The staff, here at Bryngwyn, are once again incredibly proud of the fantastic achievements of our pupils and would like to wish them every success whatever their plans for the future in education, employment or training.

” I am extremely proud of today’s excellent results which are a product of the hard work and effort of all the teaching staff, support staff and pupils and the continuous improvement and progress that is being made across the federation. As a governing body we will continue to support and challenge the Staff across the federation to ensure that both Bryngwyn and Glan y Môr schools remain amongst the top performing schools in Wales. These results clearly reflect the high standards of teaching and learning that exist across both schools and we really look forward to the coming academic year.”

Steve Mears, Chair of Governors

“I can’t explain my feelings at the moment. I’m over the moon. All I know is that I couldn’t have got to this stage without the help of every single member of staff at Bryngwyn School.”

Ethan Peters, Head Boy, who achieved 7A* and 2 A grades

 “To say I’m proud is an understatement! I’m proud of what I have achieved but also proud of all my fellow pupils who are receiving their results this morning. I couldn’t have achieved as much as I have if it wasn’t for the support of everyone at Bryngwyn School.”
