Penglais School has achieved outstanding A Level results again this year with 119 students entered for two or more A Levels achieving, on average, the equivalent grades AAB. The percentage of A*, A and B grades were 67%.
This success is a direct result of the hard work of our students and teachers as well as the support of parents. We are immensely proud of every one of our students. Those that have had to overcome considerable learning difficulties as well as those achieving at the highest level and gaining places at the most sought after universities. We are particularly pleased that four of our students will be going on to study at Oxford or Cambridge: Celine Brendler-Spaeth, Paige Smeaton, Phoebe Williams and Dylan Williams.
The following students have achieved exceptionally good grades.
Celine Brendler-Spaeth (A*, A*, A*, A*, A*), Phoebe Williams (A*, A*, A*, A*), Max Pitrowicz (A*, A*, A*, A), Megan Carter-Davies (A*, A*, A*),
Florence MacDuff (A*, A*, A, B), Natasha Galliford (A*, A*, A), Paige Smeaton (A*, A*, A), Emily Homer (A*, A*, B), Dylan Williams (A*, A, A, A), Thomas Mathias (A*, A, A), Cerys Sharples (A, A, A, A), Michael Lai (A, A, A, B), Grady Hassan (A, A, A).
Well done and best wishes to all our students leaving at this time. We look forward to hearing about your future success.
Penglais pupils have achieved the school's best GCSE results for the second consecutive year. A record 88% gained at least five GCSEs with grades A*-C. Performance in the Core Subjects is also very pleasing with A*-C rates of over 70% for Maths, 90% in Science and English increasing to 80% despite the decline nationally.
I congratulate all of our pupils on their thoroughly deserved achievements. "This is a shared success. As a school, we are grateful to pupils for their hard work, their families for their ongoing support and, on behalf of the pupils themselves, I thank the Penglais staff for their relentless commitment to giving our young people the best possible chances for future success."
