Exam Results

I am very pleased to confirm that yet again we have achieved fantastic GCSE and A Level results.

A Level

We have had another exceptional year for A Levels with our current % A*-B figure of 46% this means that students make progress at a rate equivalent to the top 25% of all Sixth Forms and FE Colleges. 83% of all grades were at least a C grade at A Level. Our BTEC results are also incredibly strong.

In particular, we are pleased that 100% of grades achieved were between A*-E (no grade U's). This is testament to the great work the team and the hard work of the students in the Sixth Form.

The vast majority of the students received news that meant they could pursue their chosen University courses next term.


Our provisional progress data puts us ahead of predictions and has produced a high Progress 8 score of +0.37.

This means that students achieve well beyond their target greats at Holyhead compared to students of similar ability.

English - 66% of students achieved a strong pass at GCSE (Grade 5)
English - 81% of students achieved the expected Grade 4 
Attainment 8 - 44.69 
Progress 8 - +0.35 

A large number of subjects have improved upon 2017 results and our headline data is showing a higher percentage of students achieving Grade 4 and 5 in a large number of subjects.

14 subjects are in the top 25% of the country based on progress which is a fantastic achievement and meant that almost all students have been successful at gaining their place in the Sixth Form.

Overall, it has been a very positive year at both GCSE and A-Level.
