“Everybody associated with Treorchy Comprehensive School is immensely proud and delighted that 100% of Year 11 pupils achieved recognised qualifications this year, so vital to them as they take their next steps in education in our brand new sixth form facilities. We are also particularly pleased with the number of pupils that achieved an A*-C grade in both English and Mathematics. This demonstrates the hard work of the pupils and the positive relationships that exist between them and the staff who are constantly committed in their effort to provide our learners with the best opportunities to achieve their full potential.  We are all very proud of the pupils at the school and look forward to working with them as they enter our vibrant and consistently successful sixth form”.
