Porthcawl Comprehensive School was delighted to be able to distribute results to students at AS and A2. These results are the outcome of the unique and most challenging set of circumstances for students and staff. We are delighted that students have reached, and in most cases exceeded, their potential.

Students have had their endeavour rewarded with some amazing results. There is a large debt of gratitude for teachers who have worked so hard once again this year and for parents who have supported their sons and daughters. Excellent results truly reflect the effective partnership between a school, its learners and the support from home. In these remarkable circumstances, we are proud of the integrity and thoroughness of the centre awarded grades that have helped to shape these fantastic results.

Incredibly this year we have five pupils who have gained places to study Medicine, with our Head Boy Jonathan Munro taking up a place at St Edmund Hall, Oxford. Lucia Brown will assume her studies at UCL, Sophia Edwards at Keele and Chloe Wyatt and Joshua Audsley take up places at Cardiff University. We wish them all well with their medical studies.

Students are heading off to all parts of the UK and to outstanding universities to do highly competitive courses. Noah Henderson is off to Bristol University to study Aerospace Engineering and Charlotte Robinson has secured a rare place to read Architecture at Cardiff University. Mackenzie Randle has secured a much sought after apprenticeship in Surveying based in Bristol. Pupils have won places in universities such as UCL and Imperial College London, up north to Durham, York Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham, and south to Exeter, Plymouth and Portsmouth and all points in between!

Nia Clatworthy is heading off today to Lamont University in Beaumont, Texas where she has a full academic scholarship and she will also compete for Lamont in track and cross country for the next four years. Good luck to Nia and to all our pupils who are continuing in their studies.

These excellent results will ensure Porthcawl students have secured places at some of the best universities in the country and will help to unlock potentially wonderful futures. Congratulations to staff and students for their hard work and steadfast dedication in the most difficult of circumstances.

Andrew Slade
Head Teacher
