Students Tom Challoner, Sioned Williams, Luke Nixon and Mike and Will Antony are amongst Oxbridge and medical students ready leave for their chosen universities after gaining top grades.
Twins Mike and Will both achieved excellent results with 7 A*s and 2 As between them. Mike got 3A*s and 2As achieving outstanding results in the maths step paper and will progress to read mathematics at Robinson College, Cambridge.
His brother Will has achieved 4A*s and will now go to Downing College, Cambridge to read law.
Tom Challoner was awarded 3A*s and an A as well as his Welsh Baccalaureate and steps off to studying biology at The Queen’s College Oxford University.
Sioned Williams is poised to go to King’s College London to study medicine with As in chemistry, human biology and mathematics and hearing impaired Luke Nixon from Darland has achieved the level three Welsh Baccalaureate qualification, equivalent to an A, as well as an A* in geology and As in chemistry and human biology. Luke is now heading for Cardiff University to study medicine.
“We are very proud of all our learners and wish them well,” said Tim Guy, Director of Curriculum and Standards at Yale College.
Six Yale College students are leaving with 3A*s and four A level students are going to either Oxford or Cambridge.
Three have confirmed places to study medicine and many more will successfully progress to Russell group universities including York, Cardiff, Warwick and Manchester as well as other universities across the UK.
Over 260 Yale students achieved Welsh Baccalaureate at Advanced level, enabling many to use their WB success as part of their progress to higher education.
