Prestatyn High bucks the trend of falling GCSE results in Wales including a 19% increase in A*-C grades in English Language.
Prestatyn High has achieved excellent results this year at GCSE. This has been achieved at a time when all exams and courses are significantly more difficult and challenging.
Across Wales, many schools have seen their percentage of pupils achieving a C grade at GCSE in English, Maths and 3 other subjects drop significantly, some schools falling by over 20%.
Prestayn High has minimised the impact of the new qualifications and achieved excellent results including an unprecedented 19% increase in the number of pupils achieving C or above in English language GCSE!
There have also been many outstanding individual performances this year with many more pupils achieving A and A* grades.
New Headteacher Neil Foley said “These results are fantastic for our pupils who can now go on and study their chosen A-Levels. They are even more astonishing when you look at the national data and realise how much more difficult it was this year to achieve well in many subjects. This is the culmination of 12 months hard work, grit and determination and I would also like to thank all of the parents for their support and the staff for their tireless energy”.
Enrolment for the Prestatyn High 6th Form is at 1.30pm on Monday 4th September.
