Crickhowell High School celebrate their best GCSE results ever

Crickhowell High School is celebrating excellent GCSE results with 77% of all Year 11 students obtaining at least 5 A*-C passes including English and Maths: this reflects a 5% increase since 2014.   The school saw 98% of students achieve the Level 2 threshold (at least 5 A*-C GCSE passes), significantly up from last year and from 2013 with 28% of all GCSE grades A*/A level. The school is very proud that all Year 11 students are leaving school with recognised qualifications.

These impressive GCSE results come on the back of last week’s A Level results which saw an outstanding 41% of all A Level grades awarded A* or A and 100% A* to E. We are also very pleased with the number of Year 11 students applying to return to Year 12 and we look forward to welcoming new students who are joining our Sixth Form from other schools and colleges.

In Year Eleven 25% students were awarded 5 or more A* and A grades with 11% of the year achieving 10 or more A*/A grades. The school is equally proud of those students who achieved at least 5 A* to C grades despite considerable additional learning needs, performing well above their target grades.

Headteacher, Mrs Jackie Parker, said “These outstanding results reflect the significant improvement in attainment the school has made over the last five years. This is down to excellent teaching and learning, the hard work & dedication from our students ,staff and governors, combined with incredible support from parents and the wider community. These are excellent GCSE results with a constantly improving trend and we will continue to ensure this success is maintained; we aim to perform at even higher standards next year. Crickhowell High School is committed to raising standards significantly in education as a community high school in Wales, ensuring that all of our students are given the best opportunities to make sure they achieve their full potential.”

“We are so proud of all of them and it is wonderful to enjoy such days and moments in education when we can celebrate these superb young people and their outstanding success.”
