Emrys celebrates GCSE results

Emrys ap Iwan is celebrating another set of fantastic GCSE results.

The percentage of learners achieving an A* to C pass grade has shot up by 10 per cent amongst a total group of 183 who sat the exams.

The school has also maintained the high percentage of learners achieving five grade A* to A passes.

This group includes Rowan Boardman, Georgia Hall, Feng Huang Ze, Samantha Latham, Chloe Mainon, Emily Roberts, Stephen Robertson and Simon Rogers.

Headteacher Lee Cummins said: “This is a fantastic set of results and a huge success for everyone. We are also celebrating the outstanding performance of a number of Year 10 learners who have taken their GCSE’s early and obtained the highest grades of A* to A.  I am delighted with the increasing success of our learners to achieve such good GCSE passes.  This is very good news for all the learners and everyone associated with the school.  Learners of all abilities have achieved the results they deserve through sheer hard work and commitment.”

He added: “I would like to thank the staff and parents for their hard work in ensuring that the learners are able to confidently move on to the next stage of their learning.  They have clearly risen to the challenge of `daring to achieve’ at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan.”

Amongst those with a sheaf of top grades was 16-year-old Georgia Hall who picked up eight A’s and two A*s.  Georgia, who is now heading for the school’s Sixth Form next year, is considering a career as a forensic psychology.

She said: “My results are much better than I expected and I’m absolutely overwhelmed.”

Her friend Katie Farrall notched up five A’s and two A*s is also bound for the Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan Sixth Form and, hopefully, a career in child psychology.

She said: “My results are far better than I thought I’d get and I’m very happy.”

Two Year 10 learners who passed their GCSE’s a year early were Sarah Peterson and her friend Georgia Lunt, who was picking up her results the day before her 15th birthday.

Sarah said: “I’ve managed to get two A’s and two B’s and I’m very pleased about it.  It was a lot of hard work but it was worth it in the end.”

Georgia said: “I’ve got one B and two C’s and I’ll be back next year to do some more GCSE’s. I’m very happy.”
