Many of the students achieved coveted A* grades and demonstrated strong academic achievement, with the school expressing its pleasure at the performance of its pupils.

Jess Broom, of Gwernaffield, collected seven A*s and four As, as Catrin Davies, of Mold, chalked up six A*s and three As. Christina Jelley, of Llanferres, didn’t wobble
under pressure as she obtained six A*s and six As.

Elin Bamber, of Mold, achieved five A*s and six As, with Alexander Bridges and Matthew Weigh both attaining five A*s and five As.

Ashley Jones, headteacher, said: “We are really pleased with another set of very good GCSE results. This year there were some terrific individual achievement
performances by students and they generated our highest ever proportion of A* grades. For example, our top students achieved twelve A* grades.

“It is a fitting tribute to all the hard work of the students and teachers over the past five years, and indeed prior to this in their primary schools. Enrolment sessions for our Sixth Form, the largest in Wales, is once again expected to be very busy over the next two days.”
