Dear Parent/ Carer,
We would like to share our good news with you. Brynteg has now been placed in the top category for each of the elements that make up the National Standards Categorisation.
Whilst National School Categorisation is just one means of assessing a school’s performance, I am delighted to inform you that Brynteg has been placed within the top category for each judgement. In essence it confirms that Brynteg is amongst the top performing schools in Wales.
Within the system schools are categorised according to KS4, (GCSE) performance data reported as the Standards Group. Two additional judgements are made on the school’s Capacity to Improve and also the school’s Support Category which represents the level of support the school required by the Consortium.
Post 16 outcomes at the school also remain very impressive. The vast majority of pupils leaving Year 13 at the end of 2015 gained a place at their first choice university. Whilst ALPS, which is a data base incorporating schools from England and Wales, places 6th Form outcomes at the school within the top 25% of schools.
Partnership working is without doubt a key factor in our school’s success, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the pupils, staff and governing body for their contribution in ensuring that all of our pupils have the opportunity and support to achieve successful outcomes.
D H Jenkins
