Explaining this to the packed audience at Prize Night, she said: “Not every pupil co-operates. Not every pupil wants the same as I do for them but, I give my commitment, my energy and my passion to doing what is in the child’s best interest. I never give up on a child and neither do my staff.”
She reported that every child left school with a GCSE qualification, enabling access to further education, sixth forms and training courses in order to improve career opportunities.
Of the 68 pupils who were entered, almost 93% achieved five GCSE passes which, the principal pointed out, is above the NI average, with almost 80% achieving five GCSE passes including English and Maths. An increased number of pupils achieved seven GCSE’s including English and Mathematics in the top A*-C grades.
