As a school we are very proud to be able to welcome so many students to Year 12 this year. Many students form year 11 decided to continue with their education here at Bro Hyddgen with many joining us from nearby schools. 52 students have started in the lower sixth form this September with 17 of those from either Ysgol Bro Idris, Ysgol Tywyn, Ysgol Penglais or Ysgol Ardudwy, Harlech. The total number of students in our sixth form has now reached 75 which is the largest ever sixth form here at Machynlleth.
Having such a large sixth form, is an excellent asset to both the school and the wider community. We trust these numbers are increasing once again due to the high standard of education our students are receiving with our GCSE and A-Level results a reflection of this. All of last year’s year 13 students who applied for a place at university received offers from institutions across the UK and we wish all of them every success for the future.
