Llanelli Star Reports on Bryngwyn Pupils' 'Olympian Effort'

Students reap rewards for 'Olympian effort'

BRYNGWYN School praised its pupils for a "truly Olympian effort" after they achieved its best ever GCSE results.

Pupils at the school in Dafen were delighted after receiving their results on Thursday — which bettered previous efforts despite an overall drop in pass rates across the country.

The school said 76 per cent of students achieved five GCSEs of A* to C or equivalent, with 94 per cent achieving the full Welsh baccalaureate diploma.

Head teacher Paul Jones paid tribute to pupils, parents and staff.

He said: "I would like to praise the amazing efforts of all pupils and parents in giving their wholehearted support to the school during an exceptional year.

"Staff have gone the extra mile to give the pupils every opportunity to fulfil and in many cases exceed their potential."

The success comes in the same year as an Estyn report in which it achieved 'excellent' in 13 out of 15 areas.

Top student Hannah Davies from Swiss Valley received 11 A*s.

The 16-year-old, who hopes to study medicine after taking her A levels at Gorseinon College, said: "I was really nervous and now I'm really relieved.

"I was predicted the grades but I was really worried — you never know how they are going to go."

Head boy Joshua Davies also did well, receiving six A*s and four As, while head girl Sarah Hicks got 11 A*s and a B.
