Following the highest A/A* results last week for A Level students, GCSE students at Ysgol Eirias have once again followed in the celebrations of excellent results! Science and Modern Foreign Languages in particular have cemented the status of the school as Lead School for Science and MFL in the region with excellent results.
Technology subjects have excelled this year, in particular Art, Textiles and Child Development where all students gained grade C or above. Nearly all PE students gained grade C or above and excellent resuts were seen in Welsh, Music and ICT. Of particular note is the success of the relatively new Skills Challenge certificate in the new Welsh Baccalaureate where nearly all students in the year passed the course.
All subject areas across school have proven to reach the high standards required enabling students to access the courses they need to continue their journey whether that be continuing in education or moving into the world of work.
Ysgol Eirias is extremely proud of the curriculum offered where students are accessing an extensive range of subjects that meet a variety of interests and needs.
A number of students have achieved success despite challenging personal circumstances or significant learning difficulties over the last couple of years due to the care and support offered across the school. Individualised learning programmes and alternative curriculum provision have ensured that students can reach or exceed their potential through the varying routes offered.
Of particular mention is Rebecca Ganley who has been involved with the GB Wheelchair Basketball Squad, as well as Iwan Davies and Hollie Williams; all three students were presented with the David Lysak award for positivity in the face of adversity.

Bethan and Emily Hanlon achieved 4A*s, 16 As and 4 Bs between them,
