Headteacher Matt Duffield said: “Myself and all the staff and governors at Glyn are incredibly proud of all of our students today with the publication of their GCSE and BTEC results, and in particular the outstanding levels of progress demonstrated by these figures.
“Yet again our students have secured fantastic outcomes, significantly above national averages in terms of raw attainment, notably with 87% of students securing a grade 4 or better in Maths and a remarkable 93% of students securing similar grades in English. Early analysis suggests also that our Progress 8 measure will be significantly higher than last year and our best on record.
“We are delighted that the vast majority of our students have chosen to remain at Glyn to continue with their A Level and Level 3 BTEC studies. We also look forward to welcoming tomorrow our external applicants for Sixth Form enrolment.
“All of today’s results reflect the long term efforts of students and staff alike. Their professionalism, commitment and hard work has been remarkable, and naturally we are also hugely grateful to our parents for the significant support they have given to their sons throughout their studies.”
The top attainers this year were Jack Benton (nine 9 grades and one 5), Manab Shrestha (eight 9 grades and two 8s), Daniel Roffey (seven 9 grades and two 8s), and Ewan Bacoe (seven 9 grades).
Grinning from ear to ear, Jack admitted feeling great after collecting his results. He is staying on at Glyn to study history, politics and Maths.
“I’m not going to lie - I’m pretty happy about these grades. I had quite a good idea that I’d done well but I thought I’d be a bit more nervous coming in today.
“I was really pleased with my history grade because I want to do it in further education so really wanted to nail it at GCSE.”
Jack, who has been at Glyn since Year 7, added: “I think it’s the competition amongst classmates that has helped drive me to get these results today.”
Other outstanding achievers this year were Elliot Jackson (six 9s, two 8s, one 6, and one A), Oliver Russel (six 9s, three 8s, one 6), and Cameron McKay (six 9s, two 8s, one 6, and one A).
