We are delighted to report that the school has achieved its highest ever GCSE performance this year which has continued the journey of improvement made by Rhosnesni over the last two years. 95% of our students gained 5 or more GCSE passes with 83% achieving the Level 2 threshold (5 GCSE A*-C grades). there has been significant improvements in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science.
Headteacher, Mr Nic Harrison said, ‘The school has made significant overall improvement in the standard of achievement at numerous levels at both Key Stage 3 and 4 and builds upon the previous successes in recent years and it is our goal to ensure that we continue to improve even further in the future. I wish to extend my sincere congratulations to all students who have worked tremendously hard to gain their qualifications and to wish them every success in the future. There have been some outstanding results this year with some impressive individual achievements. 18 students, 10% of year 11 achieved 17 or more GCSE’s. Congratulations to Joesph Boycott who achieved success in Year 9 with an A* in Maths which was followed in Year 10 with an A in Statistics and in Year 11, Joesph was the highest achieving student.
These improvements to academic results along with the continued improved attendance in 2016 reflect the continued determination and commitment of the school to ensure the children at Ysgol Rhosnesni achieve their full potential and beyond.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank staff who have worked so hard to enable the students to achieve their results and the parents and Governors who have provided support to enable our students to do so well’.
This year saw a new initiative with an event shelter set up at the front of the school for the Youth Service, Coleg Cambria, Careers Wales and the MPCT working together with school staff to ensure that all students had immediate access to specialist services and advice. In previous years the support was available in the GCSE results area but this year we separated the services out to provide a one stop facility which for some students provided them with the specialist direction they needed.
The Chair and Vice Chair of Governors, Mr D Hughes and Mrs L Closs were on hand to congratulate students along with school staff and the Senior Leadership Team.
We are always proud of the achievements of students and this year is no exception. Congratulations to students in Year 10 and Year 11 who have worked so hard.
