Celebrating excellent GCSE results again in 2020
Pupils at St. Clare’s School, Porthcawl celebrated exceptional GCSE results again having significantly outperformed their peers across Wales and the UK.
Our Class of 2020 made us so proud with the award of their GCSE grades, with 51.8% at Grade 7+ (A*/A) and over 97% of grades awarded at 4+ (C+).
Headteacher, Helen Hier, said, “We are so proud of these students who have overcome immense challenges during a critical stage in their academic career. Throughout these unprecedented times our students have remained resilient and strong in both their work ethic and emotional maturity. To have achieved these results in such a unique year is testament to the hard work and dedication of our students and staff.”
Over 97% of grades achieved were 4+ (A*/C) whilst 51.8% of grades awarded were 7+ (A*/A). 31.4% of all grades at St Clare’s were 8 or 9, the latter being the equivalent of an A** denoting exceptional performance. An exceptional set of results for the small, non-selective independent school.
Our star performers
Star performers were Jaynee Winslade-Gregory (nine 9s and a 7); Iwan Cartwright (eight 9s and two 8s); Susmita Dutta (one 9, four 8s, four 7s and an A) and Agnes Pottage (three 8s and six 7s).
