LIMAVADY HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS EXCEL AGAIN WITH ANOTHER EXCELLENT SET OF GCSE RESULTS
Thursday 24th August was a very exciting day for the pupils of Limavady High School as they received their much-anticipated GCSE grades with many students achieving top grades in their subjects.
The results achieved today reward each and every one of the pupils for the hard work, dedication, perseverance and resilience that they have displayed during their exam years.
Mr Mornin, Principal, commented, “We are extremely proud of all of our Year 12 pupils, and it’s been a pleasure to watch them grow. Our school continues to go from strength to strength and it was a privilege to be amongst so many happy pupils this morning to share such an excellent set of results. I would like to pay tribute to the parents of each child who have worked in partnership with us to ensure that their children realise their full potential. I would like to also extend my gratitude to our partners St Mary’s Limavady and North West Regional College who have supported and contributed to our Key Stage 4 Curriculum offer. Overall, these results reflect the position of the school, one that more and more parents are choosing for their children, and reflect the school’s quest for continuous improvement. I would also to like pay tribute to the staff, of Limavady High School who have worked unbelievably hard and their tremendous commitment has made the difference for so many of our students”.
Mr Mornin continued, “It has always been our aim to create a school environment where pupils are nurtured and supported to achieve the best possible outcomes at each stage of their education, enabling them to reach their full potential whilst becoming positive contributors to the local community. The school has a long-established reputation of providing a high-quality educational experience for all young people in a supportive and caring environment. This is reflected by the results today and one of the many reasons for the growing popularity of the school over the past number of years.
I am delighted to report that 95.68% of pupils achieved 5 or more grades at A* - C which is well above the Northern Ireland average for Non-Grammar Schools. 62.59% of pupils achieved 5 or more grades at A* - C grades, including English and Mathematics which is well above the Northern Ireland average for Non-Grammar Schools.
Among the top performers were Sarah Donaghy 4A*, 2As and 2Bs; Ircot Amaglo 3A*, 4As and 2Bs; Abigail Macdonald 2A*, 4As, 1B and a C*; Emily Butcher 1A*, 5As and 3Bs; Lilly Craig 6As and 2Bs; Kathryn Montgomery 6As and 2Bs and Gemma McDaid 6As and 2Bs”.
Mr Mornin concluded, “We are delighted that yet another cohort of talented pupils has achieved an excellent set of results. Many of our pupils are now well placed to avail of our very successful Sixth Form provision in our new state-of-the-art Shared Sixth Form Centre. We are also very proud of those pupils who are continuing with their education at the local college and to those who have secured employment and apprenticeships.”
Mr Mornin would advise any pupils from the school, or any other school, who wish to enrol at Limavady High School to further their Post 16 education to contact the school on 028 77762526.
