Cullybackey College Goes From Strength to Strength
On the morning of Thursday 22nd August, Year 11 and Year 12 students at Cullybackey College arrived to pick up their long awaited GCSE results. For the Year 12 students, these results represent the culmination of 5 years of hard work and dedication often involving modular examinations and Controlled Assessment pieces. An extremely pleasing 73% of students were able to secure at least a grade C in their subject entries – this represents a significant increase on the previous year’s results.
Mr David Donaldson, the College Principal, was keen to highlight the many individual successes within Year 12; “At Cullybackey College our primary aim is to create opportunities for our students to succeed and that has been clearly evident today. I am delighted to congratulate our pupils for achieving results that reflect their hard work in conjunction with the professional support of our dedicated staff. In particular, I would like to acknowledge the achievement of David Atkinson who gained an outstanding 4 A* and 5 A grades, and special mention also goes to Katy Duff, Dara Borges, Peter Laverty, Rebecca Thompson, Sarah Smyth, Sarah Hanna, Jenna Lynn, Jasmine McCrory and Tamzin Murray – who all achieved a superb set of results.”
Mr Tim Manson, Vice Principal commented that, “It is really pleasing to note the continued improvement in GCSE passes at C or above within the College. This shows the consistently high performance that our students are achieving over a wide range of subjects.”
The majority of pupils will be returning to embark upon A-Level studies and the College would also like to formally wish those leaving all the very best in the future career paths they choose to follow.
