These excellent results help to cement our growing reputation and come at the end of a fantastic year which includes the recent Grease production which was a great success. They are results which any school would be proud of. We are also pleased that all our students achieved a qualification which shows that we are a truly inclusive school.”
Many pupils have decided to continue their studies in the sixth-form at Ysgol Maesydderwen, where they will be able to complete their A levels alongside the Welsh Baccalaureate and higher BTEC qualifications.
