Christ College Brecon has announced its GCSE pupils achieved 46% 9-7 grades and 89% 9-6. The college follows the English curriculum meaning grades are scored 1-9, with a 9 being the equivalent of an A**.

Pupils who performed particularly well include Sophie Williams from Cradoc and Dylan Rees from Brecon who both achieved all 9’s. In addition, Oliver Thomas from Pembrokeshire achieved 7 x 9’s and Matthew Price from Hay-on-Wye achieved all 8’s and 9’s, equivalent of straight A*.

Head of Christ College, Gareth Pearson, said: “We are incredibly proud of all of our students for their hard work during a disrupted year. All our pupils managed to largely complete their GCSE courses and were assessed rigorously. As a result, they are very well prepared for the next stage of their education.”
