IT'S celebration time at Denbigh's Myddelton College once again!

Following on from excellent A-level results one week ago, where upper sixth leavers celebrated their exam successes with university entry, the school is again delighted to announce an outstanding set of results at GCSE level.

Some 78 per cent of our Year 11 GCSE students have achieved grades 9, 8 or 7, the equivalent of A* or A grades and 100 per cent secured grades A*-C.

Myddelton College headmaster Andrew Allman said: “I should like to congratulate all of our students on their excellent results.

"We are very proud of them; they worked exceptionally hard and took full advantage of the initiatives to improve their learning and revision techniques introduced throughout their GCSE courses.

"We are very fortunate to have hard-working students and talented teaching staff, as well as supportive parents.

"We look forward to welcoming a large number of successful and enthusiastic students into the sixth form in September.”

Megan Bishop achieved a suite of outstanding results, including four grade 9s, 2A*s and 3As.

She said: “I feel relieved that all of the build-up is finally over and was worth it and I can now relax.

"I am looking forward to studying mathematics, physics, computer science and Spanish at Myddelton in September.”

Megan’s mother went on to say: “We are very proud of Megan, who has worked continually hard and thank-you to Myddelton for their support.”

Katherine Balmer was another top performer, claiming 3A*s, a grade 8, and four grade 7s.

She commented: “I was a bit hysterical, I am so happy that the work has been worth it and I am looking forward to sixth form at Myddelton College.”

Katherine’s parents said: “It was an emotional experience and all of the hard work has paid off.”

Katherine will be studying politics, English language, history and psychology at Myddelton College.

Mr Allman added: “This is an exciting time for Myddelton College as its student body continues to grow in numbers.

"These results reflect the academic vision that Myddelton College has been striving to achieve since opening in 2016.

"We will continue to build on these successes and look forward to taking the college to greater success in the future.”
