Simon Budgen, Headteacher of Hawarden High – has said he’s delighted with the high levels of success achieved by the Year 13 students in their A Level exams this year.
The school achieved an overall pass rate of 98% with 66 A* and A grades were awarded, a total of 350 exams were sat and over half of all grades received were A*, A or B.
Mr. Budgen said:
“There has been a ten percent improvement on last year’s headline Level 3 Threshold figures with a very pleasing proportion of higher level grades also being awarded; over half of all grades were A*, A or B and three quarters of grades achieved at A*-C”.
It is also pleasing to see the results of the AS examinations with one in ten students of the Year 12 cohort achieving at least three A grades – something which bodes well for next year.”
The school head added:
“A number of students have been singled out for particular mention but all students and their teachers should be praised for the outstanding efforts.”
