GCSE Results 2017
Riding The Waves
With 2017 came another outstanding year of results for Ysgol Glan-y-Môr. Pupils were overjoyed this year to discover that they had maintained the standards set last year. In a year where it has been well documented about a drop in perceived outcomes due to changes, Glan-y-Môr School delivered excellent outcomes for its learners as they move onto the next stage of their own journeys, and maintains standards in a year of significant changes to Welsh education.
There were numerous students who received envelopes containing quite remarkable results with over half of students achieving the “gold standard” of 5 G.C.S.E.’s with English, Maths and Welsh.
Paul Jones, Headteacher, was quick to point out that “I would like to praise the amazing efforts of all pupils and parents in giving their wholehearted support to both schools during a very busy year. Staff have certainly gone the extra mile again to give our pupils every opportunity to fulfil and in many cases exceed their potential.”
Mr John James, Head of School, had the final word…..
“In my short time of working with them, it has been obvious to me that our Year 11 students have given 100% in looking to truly achieve “success through effort” in what was a tumultuous time for the whole school, and we are all very proud of their achievements.”
