Ysgol Dinas Bran students celebrate GCSE success

Students at Ysgol Dinas Bran have been celebrating their GCSE examination results today.

As with A Levels a week ago, this year the school has not supplied the usual commentary listing its overall performance and outstanding successes. 

In a statement it says: "It has been fantastic to see students from the school celebrating their GCSE results. We wish them every success in the future."

Denbighshire's education chief has congratulated Year 11 learners on their achievements this year's GCSEs. 

Councillor Huw Hilditch-Roberts, Denbighshire’s Cabinet Lead Member for Education, Children’s Services and Public Engagement, said: “What a year it has been for our GCSE pupils and staff. 
"They have dealt with a lot of uncertainty in very testing times.  The students have shown great resilience, maturity and courage in the way they have handled this very unique set of circumstances
“The pupils had completed the majority of their GCSE studies by the time the lockdown was introduced, but the pandemic became a real hurdle as the pupils worked towards reaching the finishing line and were unable to sit their final examinations.   
"We welcome the Welsh Government’s decision to base the results on the assessment of teachers. They are professional staff who know their pupils and are best placed to predict final grades. 
“ I wish to offer my sincerest congratulations to the GCSE class of year 2020 and commend each and every student for their efforts, commitment and dedication throughout their GCSE studies. 
"I would also like to pay tribute to the teachers, school support staff,  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 GCSE pupils moving on to A Level studies get the best possible start to their studies and to overcome any further hurdles and challenges the new term may bring.”
