Bryn Elian Celebrate 2018 Results

Once again, we are delighted by the outstanding results achieved by our dedicated and hard working pupils with 2018 giving us yet another excellent crop of Post 16 performance results with a 100% meeting the Level 3 Threshold. All students gained qualifications with many of pupils gaining A*/A or equivalent in at least one subject area. Exceptional results were also achieved in the demanding and academically challenging Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate.

The school is proud of the fact that pupils were placed on the correct learning pathway enabling them to achieve these extremely strong results.

Performances at the highest level of excellence were gained by the following, to name but a few at A level and/or their equivalencies:

Luke Williams
Rhiannon Lloyd Parry
Anna Higgins
Lauren Hargreaves
Rebecca Ellis
Imogen Ravenscroft
Richard Scott and
Kieran Jones who is off to Cambridge University to study Law.

The school is delighted that the vast majority of students have been able to take up a place at one of their universities of choice.

The Headteacher, Mrs Eithne Hughes said: “Congratulations to all our students for their successes in these important examinations. Bryn Elian students have once again demonstrated that the school successfully provides both academic rigour alongside broader achievements, through an innovative curriculum which embraces academic, vocational and extra-curricular opportunities. This innovative curriculum, and its successful outcomes for our students was a feature of our recent Estyn Inspection report. Thanks go to all staff for their hard work and excellent teaching of the students. We, as a school, wish all the students the very best of luck for their continued studies.”

Mr Phil Capper, Chair of the school Board of Governors added his thanks to all staff for their hard work and hearty congratulations to all pupils on their phenomenal success on behalf of the Governing body. He also wished to express a thank you to all the parents who have offered unstinting support to the school.

Ysgol Bryn Elian is once again celebrating a very successful set of GCSE results, adding to the great success of last week’s A’ level results. The results are a testament to the hard work put in by the pupils of year 11 in a wide curriculum choice.

Students not only scored well scored well in well-established subject areas but also in the new Skills Challenge Certificate, a qualification which is rigorous and different to traditional GCSE’s demanding at times a different skill-set. All students are also leaving Year 11 with at least 5 GCSE’s.

With so many students gaining such a high volume of higher grades equivalent to 5A*-C, it is difficult to single out individual students. However congratulations for exceptional performances go to:

Emma Foster
Zacchaeus Hayward
Cassie Parry
Megan Jones
Sebastian Birchall
Josh Cleverley
India Curtis-Roberts
Owen Fordham

The Headteacher, Mrs E Hughes, said, “Yet again the school has achieved results of a high standard, beating expectations in many areas. We are very proud of all the young people who have worked so hard and tirelessly. We are very much looking forward to seeing them back in our successful sixth form in September. Bryn Elian’s success comes from offering our students a varied and appropriate curriculum, enhanced by our support systems in school and also our intensive mentoring package. Thanks go to all the staff for all their hard work and excellent teaching of these Year 11 students. The success of these students is because of the exceptional partnership we also have with parents and together the support provided at both home and school has enabled our students to shine.”

Mr Capper, Chair of Governors joined Mrs Hughes in congratulating all pupils and staff and parents on behalf of the Governing Body
