This year the outcomes were a reflection of the hard work and dedicated study of all the students in the cohort.

As in previous years, St Louis students excelled in the top-grade bands of A*/A grades with many attaining 9/10 A* straight across a range of subjects.

Mr Rafferty, Principal, was full of praise for the students who, he said “Had to overcome months of uncertainty regarding the assessment process; periods of online learning and, for many students, extended self-isolation periods where normal class routines were disrupted. Despite all these challenges, our students really engaged with their teachers and today’s results are proof of their quality and resilience.”

Straight ‘A’ GCSE students: Katie Bonnes, Ava McAleese, Aoife McCloskey, Eimear O’Neill and Aoife Murray.

Mr Rafferty went on to pay tribute to the teaching staff who - “Through dedication and a student-centred approach, supported the grades with the subject evidence materials. Once again, our staff have reflected the ethos of the school to ensure each student meets their

full potential.”

The class of 2021 can now progress to A-Level study with a fantastic academic profile and hopefully return to normal high-quality learning and teaching experiences as the COVID measures in schools are relaxed.

As ever, we are so proud of our students, staff and parents in the results achieved and with continued excellence in pastoral care and academic learning experiences, the future is bright for the class of 2021.”
