As the Headteachers of the Secondary schools in Conwy we wanted to take this opportunity to jointly celebrate the endeavours of our Year 11 learners in light of the unprecedented experiences they have encountered in their schooling over these, their GCSE years. We are very proud of the way they have approached their studies and the maturity and resilience they have shown.
As a cohort we have seen these young people challenged in a way not seen previously and they have risen to this challenge in a way that makes us as schools very proud. Their perseverance and tenacity have known no bounds. These are lifelong skills which will serve them well.
We are delighted with their achievements which we hope will serve them well in their future pathways may this be in our 6th forms, at college in an apprenticeship or at work.
We would also like to thank our dedicated staff for guiding our learners though this turbulent time, preparing them for their GCSE and vocational exams. We thank our parents, communities and governors for their support in ensuring the achievements and success of all our students.
Well done, year 11 and all the best for your future successes!
Ysgol Aberconwy Year 11 students achieved an outstanding set of GCSE results in a wide range of academic and vocational subjects. Gaynor Murphy, Deputy Headteacher, said. ‘We are so proud of the achievements of these young people. They have worked incredibly hard and have overcome the challenges they have faced.”
Some notable performances included: Kiera Williams 8A*s and 2 As, Lucie Metters 8 A*s and 2 As, Zak Parry 7A*s and 3 As and Cian Adams 4A*s and 5 As.
A record number of the year group are set to return to Ysgol Aberconwy’s successful sixth form to study a wide-range of A levels and Vocational courses. Some are heading to local Further Education colleges and some are going into employment. For example, Coral Cantwell has secured a place at the prestigious Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts – we wish her well in this exciting adventure.
Headteacher Ian Gerrard congratulated all the year 11 students and staff on their results and wished them all the very best for their future. He stated, “I’m delighted in the outstanding achievements of our students this year, especially given the disruption they have faced over the last few years. We wish them well for the next stage of their education and look forward to working with so many of them in the future.”
