Banbridge Academy pupils have once again produced impressive GCSE results. Of the 192 pupils who sat GCSE examinations this year, 57.1% of all entries resulted in the top grades A*/A, and when B Grades are included this figure rises to 84.8%.
Principal Mr McLoughlin said
“These results were achieved through the talent, industry and commitment of our pupils, supported and encouraged by parents who today can feel justifiably proud of these accomplishments.
“We are delighted for all our pupils as these results reflect tremendous strength in depth and we congratulate our young people on their outstanding achievements and wish them well for the future.
“The academic attainment of our young people involves a partnership and I want to pay tribute to my colleagues in our primary schools who have created the foundation for the success our pupils enjoy today.
“Once again the examination results reflect the excellent standards of teaching and learning that exist in the Academy and I pay tribute to the professionalism of my colleagues.”
A total of 49 pupils obtained nine A* or A grades and an impressive 14 pupils obtained eight or more A*s: Abbie Cochrane, Peter Coughlin, Joel Cromie, Eve Elliott, Rose Gray, Amy Hampton, Ethan Hanley, Leah Henning, Elizabeth Little, Katie Rutherford, Francesca Scappaticci Emma Telford, Nadia Traynor and Jennifer Whiteside.
