As the Headteachers of the Secondary schools in Conwy we wanted to jointly celebrate the collective endeavours of our Year 13 Learners over the last two years on this, their A level results day.
We cannot underestimate how difficult the course of education has been for this particular cohort since the country entered a National Lockdown in March 2020. This group of young people have overcome adversity and challenge in the most difficult of circumstances showing resilience at its very best in unprecedented times. They have also clearly demonstrated a great level of maturity which will serve them very well in the next phase of their lives.
We are all very proud of the hard work that our learners have put into their studies and are delighted with their achievements and wish them the very best for their future at university or the world of work.
We would also like to thank our dedicated staff for guiding our learners though this turbulent time, preparing them for their A level exams. We thank our parents, communities and governors for their support in ensuring the achievements and success of all our pupils.
Well done, year 13, and all the best for your future successes!
On behalf of Ysgol Aberconwy, we would also like to add our congratulations to a number of students on their exceptional performances. Isaac Dean achieved 4 A* grades and is set to study Biology and German at the University of Manchester and Gabriel Barnett achieved 3 A*s and an A. Other outstanding performances were made by Eleanor McNab who achieved 3 A*s and has been accepted to study Physics at the University of Edinburgh.
We are extremely proud of all our students and are also delighted to see so many of them securing their places in their chosen universities to study a wide range of exciting courses. Erin Hughes has been accepted to the University of Manchester to study French and Chinese; Edward Griffiths has secured a place in the University of Cardiff to study International Relations and Politics and Isabelle Cutts will be studying International Wildlife Biology which includes placements in places such as South Africa and Mexico at the University of South Wales.
Headteacher Ian Gerrard congratulated all students and staff on their results and wished them all the very best for their future. He stated, “I’m delighted in the achievements of our students this year and I’m encouraged to see that such a wide and varied selection of courses are being followed by our young people across the UK. We wish them well for the future and look forward to hearing of their continued success in the years to come.”
