Celebrating excellentGCSE results again in 2021

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 2021 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 Grade 4+ (C+).

Over 99% of grades achieved were 4+ (A*/C) whilst 56.8% of grades awarded were 7+ (A*/A).  31.2% 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 Macy Campbell (eight 9s and an 8); Carolina Marques (six 9s, an 8 and three 7s); Ella Mugford (an A*, a 9, five 8s and three 7s) and Izzy Lindley (an A*, a 9, four 8s and three 7s).

Transfer to us for your GCSEs

St Clare’s delivers the English curriculum for GCSE examinations where the qualification grade is awarded from 9 to 1. Grade 9 being the equivalent of A** which has  given our most talented pupils the opportunity to attain this most prestigious grade. Although University might seem a long way off when deciding on GCSEs, choices at this stage can directly impact on options when it comes to A-Levels and, in turn when applying to University.

Benefit from an uninterrupted education

This year saw the real benefit of St Clare’s Remote Learning Programme as students continued to receive one-to-one pedagogical and pastoral support during lockdown with a full interactive, structured timetable of virtual lessons. St Clare’s unique, individualised provision identifies with each of its pupils to find their personal path to success.

Exceptional A-Level results

These excellent GCSE results follow our exceptional A-Level results where students achieved 61.4% at A*/A and 86.4% at A*/B with 100% of students securing their first choice university and a 100% pass rate yet again.

Helen Hier, Headteacher

I am so proud of all our students. Despite life as they know it having completely changed during lockdowns, they have shown incredible resilience and adaptability, achieving results which clearly give them the opportunity to fulfil their life aspirations. These fantastic results are testimony to both their hard work and the support and dedication of their teachers, who have remained committed to maintaining the highest standards of education. It is a pleasure to celebrate with them all today.
