Outstanding GCSE Results(Posted on 25/08/22)

The Maelor School are celebrating outstanding GCSE results which are amongst the best in Wales.

In the first set of examinations in three years, record numbers of pupils achieved A*-C grades and there was a sizeable increase in the number of pupils achieving more than five A* and A grades.

Mr Simon Ellis Headteacher commented “We have always had a reputation for performing well, but these results are outstanding. Having battled through the difficulties of online learning and pandemic closures, this year group have shown tremendous dedication to their studies. I am so pleased to see them achieve their potential with record numbers joining our successful sixth form for a further two years.”

Deputy Headteacher Katherine Garratt-Smith said, “Throughout the pandemic we were pleased with the engagement we got from our pupils, these results demonstrate the skills of resilience and persistence that we have been working hard to embed.”

Assistant Headteacher Nicky Preston added “As a year group we were so pleased with their behaviour and motivation. I am not surprised they have done so well. I know many are staying on to join the sixth form, but I wish those that are leaving us for more vocational studies the best of luck for the future, they have all been a pleasure to work with”
