Staff and students at St David’s High School in Saltney are celebrating excellent GCSE examination results this year.

97% of students in Year 11 achieved five or more GCSE passes at grades A* to G and 74% of the cohort achieved the Welsh Level 2 threshold of five GCSE passes at grades A*–C.

Within this, 57% of students achieved five GCSE passes including mathematics and English and 74% of the year group achieved the Level 2 Welsh Baccalaureate Intermediate Diploma.

Lower down the school, 68% of 14-year-old students in Year 9 achieved a GCSE grade of A* to C in personal and social education.

Headteacher Tony Davidson said: “Students and staff are very pleased and so am I. You don’t achieve these sort of results by chance - it’s down to effort, determination and commitment. Everyone has worked hard and done their best and the successes are well deserved.

“Results in English, mathematics and science place us well above the local authority and national average.

“Students of all abilities have approached their GCSE examinations with considerable energy and determination, and teaching staff have provided excellent support and guidance. The support of parents has been outstanding.

“These excellent results will enable most of our students to proceed to the next stage of education, training or employment as planned. I am pleased that so many students will be staying with us in the sixth form to study at AS and then A level.”

Outstanding performers this year included: Kieran Brown (4As and 4Bs),Ryan Davidson (9As and 1A*),Jack Davies (3As, 6 Bs), Katie Egerton (6As and 4 Bs), Olivia Jones (8A*s and 1A), Katie Latham (1A*, 7 As and 3Bs) and Aleksandra Rzeszutek (2A*s, 5 As and 2 Bs).
