More Brynteg pupils achieve their chosen direction
By Richard Martin, Assistant Headteacher, Brynteg School
At Brynteg, we have a sixth form of around 380 students. This figure has been consistently high for a number of years and we also attract approximately 15 students annually from other schools who join the sixth form in Year 12. We offer over 30 AS and A level courses with a small number of these being offered in collaboration with the local college.
In addition, a small number of vocational courses are offered, most recently, BTEC Sport and Engineering. We had our first Alps reports for the summer examination series of 2014. Before we issued the first Alps report, training was given to the senior and middle leaders of the school as to the methods and processes involved and, more importantly, how the reports were to be interpreted and used as a basis for improvement.
