Ysgol Dinas Bran students celebrate their A Level success

* Wynne Jones from Glyn Ceidiog raises a glass to his success.

Students at Ysgol Dinas Bran have been celebrating their A Level results today.

This year the school has not supplied the usual statement listing its overall performance and outstanding successes. 

In its statement it says: "It was lovely to see students from the school celebrating their A Level results earlier. We wish them every success in the future."

Denbighshire County Council has paid tribute to the "hard work and commitment" of A Level students as they pick up their results today (Thursday).

Councillor Huw Hilditch-Roberts, Cabinet Lead Member for Education, Children’s Services and Public Engagement, said: “This has been an unprecedented year for our A Level students and staff and they have dealt with a lot of uncertainty over recent months.  

"The students have shown great resilience, maturity and courage in the way they have handled this very unique set of circumstances.

“I would like to commend each and every student for their efforts, commitment and dedication throughout their A Level courses.  I must also pay tribute to the support shown by both teachers and parents/ guardians. They have been a real backbone to students over recent months, keeping a clear focus and positivity.

“Whatever the outcome and whichever paths they will be taking in the next step of their lives, I would like to wish them the very best of luck and every success on their future journey.

“Our focus from September will be on ensuring that the new generation of A Level students get the best possible start to their studies and to overcome any further hurdles and challenges the new term may bring.”

Education Minister Kirsty Williams said: "I want to send my very best wishes to everyone who received their A-level, AS, Welsh Bacc and vocational qualification grades today.
“Due to the many changes we’ve had to make this year in exceptional circumstances, you’ve had to make many sacrifices.

“But you have every reason to be proud of all the work you’ve done, which will serve you well, and proud of the determination you have shown to overcome this challenging time.  

“As announced yesterday, we have guaranteed that a learner’s final A Level grade cannot be lower than their AS grade. Students in Wales, and prospective employers and universities across the UK, can be assured that their A Level grades reflect their work and externally assessed exams.

“I hope you got the grades you’d hoped for, and you can continue with your educational journey in the autumn. Although many of you will be pleased with your results and excited for your next step, if you didn’t get what you’d hoped, there’s plenty of options & advice on Working Wales.

“Best of luck, and best wishes for the future.”
