Dinas Bran celebrates more A-mazing results









There were scenes of joy at the Ysgol Dinas Brân as A level students celebrated their exam results.

Overall the pass-rate at A level (grades A*-E) was an excellent 99%, with over half of all grades awarded at A*-B.
There were some outstanding individual successes. 

Charlie Hackforth, sitting his A levels a year early, achieved two A* grades in biology and history and an A grade in psychology.  Charlie will now go on to study biological sciences at St Hilda’s College, Oxford University. 

Andrew Melville, also taking his exams a year early, achieved two A* grades in maths and further maths and an A grade in physics.  He will now go onto to study Maths at Imperial College, London University. 

Joshua Jones, year 13, achieved an A* in psychology and A grades in biology and history.  He will now study Biological Sciences at Balliol College, Oxford University. 

Michael Liu did exceptionally well too achieving an A* in art and two A grades in maths and physics.  Michael will now progress to study Accounting at Manchester University.

Bethan Williams and Morgan Jones were both awarded three A grades.  Bethan will now study Business Administration at Bath University while Morgan will undertake Engineering at Warwick University.
Two other students who took their A levels a year early also excelled in their achievements. 

Elinor McSorley achieved an A*grade and two A grades and Stephen McAndrew two A grades and two B grades.

Other students who achieved two A grades or more were:
Lowri Bates A* A B,  Elizabeth Davies A* A B, Olivia Holgate A* A  B, Jason McVicar A A B C,
Nia Pierce A A B and Ceri O’Connell  A A C.
Early indicators suggest that the vast majority of students who applied to university have been successful in their applications.

A school spokesperson said: "We congratulate all the students on these fantastic results.  They have excelled themselves. 

"We wish all of them the very best in their chosen future.  A big thank you to all the staff who have taught and guided them too in these challenges and to all parents and carers for their help and support."

A county council statement says:


Early indications show approximately 98.9% of students have been successful in achieving the Level 3 threshold, which is an improvement on the previous year.

There have been some excellent individual achievements across all schools. In addition, most schools have shown an increase in the number of students gaining A* and A grades.
Councillor Eryl Williams, Denbighshire's Cabinet Lead Member for Education, said: “We would like to congratulate all students on their individual results and we wish them every success in their chosen pathway.
“The results reflect the months of hard work and dedication of students and their teachers, in preparation for the examinations.
"Education remains a top priority in the County and I am extremely pleased to see the majority of schools in Denbighshire continue to improve performance.”
