“I would like to pay tribute to the pupils, staff and school governors for all of their commitment, dedication and hard work over the past year as well as parents and guardians for their constant support.

“This team effort has resulted in the best results in the school’s history and is an endorsement of the outstanding education provided by Antrim Grammar School.

“I would like to wish the Year 14 pupils all the best as they leave us and prepare for the next exciting chapter in their lives.

“They have been remarkable pupils and will continue to be successful individuals as well as wonderful ambassadors wherever their journey takes them.”
