Headteacher’s Comments

Headteacher Mr Graham Davies said “Once again the superb students at YJB have excelled. I am thrilled and delighted with the performance of all the GCSE students. The results confirm the continuing success of the school and our status as a fully inclusive, high performing school. At a time when students and schools are under more pressure than ever before, it is heartening to see the young people get the rewards they deserve.

The GCSE results this year are excellent and are on a par with the record breaking results of 2013. The percentage of students achieving 5*A-C, including English and Mathematics, remains well above the Wales and Conwy average. Furthermore 70% of students have achieved at least one A*/A.

We are so pleased that our students have performed so well in these crucial areas. This consistent high performance is particularly impressive when set in the context of the turbulent educational landscape in Wales.

These results are testimony to the incredible hard work, commitment and dedication of the staff and students at the school. Everyone has worked tirelessly to achieve such outstanding success and are all to be congratulated. I am very proud of what has been achieved and know that the students thoroughly deserve these excellent results. ”
