Principal, Mrs Jenny Lendrum said: “The Year 12 pupils have demonstrated commitment, determination and perserverance over the last two years and they are reaping the rewards of their hard work. It is an honour for me to celebrate today with pupils, parents, staff and governors as everyone has had a part to play in today’s wonderful results.

“I would like to pay tribute to the staff who go above and beyond academically and pastorally year upon year and to the parents who are so supportive of all aspects of school life. I am excited for all of the Year 12 pupils who are preparing now for A Level study in Antrim Grammar School and to those who are pursuing other career pathways, I wish them well.

“One thing I am sure of, is that the future is bright for all who received results today. Not only are they a credit to themselves and their parents/guardians but also to the school and I am proud of each and every one of them.”
