Pupils at Ysgol Garth Olwg in Church Village are celebrating their GCSE results with some individuals achieving outstanding success after an extremely challenging year for both Learners and Staff.
The 2021 results followed similar pattern to previous years with the attainment profile very similar to that of the 2018 cohort.
Among the school’s high achievers this year are:
Ffion Fairclough 13A* Elen Griffiths 13A*
Adam Bartlett-Jones 12A* 1A Poppy Vanstone 10A* 3A
Anwen Fowler 7A* 3A Beca Roberts 6A* 7A
Abigail Protheroe 4A* 9A Megan Edmunds 3A* 10A
Most pupils will now transition to the Garth Olwg Senior School in September to study A Level and BTEC courses.
Headteacher of Ysgol Garth Olwg, Trystan Edwards, said:
“Many congratulations to the pupils who have overcome many challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pupils have had to learn from home during two extended lockdowns as well as periods of self-isolation and today is a celebration of their resilience and perseverance. The staff have provided the best possible support for our pupils, and everyone has worked together as one community to ensure these outstanding outcomes for the pupils during an unprecedented time for education in Wales and beyond. I also take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the parents, carers and families for their great support.
We very much look forward to welcoming many of the pupils back to Garth Olwg Senior School to continue their studies in September.”
