DELIGHTED students celebrated excellent results at Ysgol Dinas Bran in Llangollen.
All entrants achieved the prestigious level three threshold of two A-level passes or more and more than half of all grades awarded were at A* to B.
Among the successful students were George Wort who achieved an incredible five A* grades in Chemistry, ICT, Maths, further Maths and Physics.  George will now go onto study Computer Science at Jesus College, Cambridge University.  Another high-achiever was Iestyn Watkin, who was awarded two A* grades in Maths and Physics, an A grade in Chemistry and a B grade in English language.  Iestyn also achieved an A grade in the Extended Project.  He will now progress to study Natural Sciences at Girton College, Cambridge.

Wilf Wort, brother of George, achieved an A* and three As, while Polly Harrison got three As and a C grade.  Wilf has successfully secured a place at Durham University to study English Literature and Polly will take up History at Keele University.
The vast majority of students who applied achieved their first-choice place at university.
Headteacher Martyn Froggett said: “We congratulate all students on their tremendous results.  
"They have worked exceptionally hard and can be proud of their achievements.  We wish them all the very best for the future.  A big thank you too to the staff and parents who have supported them.  It is a great year for the school - to achieve a 100 per cent pass-rate is simply fantastic.”
