We are thrilled with the GCSE results with over 70% A*- C grades, well above the national average in Wales. The English pass rate of 85.7 % A*-C and 100% overall pass rate is particualry exciting as 60% of the pupils are Dyslexic. Acting Headmaster, Andrew Russell said, “I am overjoyed at the results obtained by our Year 11 pupils. It is a real testament to the hard work by pupils and staff and the faith placed in us by the parents.” Poppy Maguire produced 7 A*s and AA in Science. Germaine Maguire, Poppy’s mother said, ”Poppy worked so hard, we are overwhelmed, her results are so well deserved.” So many of our pupils produced outstanding results exceeding their expectations. We offer a combination of BTECs and GCSEs which, when calculated together, give St David’s an outstanding 0.72 value added. This means that our pupils are on average achieving grades close to one grade higher on average than expected but this year in some areas this was closer to two grades higher and English was on average one grade higher. These are remarkable statistics and we are so proud of our pupils, their teachers and the partnership we have with parents.
