A DAY of celebration is being enjoyed today (Tuesday) at Ysgol Maes Garmon.

The Mold school achieved its best set of GCSE results, with all pupils leaving the school with at least four passes to their name.

Results showed 99per cent of pupils gained at least five GCSEs, with almost three-quarters of these being at grades A* to C.

Pupils to stand out included Beth Hughes, who achieved six A*s, five As and two
Bs, while Ffion Conlan obtained five A*s, eight As and a B.

Emma-Sian Hughes scored five A*s, seven As and a B, with Steffan Gwyn registering four A*s, eight As and a B.

Ryan McKnight registered an A*, seven As and five Bs, as Iona Jones picked up the very similar results of an A*, seven As and four Bs.

Other high achievers were Meirion Hills, Rhiannon Owen and Owen Ifans, whose results all included an A* and several A grades.

Huw Alun Roberts, headteacher, hailed the results, which included more than half of pupils gaining at least nine A*s to Cs.

He said: “These excellent results are a tribute to the hard work and dedication of pupils and staff. In particular, it shows the commitment to continuous improvement, and a coaching structure which seeks to support and encourage high performance.

“We look forward to seeing the majority of these pupils returning to continue their education through the medium of Welsh at Ysgol Maes Garmon, where successes at AS, A-level and vocational courses are outstanding.”
