Banbridge Academy Prize Day 2023

OPasswur students excelled in their public examinations, performing significantly better than the NI Grammar School AverageAn outstanding 90% of pupils achieving 3 grades A*- C and almost 60% of all entries were A*/A grades.  Out of the 169 pupils who entered these examinations 69 obtained a minimum of 3 A*/A grades or better, with 21 pupils achieving at least 3 A* grades and 41 pupils obtaining at least 2 A* grades.  Two students progressed to Oxbridge, Lara Crothers – Natural Sciences, Murray Edwards College, Cambridge and Pushti Patel – Medicine, Worcester College, Oxford.


AS Level results were equally impressive, with 96.9% of all students achieving at least 3 AS Levels.  These results provide an excellent foundation on which to build for A Level success in 2024.


At GCSE the students achieved the best outcomes in the School’s history.  All of the Year 12 students achieved at least 5 A*-C grades, including English and Mathematics, and 99% of the students achieved at least 7 A*-C grades, including English and Mathematics – truly outstanding results.  Almost 70% of all GCSE entries resulted in top grades A*/A and when B grades are included, this figure rises to a phenomenal 91% of all entries.


These are exceptional results and the pupils, parents and teachers of the Academy are to be commended for all of their efforts.  We commend the Class of 2023 for their resilience and maturity, we thank them for the wonderful memories they have created in the Academy and wish them every success in the next stage of their educational journey.
