Following on from the success of the school’s A Level pupils last week, Antrim Grammar is delighted to report upon one of the best set of GCSE results achieved within the School.
School principal Stephen Black said: “There have been many outstanding achievements by individual pupils but equally gratifying is the overall performance of the year group in which the percentage of pupils achieving five A*-C grades and sevenA*-C grades (including English and Mathematics) significantly exceeds NI Grammar School averages.
“Once again it is very pleasing to report, at a time of increased focus on Literacy and Numeracy, that all pupils have achieved a minimum of a C grade in both English and Mathematics.
“Such performance continues to enhance our reputation throughout the community and emphasises the high quality of teaching and learning within the school.
“The results again reflect on the hard work and commitment of the pupils and the staff of the school, in addition to the support provided by their parents, and it gives us all tremendous pleasure to see staff and pupils sharing in the delight of that success in school this morning.
“We are also pleased that the Vice Chairman of the NI Assembly Education Committee Danny Kinahan MLA was in school for the morning to pass on his congratulations.”
Those achieving nine or more grades at A* or A in their GCSE subjects were: Bryce Allen, Stephen Houston, Abby Patterson, Jose Benchikh-Rodriguez, Sophie Hutchinson, Jack Rankin, Janet Bingham, Rebecca Kennedy, Daniel Todd, Carys Brown, James Mawhinney, Megan Woolley, Ben Hardy, Josh Morrison.
Mr Black added: “Special mention for exceptional performance should go to Joseph Iredale who achieved full marks in French and to Rebecca Kennedy and Philip Magowan who achieved full marks in Religious Studies.”
