Stanwell students continue to excel and this year’s A Level examination results are once again outstanding.  42 per cent of all grades achieved were A* or A grades. Of particular note, students studying Mathematics were awarded 24 A* grades in a total of 53 A* grades for Stanwell students (10% of entry). Over two thirds achieved A* to B grades at A2 level; additionally, 165 students achieved the Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate qualification.

40 students achieved 3 A grades or better at A2 level with the top 11 students achieving 4 A grades or better:

  • Owen Davies (4 A* grades)
  • Jack Law (3 A* grades and 2 A grades)
  • Martin Boden (3 A* grades and 1 A grade)
  • Elizabeth Elder (3 A* grades and 1 A grade)
  • Jordan Ford (3 A* grades and 1 A grade)
  • Tom Harry (3 A* grades and 1 A grade)
  • Sam Pena-Taylor (2 A* grades and 2 A grades)
  • Megan Rourke (2 A* grades and 2 A grades)
  • Jack Yeo (1 A* grade and 3 A grades)
  • Jack Kinnersley (4 A grades)
  • Alice Davies (4 A grades)

This year the average points score per pupil for the Year 13 cohort (181 students) is 1148 points, which exceeds four A grades for every student.  This is the highest ever achieved by Stanwell pupils following the very successful introduction of the Advanced Level Welsh Baccalaureate.

Particularly pleased with the students’ achievements was the Head of Maths, Miss Emma Murphy, where 50 of the 71 candidates (70%) achieved A* or A grades.


Mr Derek Jones, Headteacher, commented that “Pupils have recognised the importance of hard work and their commitment has been well rewarded. The support given by parents and staff, combined with the efforts of the students, has ensured pupils fulfil their potential and we are delighted so many Stanwell students have been rewarded with top grades.”

Mr Robin Relph, Head of Sixth Form, stated “At a time when there is so much competition for University places this has been our most successful year ever with the Welsh Baccalaureate enabling so many of our students to qualify for their chosen higher education courses. We congratulate all members of Year 13 on their outstanding achievements and wish them continued success in everything they do in the future.”
