Parents, students and staff at The Bishop of Llandaff High School have been celebrating two sets of record-breaking exam results this summer.
On 18th August, A Level students recorded record-breaking A Level results for the second year in a row, with 63% of all grades at A*-B and 86% at A*-C. Most students gained their preferred university places, with around 50% leaving to join one of the top ‘Russell Group’ universities. Top performing students included Rebecca, who achieved a remarkable 5 A* grades and intends to read Mathematics at Warwick University; Cameron, who gained 3 A*s and 2 As and will read Aeronautical Engineering at Imperial College, London; Lucy, who achieved an A* and 3As and will go on to study History at Cardiff and Joshua who achieved the same outcomes and will follow Religion and Theological Studies at Cardiff.
Headteacher Marc Belli commented:
“This is fantastic news for our school community. I should like to congratulate our staff who have worked tirelessly to support the students throughout their time in the sixth form, and I wish all our departing students great success in the future.”
Exactly a week later, the school’s Year 11 students proved that they can break records too by achieving the school’s best ever GCSE results, with a staggering 99% gaining 5 or more A*-C grades, with 89% including English and Mathematics – an increase of 6% on last year. Notable achievers this year included Hayoung and Steffan, who each collected 10 A* grades, along with another twelve students who all achieved at least 3 A*s. Sarah now has 12 GCSEs to her name including 7 A*s and 5As, and Maddie scored 9 A*s and 3 As. Some of the most pleasing performances, however, were from those individual students who have overcome significant challenges and have persevered in order to reach their full potential.
“The grades achieved today will remain with our students for the rest of their lives and are a reflection of their hard work, effort and commitment,” added Mr Belli.
