Following on from last week’s A Level results, Hawthorn High School pupils are celebrating their achievements at GCSE today. Of particular note amongst a range of the highest achieving results were those of Sion Lewis, Manparteet Singh and Harry Robbins who achieved 9 A*/A grades; Guraman Grewal who was awarded 8 A*/A grades along with Lewys James, Karun Dhindsa, Matthew Owen, Seren Denning, Jessica Fry, Beatrice Mwendo, Ben Welling, Sam Quick, Rohen Renold and Cameron Thompson. Applications for the School’s Sixth Form have increased significantly and the school looks forward to welcoming back so many A Level students in September.
Performance at the highest grades was especially pleasing and, despite the very significant changes to the examination system this year, no pupil left without a qualification, 93% achieved at least 5A* –
Headteacher Mr Jason Hicks said “The changes to the examination system in Wales this year make it very difficult to draw comparisons with previous performance but the results continue to be a credit to all the hard work of staff and students alike. In terms of pupils achieving the highest grades these are, however, amongst the best GCSE results ever at Hawthorn High School in a whole range of subjects and we are immensely proud of the young people who have achieved them. To see our pupils achieve in this fashion under such intense pressure is delightful and their parents should be very proud of them. This has been a real team effort between staff, parents, pupils and governors and I would like to thank them all for their hard work and support.
The school continues to move from strength to strength in its efforts to provide health, happiness and success for all the young people in its care. We look forward to welcoming the majority of Year 11 back to our new Sixth Form partnership in September, where facilities will be the best they have ever been.”
