The students at Edmund Rice College were praised after 93 per cent of the boys achieved five or more good GCSE grades.

Mr Friel, the Principal said: “I am delighted with the results and for the boys, my fulsome congratulations to them. I thank them, and very importantly all the staff in the school, on their hard work and dedication. Many of the boys will now return for A Level study.

“The school offers a broad range of Post 16 courses and a limited number of places remain available for external entrants.

“Our A Level results last week were also outstanding with 100 per cent of the boys passing at least two A Levels, 92 per cent achieving three A Level passes and 62 per cent achieving A Levels at grade C or better.”
