Thursday, March 21, 2019


The name might have changed, but the academic achievements of Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda pupils remain as high as ever. The first Sixth Form to sit examinations as Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda pupils has, yet again, seen some of the best individual A-Level results in the school’s 30 year history.

85% of all pupils who sat A Level examinations this year have secured at least 2 A*-C grades.

In addition, Tyler Berry, Darcie Phillips, Emily James, Carys Woolley, Isobel Evans, Matthew Langford, Caitlyn Fitzpatrick, Evie Connolly, Lowri Rees-Owen and Carys Bishop gained at least 1 A* / A grade each.

All our pupils are now well prepared to undertake the next stage of their learning pathways and for many, this means commencing university courses this September, studying a wide range of subjects across the UK – from International Politics to Nursing and Music Engineering.

Year 12 students have also attained a very promising set of AS results. It was a clean sweep for Casey Nash, Ellie Smith and Cerys Swain, who secured A grades in every subject.

For Head, Rhian Morgan Ellis, these results crown an excellent year at Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhondda in all fields. She praised the continuous progress and dedication, commitment and diligence on behalf of pupils, parents and staff at the school.

“We are so proud that all our pupils have secured a place at their university of choice and are prepared not only with the required academic qualifications to succeed at university, but also with the wealth of holistic experiences that prepare them for life. Our pupils benefit form the exceptional collaborative working between themselves, staff, parents, and our wider community. It is this spirit that drives the school. Llongyfarchiadau mawr i bawb a diolch am bob cyfraniad”

On behalf of the Board of Governors, Chair Mr John Bryant said, “It is so pleasing that each pupil has been accepted into his or her university of choice. This achievement reflects the hard work put in by the pupils and their teachers and is fully deserved. I am confident that all the pupils will settle into university life very quickly. Congratulations also to year 12 who have achieved remarkable results in their AS examinations.”
