“ I am absolutely thrilled with these results. Our students and staff have worked incredibly hard and these excellent results are a testimony to all of their hard work. Coming hot on the heels of an excellent ESTYN inspection these results cap an outstanding year for the school. Ebbw Fawr is now in it’s 6th year of being and these results and ESTYN report mark the end of the beginning of our school, and we can all look forward to the future with confidence. I am also delighted for Ebbw Vale itself, the town needs a successful community school and we are now well on the way to becoming the school that the community deserves and can feel proud of ”
