A level Results 2017

By Ballyclare High School on 24 August, 2017

100% of pupils at Ballyclare High School secured pass grades in three or more A level subjects this year, affording the majority entry into their first choice university course or place of employment.

Two pupils, Olivia Fleming and Christian Montgomery, achieved 4 A * grades.  Olivia will now join her brother Aaron at Cambridge as she begins her undergraduate study in natural sciences at Girton College while Christian Montgomery moves to Edinburgh University to study medicine.  Following his 3 A grades, Andrew Moore has won a prestigious Music Scholarship to Royal Holloway, London.

Dr Michelle Rainey, Principal of Ballyclare High School said: “Once again, our pupils have achieved outstanding results which is the result of much personal endeavour and commitment by all.  Our school has a culture of nurturing and developing potential and this is reflected in today’s results, with more than 80% of pupils in almost three quarters of all subjects securing a grade A*-C.

“We are very proud of all our pupils some of who have faced challenges along the pathway of their study and yet they have worked diligently to overcome adversity to achieve their best.

“May I congratulate all our pupils, parents and staff who have worked so hard to help secure the grades needed for university places, further education or employment. May I also offer my best wishes to our young people as they embark upon new challenges and adventures,” she added.
