These are the best results our school has ever had, and are the best in the Bridgend area.

– All students achieved 5 or more A* – G grades, with 89.2% getting 5 or more A* – C.
– 74.6% of the group achieved the L2+ which is 5 or more A* – C including English and Maths.

– The core subjects of English, Maths and Science returned the best results in Bridgend.
– A* – C pass rates:
English 89.2%
Maths 76.7%
Science 82.3%
– These results compare very favourably with some of the top performances in Wales.
– The Welsh Baccalaureate performance was a staggering 96.6% pass.

The results at Key Stage III (Year 9) were very strong so all looks good for the future!
Once again, this outstanding performance is the result of the staff and students, supported by their families all working together.
