Results issued yesterday were “once again testament to the outstanding standards of post-primary education in the Roe Valley”, Limavady Grammar School has said.
The overall pass rate was 98.8% for the 324 exams entered. 16 students gained 3 or more straight A grades, with 4 pupils receiving 4 A*/A grades.
Limavady Grammar School Head Boy, Matthew Alexander, achieved an A* in four subjects – Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics. Colin Chan and Steven Montgomery achieved 3 A* grades; Ciaran Butcher, Andrew Harvey and Thomas Caskey two each. 85% of all grades awarded were at A*- C level.
Speaking about the results, Mr Robert Wilson, Limavady Grammar School Principal, commented: “These results reflect the hard work of our students, the industry and commitment of their teachers and the support provided by the parents of our young people. The ethos of our school is based on our mission statement ‘Learning, Caring, Preparing for Life.’ The Sixth Formers who are leaving us have been part of a child-centred, academic focused grammar school and their outstanding A Level grades are only part of the rounded young men and women who will face the future with confidence. The input and support from Staff in Limavady High School, St Mary’s College and NWRC for our pupils taking link courses as part of the RVLC is much appreciated. The Senior Leadership Team and the whole staff are delighted with the pupils’ successes and were proud to be part of their celebrations today.”
