Penybont 6th Form College is celebrating the fantastic success of its record-breaking A-Level results that were revealed yesterday and is set to be at the top of the table in the Bridgend County Borough.

A staggering 29.3% of students received an A*- A grade while 83.8% secured A*-C results – the grade received for A* – E was an impressive 99.4%, which at the moment, looks like it has succeeded the national comparator.

Kahlio also won Learner of the Year in Collaborative Courses at Bridgend College’s Annual Awards ceremony back in June 2019.

Lillie-Mai Jones, another student at Penybont 6th Form College, has been accepted to the prestigious London Studio Centre to study BA(HONS) Theatre Dance, having gained an A grade in her A level Dance alongside her other qualifications.
