Twenty per cent of all A Level results achieved by pupils at Penarth’s St Cyres School were either “A-Star” or “A” according to details issued by the school yesterday.
The 20% St Cyres figure compares with the 35% achieved in A-Star and A grades at Penarth’s Stanwell School (see earlier item) and the 22% ratio achieved at Barry Comprehensive – but nevertheless represents a consolidation of St Cyres’s record performance last year.
In all, 97% of all grades received by St Cyres pupils were rated between “A Star” and “E” Grade
Amongst the outstanding performers at St Cyres were:-
- Felix Peterken who received 4 “A-Stars” and 1 “A”,
- Evie Brown with 2 “A-Stars” and 2 “A”Grades,
- Liam Richards 2 “A-Stars” and 1 “A”,
- Jack Corsi 3 “A-Stars” and 1 “B”,
- Daisy Farrow 3 “A”s and 1 “B”
- Veerain Patel 3 “A”s and 1 “B”
- Jacob Reid 1″A-Star” 2 “A”s.
The school has said it is “delighted and proud” of this year’s results which are in line with last year’s record-breaking results for St Cyres. All the students have been formally congratulated by the school.
South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies has today congratulated A-Level pupils across the Vale of Glamorgan for their excellent results.
Mr Davies said, “I’d like to send my warmest congratulations to students across the Vale of Glamorgan for some outstanding results – after what I’m sure was a very nervous time.”
Mr Davies notes in particular the performance this year of Barry Comprehensive for what he calls “such an incredible raise in the number of A* and A grades. The school is a credit to the town”. he says.
The Welsh Conservative leader says credit must go to “all schools, parents, friends and families – but most importantly to the pupils themselves. It is fantastic to see their hard work rewarded with success.”
