The number of students achieving an A* - A Grade has risen to 28.3%, higher than the Welsh national average of 27% (and the UK average of 25.5%). 55. 6% of students achieved a grade A*- B, and 80.5% percent of students achieved A* - C Grades. The overall A* - E success rate was 99%, higher than the Welsh national average of 97.6%.

St David’s College is very proud to announce that six students have met their offers for Oxbridge.

Overall, over 400 students have been accepted onto their university places, with over a third of students going to Russell Group Universities, including University College London, Edinburgh University and Cardiff University. Many others are going on to exciting apprenticeship and work placements. We wish all our leavers the very best of luck with their futures.  

A message from the Principal:

“We are really proud of the achievements of all our students. We are confident that with these results and the skills that they have developed during their time at St David's, our learners will be prepared to face the challenges and opportunities ahead.

This year’s success is just reward for the hard work and dedication of the students, teaching staff and support team at the College.

In just a few weeks we will be welcoming our next cohort of students to St David’s. We continue to work hard to maintain the high level of achievement students of the College have enjoyed.”
