Positive performance from Priory
It was another record-breaking year for GCSE students at Priory Integrated College in Holywood on Thursday 24 August 2017.
Almost 81% of the year group achieved five or more A* - C grades, 10% higher than last year and the best results ever for Priory students.
Delighted students celebrated with their teachers, parents and carers, with many now making plans to begin A -level courses in sixth form at Priory in September.
We are so proud of all of our students this year,
said Principal, Jacqui Magennis.
These are fantastic results for an all-ability, non-selective college like ourselves. Our students from right across the academic spectrum have done really well.
It's also really encouraging to see our GCSE results improve year on year, especially in the core GCSEs of English, mathematics and science. The results compare very favourably with the Northern Ireland average for A* - C passes in all three of these crucially important subjects, as well as in many other subjects.
The hard work of pupils and staff has paid off handsomely once again and we're delighted that so many of our Year 12 pupils have achieved the grades they were aiming for.
