Pupils celebrating results with Dr Michelle Rainey, Principal of Ballyclare High School

Brilliant Ballyclare pupils

Pupils and staff at Ballyclare High School were once again celebrating outstanding A level results in 2019.

For the third year in a row, scores across all key indicators have risen, with 99.9% of pupils securing pass grades in three or more A level subjects, and 82% of pupils recording three or more A*-C grades.

A*/A grades accounted for 43% of the total, a province-busting figure and over three-quarters of all grades were B or above.

The top student was Eoin Metcalfe with 4 A*/A grades followed by Nukul Rajpoot with 4A grades. Thirty pupils secured 3 or more A*/A grades.

Dr Michelle Rainey, Principal of Ballyclare High School said

“I am thrilled with the academic achievements of our pupils. They have worked so hard, in partnership with their teachers and with the support of their parents, to secure the grades needed for university.

“I am also proud once again to see a year group of fabulously articulate and socially accomplished young people step forward confidently to embark upon their next stage in their lives; congratulations and best wishes to you all, you are brilliant!

“Ballyclare High School has a culture of nurturing and developing potential so each child can be their best and days like today are testimony to that.”
