At our Prize Night on Thursday 2 October, Mr Manning congratulated the L6 year group on a record breaking set of GCSE results. Commenting on the results he said
“Over two thirds of the year group achieved grades A or A* in at least 5 of their subjects. For a second successive year, the percentage achieved at each of the grades A*, A, B and C is the best ever, and for the first time over 70% of the grades awarded were at grade A or A*, trumping the previous record of 65% set by our current L6 in 2013. At the top A* grade it is particularly remarkable that for the second year, 3 out of every 10 grades in Strathearn is an A*. This all compares most favourably with the NI figures for girls in Grammar Schools and once again the probability of a girl in a Grammar School in NI achieving a grade A* is 50% higher if she attends Strathearn – that is value added!”
Pictured above are the 5 pupils who achieved A* grades in each of their GCSE subjects.
The girls are Dakota Armour, Emily Whiteside, Ariana Gallen, Sophie Martin and Rachel Bruce
Congratulations to all our GCSE candidates on having achieved such super results.
