A level celebration with fantastic set of results


Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan is today celebrating a fantastic set of A and AS Level results. 

All learners achieved at least two good grade passes and more learners than ever achieved the higher grades.  The performance at both A Level and vocational qualifications has been a great success.

Because of the outstanding results many learners are now gearing up to head off to university to follow their chosen path with others heading off for apprenticeships.  The joy of the results is that all learners are able to move onto the next stage in their learning journey. 

Headteacher Lee Cummins says he is delighted with the Year 12 and 13 learners’ results. 

He said: “The learners have again achieved a great set of results across the range of academic and vocational subjects we offer at the school.  Each year learners are out performing the previous year which is great to see. However, the most important outcome is that learners can fulfil their ambitions and I am delighted that so many are able to move onto university or other routes based on their stunning performance.

He added: “The sixth form provision in the school continues to grow and develop and these results are testimony to the hard work of the learners and staff who have worked tirelessly to make them happen.  We couldn’t do this without the great support we receive from parents and I would like to thank them for helping us make sure every young person achieves at the highest level’

Alex Roberts achieved 3A* and an A in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. He said: “Last year I was at Cambridge University and received my AS results over messenger. This year it’s been great to be able to open them at school. I was shocked and surprised but extremely happy.”

Alex is now returning to Cambridge to study Natural Sciences.

Lucy Humphreys gained 2 A*s (Welsh Baccalaureate and Psychology) and 1 A (English Literature) plus a B but was one mark from an A in History. She said: “I am really excited to be studying Law at Manchester University where Judge Rinder took his Law degree. Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard to help me achieve such excellent grades.”

Ruby Edgeley achieved 3As in History, Psychology and English Literature and an A* for her Welsh Baccalaureate.

Chelsea Tilley said: “I can take up my place at Manchester University to study Politics and German which I am really looking forward to.”

Learners in Year 12 performed equally well with some great performances.  Many learners in the year group achieved 2A*-C at AS level with a number of learners achieving straight A’s across four AS Levels.

Ffion Walker said she was “shocked but happy as it was unexpected.” She gained 2 As at AS in Psychology and Sociology and a B in English Language.

Matthew Fox gained 3 As in Maths, Physics and Computer Science and feels “fantastic” after opening his results.

Year 11 learner Cristina Costea gained an A at English Language AS a year early after gaining an A* at GCSE in the subject early in Year 10.

There is still time to enrol on courses for 2018-19.
