Year 11 students at Barry Comprehensive are feeling very proud of themselves after receiving their GCSE Mathematics results from the November examinations. Due to their hard work, and support from their teachers and parents, 62% of the year group have already secured a C grade or higher in their GCSE Mathematics qualification.
Headteacher Mr McNamara stated ‘I am delighted for both the students and staff. Together they have worked incredibly hard to secure the very strong results.’
The Mathematics department are very proud of the students’ achievements but are determined to continue to work with the learners to move them on further. Sudents with a grade C or above are being given the opportunity to improve upon it in the summer or to follow an additional mathematics qualification that will prepare many of them for the challenges of A Level. For those students who narrowly missed getting the C grade they will have another chance to achieve it in the summer.
The school would like to congratulate all the students and remind them to continue to raise their aspirations to achieve even higher grades.
