PUPILS at Ysgol Glan Clywd are celebrating following another year of "outstanding" GCSE results. 

Martin Davies, headteacher at the school, said he was pleased that "the high standards of the previous years had been maintained and even improved upon."

70 per cent of pupils achieved the level two plus threshold achieving equivalent to five or more A*- C grades, including Welsh or English and Mathematics.

96 per cent of pupils achieved the level two threshold achieving equivalent to five or more A*- C grades

26 per cent of the grades awarded were A*/A 

80 per cent of the year group achieved the Welsh Baccalaureate Intermediate Level two Award. 

Mr Davies said: "We are very pleased once again to see so many young people succeed. It is a tribute to their hard work and determination, the commitment of staff, and the support of parents.

"The challenging targets that were set for this year group as a whole have been exceeded and a quarter of the cohort achieved five or more A* and A grades.

"The pupils in this year group have worked diligently and co-operated happily with staff and fellow pupils, and have succeeded in drawing the best out of themselves and each other. They have also been fully supported by the school’s pastoral and mentoring schemes.

"The message is clear - pupils who work consistently and sensibly as a team, succeed and they can now step forward confidently to their chosen post 16 pathway.

"A large percentage intend returning to school to follow A level courses within the  Dyffryn Clwyd Consortium.

"Congratulations to all the young people. Llongyfarchiadau – ardderchog wir."
