First-choice university destinations secured by Year 13
August 19, 2021

Every Year 13 pupil at Rydal Penrhos managed to attain their first-choice university destination following an incredible set of A Level results.

Rydal Penrhos has placed a strong emphasis on university preparation throughout Years 12 and 13 in addition to their academic ethos and varied extra-curricular provision, which has resulted in every pupil getting into their top higher-education choice in 2021.

Many of our Year 13 achieved places at Russell Group universities, which is a testament to their incredible ability to adapt throughout changing times and the strong work ethic from pupils and the staff constantly steering them in the right direction.

Rydal Penrhos prepares each pupil for the next step. This can be a daunting prospect, but the pressure is relieved considerably by the school’s committed and caring teaching staff.

With specific lessons regarding applications, the assessment process and the best possible destinations, Year 12 and 13 are given every essential piece of information ahead of some important decisions regarding their future.

Securing their first-choice universities is thanks to an exceptional set of A Level results from the Year 13 cohort this summer, which were the highest percentages in the school’s history.

A total of 70.5% attained a pass rate at A*-A, which is the highest in the school’s history since the introduction of the A* grade and represents an increase of 20.3% year on year.

Those achieving A*-B grades stood at 84.1% – a rise of 9.9% – with 92% of pupils achieving A*-C grades as a result of their efforts.

This is an increase of 2.1% from the record-breaking A*-C mark set in 2020.

Rydal Penrhos’ pass rate (A*-E) remains at 100%, which is the seventh time since 2000 that the school has achieved this feat.

We could not be prouder of our 2021 Year 13 cohort and wish them the very best of luck moving forward.
