August 20th, 2020, marks a very special day of celebration for Year 11 students in Ysgol Rhiwabon. No year of awards in education has ever merited “grades they deserve” more than this one. Our young people have been out of school since March. They have been living through a period of uncertainty, new constraints and anxiety about the future. In such a time their qualifications and sense of achievement are more important than ever before to support them in the next phase of their learning.
Ysgol Rhiwabon Staff and Governors are proud of the achievements of every single learner this year. We are certain the results awarded will support our students as they progress in further education and the world of work. The excellent results are a tribute to the students and their hard work across a broad range of subjects, vocational courses and skills.
The school is delighted to report;
- Every student is leaving compulsory education with a minimum of 5 qualifications.
- Excellent results in the core and non-core subjects, which builds on the success of last year and recent school records.
- A significant increase in the number of the cohort achieving the upper grades A* – B across their subjects, with some outstanding individual performances.
- Excellent skills development, evidenced through the Skills Challenge Certificate.
Headteacher, Mrs Ferron-Evans said,
“This is a year group which has worked very hard to secure success in challenging circumstances and we are so proud of them. On behalf of the school and the Governing Body, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, students and parents for their contribution to the incredible amount of hard work and dedication shown across a wide range of studies. The grades calculated by our teachers provide certainty and opportunity for the future, based on dedicated and sound professional judgement. As Ysgol Rhiwabon students move forward, supported by the school, the results will enable our young people to further their studies or to enter the world of work as confident and successful individuals. We wish them continued success and happiness in the future.’’
