The headteacher of St David’s High School in Saltney, where the overall pass rate in this year’s A-levels was 97%, has paid tribute to ‘a job well done’.
Students’ brilliant performances were reflected by the increase in the number achieving success at higher levels, with 87% of grades falling between the A* to C range.
A 100% pass rate was recorded for the following subjects: business studies, chemistry, design and technology, English language, English literature, French, geography, health and social care, history, mathematics, music, performing arts, psychology and religious education.
Headteacher Tony Davidson said: “These excellent and well deserved results will enable the majority of our students to attend the university of their first choice.
“Twelve months ago, our results showed a significant improvement and this year we have continued the trend of beating our previous best.
“I am pleased also that the proportion of students achieving higher grades has also increased.
Mr Davidson added that 96% of students who entered for the WBQ (Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification) as well as A-levels were successful at the advanced level.
He said: “Our success reflects the hard work and dedication of the students and staff and the continued support of parents.
“I congratulate everyone on a job well done.”
