Thursday 23 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; indeed 100% of pupils achieved five or more A*-G grades.
A total 84% of pupils achieved five or more A*-C grades which is an increase of 14% on last year’s result. There was also an 11% increase in the percentage of pupils gaining five or more A*-C grades, including English and maths.
Principal, Mr Darren Mornin said
“I believe the results achieved are a reflection of the high quality teaching and learning that takes place in our school.
“I would also like to pay tribute to the pupils for their hard work and commitment; today is the reward for their ambition and application”.
“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 apparent by the results today and one of the many reasons that has led to the popularity of our school growing over the past number of years.”
Mr Mornin continued
“Staff have worked unbelievably hard and their tremendous commitment has made the difference for so many of our students.
“I would also like to pay tribute to the parents of each child who have worked in partnership with us over the past five years to ensure that their child realises their full potential.”
“We are delighted that yet another group of talented pupils has achieved a great set of results. Many of our pupils are now well placed to avail of our very successful sixth form provision. 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”.
Amongst the top performers were Ross Barr who achieved five As and four Bs; Clarissa Bell one A*, three As and five Bs; John Clyde four As, three Bs and one C and Lucy Holmes four As, four Bs and one C.
