Forty-three per cent of GCSE grades were A* or A and half the candidates passed 10 subjects at C grade or better. As with this year’s A level results at the school, pupils scored well in those ‘hard’ subjects which the Government is wanting more pupils to study. French, for example, not only had a 100% pass rate but also a paper which earned a place in the top 5 best papers out of 138,000 candidates nationally. Yet, creative subjects also did well with the Art Department obtaining 100% of its grades at A* or A.
Phillip Jones, Headmaster, was pleased at the school’s performance. “Nationally we are delighted at some outstanding achievements by the top candidates, many of them local Brecon boys and girls such as Amy Evans, Huw Silk, Lucy Davies, Matthew Smith and Philip Baker, but all teachers and parents will share our deep joy at the attainment of some pupils who might not have got A* grades, but who performed wonderfully well for their ability. We are just as proud of them and the solid foundations they are putting down for Sixth Form challenges to come” he said.
