It’s late in August and, once again, a cohort of students arrived at Barry Comprehensive School to receive their GCSE results.
82% of students gained 5 or more A* – C grades, with high grades achieved across all subject areas, including Maths and English.
Students who achieved top grades include:
- Thomas Cosgrove who achieved twelve GCSE grades (6 at A* and 6 at A grade)
- Matthew Ireland who achieved eleven GCSE grades (6 at A* and 5 at A grade)
- Thomas Jones who achieved thirteen GSCE grades (6 at A* and 7 at A grade)
- Harry Lambert who achieved fourteen GCSE grades (6 at A*, 5 at A, 1 at B and 2 at C grade)
- James Scott who achieved fourteen GCSE grades (1 at A*, 9 at A, 2 at B and 2 at C grade)
- Mitchell Thorngate who achieved thirteen GCSE grades (1 at A*, 9 at A and 3 at B grade)
Headteacher Gerard McNamara said, ‘I am very pleased with the achievements of our students. Their sustained effort over the last two years has paid dividends. We look forward to further achievement as students progress to the sixth form. This success would not be possible without the continued commitment of our staff, teaching and non-teaching, who really do go the extra mile for our students. We also need to recognise the support of parents at this very critical time. There is a real cause to celebrate in Barry and I hope families and their young people take time to celebrate well deserved success.’
