The headmaster, Mr Martyn Morris said “The British disease is that we all too often find fault where there is none and try to put ourselves down. After the outcry in the national press last week that the 22nd annual increase in A level pass rates showed that the exam is getting easier, we had on Monday the opposite accusation that the education system is failing because the proportion of students achieving a grade G pass has dropped this year by a point or two. It is ridiculous. Let’s look at the positive side. The education system in the valley is doing an excellent job in giving our young people the understanding, skills and knowledge to go on to the next stages in their lives. At BRGS we had the biggest GCSE group in the school’s history. We have maintained the high standards we have worked so hard to achieve over the last few years and I want to thank parents as well as teachers for their unstinting efforts.”
