Alice Griffiths who has recently represented Wales at senior football also achieved excellent results. She said she worked hard to balance her training for the Welsh team and revision but that it was all worth it as she was so pleased with her results. Another footballer who is with Cardiff City and the school teams, Isaak Davies, also did well in his examinations.
Some younger pupils in Yr 7 passed a GCSE in Welsh which was thrilling for them.
Dr S M Mitchell, Headteacher, said:
‘I am thrilled at the results that our pupils have attained. They have worked very hard and with great commitment. I have also been impressed by the way that pupils work together and support one another which is a characteristic of their caring nature. These results are also due to the hard work of the staff. I am thrilled that so many pupils have achieved great success and we are looking forward to them returning to St John’s for continued success in their ‘A’ levels. I am extremely proud that our results have improved and extend my congratulations to our pupils and wish them continued success’.
