Newtown High School said its GCSE results were “good” as pupils celebrated their achievements today.

Specific details on the school’s GCSE achievements are yet to be published and Powys County Council will reveal the county’s overall standing later today.

The school normally states its results on the day in terms of numbers achieving A to C grades. The school said in a statement “there is more to do.”

“Students at Newtown High School are celebrating success in the new GCSE examinations released this morning.

“The school reported good results in Mathematics and English in Newtown and Presteigne alongside a wide range of other subjects. In addition, its More Able and Talented provision has once again led to students in Years 9 and 10 achieving excellent GCSE results in a range of subjects.”

Headteacher Mr G Harkness said: “We are very proud of the achievements of our students, These results represent a great start to the new GCSEs. We know there is more to do, but we will build on these results.

“The results are the first ones in a new era of examinations and we look forward to the summer of 2018 when we will be able to extract some meaningful comparative data.”

Chair of Governors Mr P Hough said: “This really is a tremendous set of results for a large numbers of students. They and the whole staff team have worked incredibly hard to achieve them. Our congratulations and best wishes for the future go to each and every student, many of whom are returning to join us in our sixth form to continue their studies.”
