      Upper Sixth Form pupils secured 45.1% A*-A grades, which is the highest in the School’s history by some margin since the introduction of the A* grade.

      More than a quarter of all grades were A*, which is another record, and 63.7 per cent of grades were A*-B marks as a result of their exceptional efforts.

      The School also recorded a 100 per cent pass rate to round off a phenomenal year of academic excellence from the Year 13 group.

      There were a host of individual accomplishments, with Matthew Trumper gaining A* grades in Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics, in addition to an A in Economics.

      This included a combined score of 597 out of a possible 600 in his Mathematics papers, and he will now move on to the University of Durham where he will study Physics.

      Chinese boarding pupil Linda Wang confirmed her place at Oxford University after two A*’s, an A and a B, with Sara Owen securing a place at King’s College London where she will study Medicine after three A* grades, which included 585/600 in her Maths papers. This is an addition to the recent IB Diploma Cambridge success.

      Amy Cole-King (A*, 3A), Rebecca Lawton (2A*, A), Elinor Davies (A*, 2A), Emily Cashell (2A, B) and Vivia Li (2A*, A, B) were other pupils that attained exceptional marks to fully reflect their academic progression under the guidance and care of staff at Rydal Penrhos.



      33.9 per cent of all grades were A* (9 and 8), which is the highest on record.

      A total of 51.1 per cent of all final marks were A*-A (9-7); the second highest ever percentage at the school, and 28 of all entries scored a nine in accordance with the new grading system.

      The number of pupils that achieved A*-C (9-4) grades was 94.4 per cent across the 15 subjects offered at GCSE in addition to the three sciences, English Language, English Literature, Mathematics and Additional Mathematics.

      This follows on from Rydal Penrhos’ record-breaking A-level results, announced last week, rounding off a superb year of academic achievement from examination candidates.
