It’s late in August and, once again, a cohort of students arrived at Barry Comprehensive School to receive their GCSE results.

72% of students gained 5 or more A* – C grades, with more students achieving good grades in Maths and English.

Students who achieved top grades include: 

 

  • James Lofthouse, who achieved twelve GCSE grades (10 at A*) and the intermediate Welsh Baccalaureate which is equivalent to 4 GCSE grades at C to A*.
  • Samuel Thompson, who achieved twelve GCSE grades (7 at A grade and two at A*) and the intermediate Welsh Baccalaureate which is equivalent to 4 GCSE grades at C to A*.
  • Daniel Woolford, who achieved 13 GCSE grades (6 at A*) and the intermediate Welsh Baccalaureate which is equivalent to 4 GCSE grades at C to A*.
  • Thomas Stoneman, who achieved 11 GCSE grades (6 at A*).
  • Jahn Harland, who achieved 11 GCSE grades (4 at A* and 3 at A).

Acting Headteacher Jennifer Ford said, ‘Barry Comprehensive School has continued to raise standards. I am delighted with the number of students gaining good grades in English and Maths, as well as students achieving in a very wide range of academic and vocational subjects.  This 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.’
