Celebrations as high schools in Rhyl improve

Reporter:

RHYL’S two high schools have improved under a Welsh Government benchmark banding data.

Rhyl High School has moved up two places and is now rated in the second band while Blessed Edward Jones High School has climbed one place and made it into the second band.

Ysgol Glan Clwyd in St Asaph also graduated one place to the second band while Prestatyn High School remains in band two.

Bandings are based on the performance of schools in GCSE exam results, progress, amount of free school meals and absence levels.

Those in Band 1 are said to show good overall performance and progress and those in Band 5 show weak performance and progress relative to other schools.

Rhyl High School was put into special measures in November, 2008, after Estyn inspectors exposed major failings.

The school was removed from special measures in August 2010.
