Eirias Sixth Form Students Keeping the Trend Going!

Following the accolade of once again being in the Sunday Times Top Ten A Level Schools for 2021-22, Ysgol Eirias has shown why it deserves repeated placement.

This year, sixth form students at Ysgol Eirias have exceeded previous record results in many areas. Outstanding results include some subject areas gaining very high numbers of A* and A including French, Maths, Further Maths, PE and Physics and exceptional results in many subject areas where high percentages of the classes gained A*-B, including Art, Economics, English Language, History, and Skills Challenge Certificate (formerly Welsh Bacc).

Students were delighted with their results and the vast majority of students secured their first choice of destination. This year, there are a high number of students entering demanding and diverse courses and futures including:

  • Millie Punshon (4 A*s) going to Oxford to read English Language and Literature;
  • Ishan Mistry (4 A*s) going to Aerospace Engineering at Bristol.

Students achieving exceptional results of all A*s and As include:

  • Twins Sandy Moore (Physics at Edinburgh) and James Moore (Chemical Engineering at Edinburgh);
  • Bethany Morgan reading Liberal Arts at Queens University, Belfast;
  • Joe Wilkinson reading Physics at University of Birmingham;
  • Oliver Percival going to Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough;
  • Lois Evans – Biomedical Sciences;
  • Rowan Graham-Jones (Natural Sciences at Durham);
  • Seren Woodall (Mathematics at Edinburgh).

Success continues with students achieving all As and going onto diverse courses, including:

  • Elen Edwards who has been accepted into the prestigious Italia Conti
  • Sam Ritchie who will be studying Computer Games Design at Staffordshire.

Other diverse courses include

  • Oshi Adey-Davies going to Warwick to read Politics, Philosophy and Economics;
  • Ben Archer going to Loughborough to read Aeronautical Engineering;
  • Callia Holliday studying Events Management at Liverpool John Moores
  • Darcie Simmonds who will be studying Law at Cardiff.

There are also a number of students who have been successful in securing places in Medicine for this year, after completing their A Levels last year including Ali Al Rawi, Emily Morley and Sara Matareed.

Other students will be enjoying courses such as Izabel Hughes in Film Studies & Production, Kyla Bourne, Tom Chan in Adult Nursing, Chloe Chen in Fashion Design, Ebony Gizzi and Bethan Jeremy in Primary Education, Erin Rutledge in Physiotherapy, Oliver Williams in Paramedic Science and Zoe Sanchez Ward who achieved AABB after joining us from Spanish Education – she will be studying Biomedcial Sciences at Manchester.

We are proud of all our students and their achievements this year. They have worked conscientiously and fully deserve their success.

Headteacher, Mrs Sarah Sutton said: "I am so proud of the achievements of these talented and conscientious young people – the stars of our future. It has been a great pleasure to work alongside such dedication – from both students and staff.”

Mrs Sutton will be leaving at the end of August after a long career at Ysgol Eirias and wishes all at the school the very best of luck for the future.
