academy in Guildford to study Musical Theatre. Emma said: “I’m really happy to have achieved my target in drama and can take the next step in my career.“  Emma originally secured a place at Laine Theatre Arts in Epsom, Surrey. A week later the Performance Preparation Academy also offered the talented student a place. Emma said: “I chose PPA in Guildford as I want to pursue a career in musical theatre with a focus on singing as well as dance.“

Joel Cunnah chose to stay at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan an extra year to improve his A level results. It proved to be a good decision as he now has an A* in physics and 3 As in chemistry, biology and maths. He had secured a place at Kings College London last year but his first choice was Manchester University. Joel said: “I didn’t expect to do so well but the extra year has paid off and I am now going to my first choice to study Physics.“

Learners in year 12 performed equally well with some exceptional performances in this year group.  Many learners in the year group achieved 2 A*-C grades at AS Level with two learners who achieved the equivalent of 7 A grades between them.   

Alex Dry has been studying hard for his four AS Level and has been rewarded with 4 A grades. He is away at the moment at St John’s College, Cambridge with the Sutton Trust where he is furthering his studies in biology to help with his university applications for next year. His mother collected his results and texted him the details. She said: “I’m proud of Alex’s achievements. He has worked hard and continues to do so. He is very pleased with his results.”

Whilst Ruby Edgerly, who had been studying for 3 AS levels also got a clean sweep of A grades.  This is an exceptional performance at AS level and everyone is excited to see what they can achieve next year.

There is still time to enroll on courses for 2017-18. Please contact the school: info@emrysapiwan.conwy.sch.uk or visit the school on Friday, September 1st between 9am and 11am.
