On Thursday morning pupils and staff at Ballyclare Secondary School celebrated a successful A Level results day.
School Principal, Mrs Kathryn Bell, was very pleased with the “positive results.”
“There were many outstanding performances and it was a joy to see so many young people achieve such positive results and fulfil their potential. The front hall was filled with happy young people and very delighted parents,” she said.
Mrs Bell paid tribute to the hard work which was put in by the pupils and the support offered by the staff throughout the year.
“This year the majority of our pupils achieved at least one top grade. Our achievements this year are on a par with many schools in the selective sector and clear evidence that with hard work and the support of dedicated teachers our young people can achieve at the very highest levels,” Mrs Bell added.
On behalf of all the staff at the school, the principal wished all the pupils every success in the future.
“Many pupils have already secured their places at university and further education colleges. Others have been successful in gaining apprenticeships and others have already entered their chosen area of employment. We wish them all continuing success as they continue on their education journey or take up their place in the world of work,” she added.
