Congratulations to all Mary Immaculate High School pupils today on receiving their GCSE results. Headteacher, Huw Powell said “We are very proud of our pupils in what has been an extremely difficult time. It was fantastic to see them all again today and be able to celebrate with them. I am full of admiration for the resilience they have shown. We have an exceptional team of dedicated staff who are passionate about what they do and provide outstanding care, support and guidance to our students. Despite the Coronavirus impacting upon lessons, learners were able to complete their studies in lockdown thanks to the actions of caring staff using innovative technology, video conferencing and online platforms.”

Both intend to go on and study Higher Education at St David’s College and Cardiff and the Vale College.

Other notable performances included Louie Cardinale and Zia Vella who achieved over 7 A or A* grades.
In the last Inspection, Mary Immaculate received an excellent inspection report with ESTYN commenting on the exceptional progress made and the clear and persistent focus on pupil achievement. The school was also recognised as a centre of excellence and has supported other schools locally and regionally in teaching, learning and leadership.
Headteacher, Huw Powell went to say “However, today we need to focus entirely on our wonderful young people who have done themselves proud. I would also like to thank all the teachers, parents and carers for their support. Finally, we wish all our students every success in the future and look forward to tracking their achievement through Post 16 education, further study and their future careers. “
