Mr J Sheerin, Principal
GCSE and A-Level ‘success for all’ at Lisnagarvey
The pupils, parents and staff at Lisnagarvey High School have had two weeks of celebration as sixth and fifth form students received their A-Level and GCSE results.
Mr Sheerin, principal of Lisnagarvey, reflected on the continuing success of the school, with regards examination results. He commented: “This is the third year in a row that the school has hit the top category of performance in 5 GCSEs including English and Maths. Therefore, yet again, we are in 1st quartile of the very highest performing secondary schools in Northern Ireland. The English results are again exceptional, with 91% of the GCSE English students achieving grades A*-C. Maths results are once again extremely pleasing; with the results being 10% above the Northern Ireland average.
Similarly, I am very pleased that our A-Level students achieved results which were above the Northern Ireland average for 3 A levels at grades A –C.
The top student in Year 12 was Jamie Nicholson, who achieved 12 GCSE grades of 5A*s, 6As, 1C. The high level of achievement has meant a very large return to sixth form, including many students, who had the points to access local grammar schools, deciding instead to remain at Lisnagarvey.
At A-Level, our top student was head girl Courtney Wright who achieved an A, an A and B grade. Overall, the A level results will see over 60% of our students able to continue their studies at the University of their choice.”
Chairman of the Board of Governors Dr Sproule also praised the contribution of the school community, as well as the staff. He said: “Once again, we are very pleased with the GCSE and A level results. On behalf of the staff of Lisnagarvey, I extend my thanks to the supportive parents, carers and hard-working students who played a pivotal role in this success. The students are supported by our exceptionally hard-working staff, who create the conditions and ethos where our value of “success for all” can be achieved.”
