Bryn Elian Results 2012/2013


Ysgol Bryn Elian is once again celebrating a remarkable set of GCSE and 'A' Level results. In excess of 95 per cent of the school’s Year 11 students achieved at least the equivalent of 5 A*-C grades and all students leaving with at last 5 GCSE’s. The staff, pupils and Governors are delighted with the outstanding results achieved.

Virtually all students gained 100% pass rate with in excess of 95% of pupils gaining at least 1 A grade or equivalent. This stunning figure is matched by the number of pupils who gained 2 or more A levels at grades A*-C, through our academically rigorous curriculum, making the 2013 results one of the best in the school's history. Exceptional results were again achieved in the demanding and academically challenging Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification, with Bryn Elian still being one of the few schools in North Wales to offer this qualification as an entitlement to all students.
