August 15, 2019

Following this year’s accolade of being one of the Times Educational Supplement's top ten schools for A Level performance, Ysgol Eirias has demonstrated clearly why it deserves that place.

This year, A Level students have sustained many of their previous record results with close to two thirds of grades at A* to B.

Outstanding performance in the gold standard “facilitating subjects” for Russell Group Universities have enabled a significant number of students to read courses in medicine, law, engineering and education to name a few.

Successful students were overjoyed with their noteworthy results. Excellent results in French and German has reinforced applications into Languages-based subjects.

A number of students have been successful in their applications into Classical Studies, Business Management and Nursing.

Once again, the vocational courses have shown excellent results with all students gaining Distinction or Distinction* in Health, Sport and ICT for the Diploma and the Introductory Diploma awards.

Headteacher, Sarah Sutton said: “I am so proud of the achievements of these hardworking and ambitious young adults. They are a credit to our school and their families. The staff are very proud of the results and we are grateful for their dedication and commitment to the futures of our learners.”

A significant number of students have accessed the prestigious Russell Group Universities as well as other top performing universities in the United Kingdom. 

Results of particular note include:

Eve Butler (A*, A*, A*, A) who is studying Medicine at Imperial College, London;

Molly Cottrill (A*, A, A, A) studying Classical Studies with English at Liverpool;

Caitlin Williams (A*, A, A, A) and Ffion Filzek (A, A, A, A) will both be studying Biological Sciences at Edinburgh;

Jack Manfredi (A, A, A, A) studying History at Lancaster

Lauren Howarth (A, Distinction*, Distinction*, B) studying Mental Health Nursing at Bangor

In Conwy’s schools the overall pass rate continues to rise with 97.4% of pupils achieving A* to E grades.

Cllr Julie Fallon, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Education said “I’d like to congratulate all our young learners throughout the County on their achievements in this year’s A and AS level examinations. They’ve done so well and worked so hard to achieve these results.

“I wish them all the best as they decide on their future careers, and I'm sure they will all join me in thanking their parents, families, our excellent teachers and support staff who have helped and supported them throughout their studies.”
