External examination results – summer 2014
We are delighted to report that the school had another set of very good examination results this year. We congratulate all our students on reaping the rewards of their hard work, determination and perseverance.
Our GCSE results were extremely good with 81% of pupils reaching the Level 2 threshold of 5 GCSEs or more between grade A* and C, or equivalent and 66.26% of pupils reaching the Level 2+ threshold including Welsh or English and Mathematics which is the best result in the school’s history. A total of 98.16% of pupils reached the Level 1 threshold of 5 GCSEs or more between grade A* and G or equivalent.
Our A Level results were excellent with 41.1% of all the grades A* - A; 89.9% of all the grades were between A* and C, and 100% between A* and E. These set of results are for the second year in succession the best A Level results of all the Cardiff High schools which is quite an achievement! We are especially proud of our success in the Welsh Baccalaureate, with the vast majority of the cohort achieving the Welsh Baccalaureate certificate which gave them an additional 120 points (grade A). We wish all our students well over the coming weeks as they begin a new chapter in their lives, the majority of whom will be starting a higher education undergraduate course.
Our AS level results were very good, providing a solid foundation to the majority of students as they embark on their last year in school.
