It was lovely to see so many happy young people receiving their GCSE results at Bryntirion this morning. Congratulations to everyone on achieving so well in such a wide range of qualifications, with pupils of all abilities and interests excelling this year. As always, success in school is as a result of the partnership between pupils, teachers and parents, so our congratulations and thanks extend to everyone.

Nearly a third of all pupils achieved a remarkable 5 or more A*/A grades in GCSEs and other qualifications. Furthermore, we are delighted with the fact that every pupil achieved at least 5 GCSEs (or equivalent), once again showing the inclusive, comprehensive nature of a school where everyone’s achievements are celebrated and valued.

Whilst most Year 11 pupils will be returning to Bryntirion to continue their studies in the sixth form, others will be moving on to further education elsewhere, or to the world of work. We wish everyone the best of luck in this exciting next stage of their lives.
