Students at MCS who sat the new reformed GCSEs this summer achieved excellent results across the curriculum, especially at the higher grades.

In the new WJEC GCSE Science exams of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, more than 40% of grades were at A*/A%. There was similar success across the curriculum. 52% of all grades in History were at A*/A and in RS ,54% of all grades at A*/A. In the Performing and Expressive Arts Faculty, 62% of all grades in Music were at A*/A and in Drama 41%. In Information Technology, 73% of grades were at A*/A. In the new Skills Challenge Certificate, 90% of students achieved at national level. A superb result. These excellent results have been achieved through the hard work, determination and ambition of students, parents and staff.

With all this success, it is the individual stories of personal endeavour to achieve the very best that reveal the resilience of our students. Nearly 60 students achieved 5 or more grades at the highest level of A*/A, with many at A*/A in every subject.

Mr Davies, the Headteacher spoke of his enormous pride in students and staff who have had to cope with the new reformed GCSEs alongside being on a building site. “Our wonderful new school building opens this September. It is an incredible building with state-of-the-art facilities for learning. I would encourage the whole community to come and look round during our Open Evening and Open Days.”
