Another A-mazing year for Ysgol Dinas Bran



* Dinas Bran students celebrate their A level results.

Delighted Year 13 students celebrated excellent A level results at Ysgol Dinas Bran today.

100% of entrants achieved the prestigious level three threshold (two A level passes or more); well over half of all grades awarded were at A*-B and more than three quarters were higher level passes.

Among many successful students were George Wort who achieved an incredible five A* grades in Chemistry, ICT, Maths, further Maths and Physics.  

George will now go onto study Computer Science at Jesus College, Cambridge University.  

Another high-achiever was Iestyn Watkin who was awarded two A* grades in Maths and Physics, an A grade in Chemistry and a B grade in English Language. 

Iestyn also achieved an A grade in the Extended Project.  He will now progress to study Natural Sciences at Girton College, Cambridge University.

Wilf Wort, brother of George, achieved an A* grade and three A grades and Polly Harrison three A grades and a C grade.  

Wilf has successfully secured a place at Durham University to study English Literature and Polly will take up History at Keele University.

The vast majority of students who applied achieved their first-choice place at university – a real testament to the quality of their results.  Headteacher Martyn Froggett said: “We congratulate all students on their tremendous results.  

"They have worked exceptionally hard and can be proud of their achievements.  We wish them all the very best for the future.  

"A big thank you too to the staff and parents who have supported them.  It is a great year for the school – to achieve a 100% pass-rate is simply fantastic!”

A county council spokesperson said: "Early indications show that the approximate A Level (Level 3) pass rate at Denbighshire’s six secondary schools in 2014 shows an improvement of 2% up from 96.8% to 98.8% and there have been some excellent individual achievements across all schools.

"In addition to the A Level results, 99.4% students were awarded the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification's Advanced Diploma."  Councillor Eryl Williams, Denbighshire's Cabinet Lead Member for Education, said: “We would like to congratulate all students on their individual results.  "Education remains a top priority in Denbighshire and I am extremely pleased to see our A level results continuing to rise."

 
* Celebrations all round.
