Following last week’s A-level results, Newry High School was again celebrating today. This time it was the occasion of its GCSE results. 60% of students achieved 5 or more A*- C grades a considerable increase of 5% on last year.
There were some outstanding performances from individuals, particularly worthy of mention are:
Principal, Mr. Iestyn Brown, said, “Today is a very special day for our school and we are exceptionally proud of all our student’s achievements. Our Year 12 students have worked extremely hard during their GCSE studies in order to achieve these excellent results; living up to their potential and in some cases exceeding expectations. It is fantastic to see the delight in so many of their eyes when they see their results for the first time. The staff at Newry High work incredibly hard to ensure that every one of our students has the best possible chances to succeed and reach their full potential, so we enjoy days like this when we are able to celebrate their achievements with them. These results encourage us all to continue to work hard as a team and further develop our focus on our three core values of respect, responsibility and excellence. We look forward to welcoming back many of our Year 12 students into our sixth form in September.”
