St Mary’s pupils ‘continue to achieve at the highest level’

The principal of St Mary’s Limavady has said she’s delighted with its “increasing trend of success at A level”.

“Despite gloomy predictions about decreasing grades across Northern Ireland, with an ever-increasing number of sixth form students, St. Mary’s pupils continue to excel,” said Mrs Mary McCloskey.

“In these increasingly difficult economics times, it is vital all our children have the chance to gain qualifications at every level and we are delighted that St Mary’s is now firmly established as an 11-19 school in the Roe Valley.”

Mrs McCloskey said that among the high achievers were Shauna Feeney, who will go forward to Queen’s University to study History with International Studies.

“All students have gained places at third-level institutions in a wide range of courses,” she said.

“The links with the other post-primary schools within Roe Valley Learning Community is vital in providing a wide choice of subjects which is now mandatory under the Entitlement Framework.

“St Mary’s are delighted that pupils from other schools can achieve A Level grades in St Mary’s.

“We remain committed to ensuring that young people have access to the full range of educational choice within the Roe Valley Learning Community.”
