Tonypandy Community College is celebrating its final year of A-level examinations with another set of outstanding results from all students.
An impressive 100 per cent of students gained their first-choice course at university following an unprecedented number of unconditional offers.
This year’s A-Level results not only mark the end of Post-16 education on the site, but also the end of the College before its transformation into the 3-16 education facility called Ysgol Nantgwyn.
Headteacher of Tonypandy Community College Nathan Prygodzicz said: “This year’s results are testament to the exceptionally hard work of the students and the excellent tutelage by teachers throughout the College
“Staff, students and parents must be congratulated on their sustained hard work over the year. We simply could not have wished for our Post-16 provision to end on a higher note.”
Students are following a wide range of courses at university including police science, English literature, performing arts and sport.
All year 13 students achieved the Level 3 threshold of at least two A-level qualifications and each received the Welsh Baccalaureate Skills Certificate.
Head of Post 16 at the College Tatum Tonge added: “We are all immensely proud of our students as they received such outstanding A-level qualifications. We really couldn’t have wished for a better final set of results at the College.”
Every student achieved at least one A or A* grade and 35 per cent of all grades were either an A or A*.
Mr Prygodzicz added: “An enormous amount of people have been associated with our school over the generations because of the pivotal role it has played in nurturing the futures of an entire community.
“The opening of Ysgol Nantgwyn will provide an exciting and new chapter in the history of the town and we look forward with great anticipation for the new term.
“As we celebrate our A-level achievements, we can also look forward to an exciting future for education provision in the mid Rhondda.”
