Banbridge Academy once again achieved outstanding A Level results with an impressive 85% of pupils achieving 3 grades A*- C and 46% of all entries were A*/A grades. Out of the 162 pupils who entered these examinations 48 obtained a minimum of 3 A grades or better, with 7 pupils achieving at least 3 A* grades and 17 pupils obtaining at least 2 A* grades.
Mr McLoughlin, Headmaster, commented, “These phenomenal results are testimony to the endeavours of all of our pupils, the commitment of the teaching staff and the support of parents. We congratulate all of our pupils on their fantastic achievements and wish them well as they begin the next stage of their careers. These results would not have been obtained, however, without the dedication and commitment of the teaching staff of the Academy; their professional approach has undoubtedly underpinned this success. The education of our young people involves a partnership and I want to pay tribute to my colleagues in our primary schools who have created the foundation for the success our pupils enjoy today. I know our parents are delighted with the success of their sons and daughters and they too must be congratulated for their consistent support and encouragement as we work together to ensure high levels of success for our pupils.”
At AS Level the pass rate of 98% is very impressive, with 81.4% of all entries achieving A* – C grades. These results provide an excellent foundation on which to build for A Level success in 2020. Once again they reflect the hard work of our students, the diligence of our teaching staff and the ongoing support of parents.
Our pupils continue to excel and we look forward to further success in future years.
