Welcome back to pupils, parents and to staff and thank you to everyone for a real team effort in ensuring that everything has gone so well in our first week back.  It’s been an excellent first week for the 1700 pupils attending Cardiff High School this year.  It has been a pleasure to meet our new Year 7 pupils who have showed such enthusiasm, in spite of getting lost on the odd occasion, for their lessons.  The Primary Schools from which they have come should be very proud.  Equally pleasing has been meeting many new members of our Sixth Form community.  I am sure it all bodes well for another successful year at Cardiff High School.

Finally, I cannot pass up the opportunity to congratulate last years A Level students on record breaking results.  We are the biggest Sixth Form in Cardiff and last year, nearly 50% of all A Level results were either A* or A.  We also had fantastic success in getting our students into University including four to Oxbridge. At GCSE, once again we are Wales’ top performing school and this year 91.4% of all pupils achieved 5 A-C grades including English and Maths and this is testament to the hard work of pupils, parents and of course to the dedicated staff at Cardiff High School.
