Pupils at Castle School, near Narberth, Pembrokeshire were thrilled to collect their exam results this week and discover that, between them, they had amassed an impressive set of passes. In contrast to the national average which showed a drop of 1%, students improved on their already impressive average of 90%, collectively gaining 94% passes at grades A* – C. One pupil amassed an incredible 14 GCSEs, with 11 A*s, 2 As and an even more impressive 100% in her Additional Maths exam which included A level material.
Many of the students in year 10 were encouraged to sit some exams early in those subjects they had been prepared for and were similarly rewarded, with their results reflecting the school’s overall average.
The school’s head, Su Cowell, said: “These results are even more remarkable when you compare us with the national average of 61% and take into consideration that we are a non-selective school. The pupils are to be congratulated on their impressive results. They worked extremely hard and all their revision and efforts have been rewarded”.
The school will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year and is one of two private schools in Pembrokeshire. The other, Redhill, will be opening its new senior school at Clynderwen House in September. Previously Redhill only operated a Montessori nursery and a prep school, both of which will remain at their Haverfordwest campus.
