Cricket sensation Will Sissons celebrates outstanding GCSE results

Will Sissons

An international cricketer added to his list of accolades with an outstanding set of GCSE results.

Will Sissons, aged 16, was one of a host of pupils that achieved superb marks as results were published nationwide on Thursday, August 24.

The pupil gained six A* grades in Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Mathematics, Physics and Religious Studies as a result of his fantastic preparation ahead of his examinations.

He also managed to secure a nine and eight in English (First Language) and English Literature in accordance with the newly former grading system, in addition to a Distinction in Additional Mathematics and two As in French and History.

Will’s success follows on from brother Jack’s fantastic A-level results, which saw the outgoing Deputy Head Boy secure for A* grades and he will now head to the University of Durham to study General Engineering.

It has been another academic year to remember for the former Wales U15 cricket captain, who was part of the Llandudno side that secured the North Wales Premier Division title last season.

He also helped the school’s U16 Hockey side clinch the National Championship for the second successive year, while also being a recipient of the Sir John Henry Morris Jones Trust grant, which was set up in 1975 at the request of the former MP and GP’s will, with young people under the age of 19 from the Colwyn area invited to apply.

Head of Cricket Mike Leach, said: “Will has achieved a phenomenal amount in such a short space of time in terms of academic and sporting success, and if he continues to develop in both areas then he is sure to achieve even more in the future.”
