YEAR 11 and Year 12 students at Cullybackey College arrived to pick up their long awaited GCSE results last Thursday.
For the Year 12 students, these results represent the culmination of 5 years of hard work and dedication often involving modular examinations and Controlled Assessment pieces. Over 63% of students were able to secure at least a grade C in their subject entries.
Mr David Donaldson, the College Principal was keen to highlight the many individual successes within Year 12.
He said: “At Cullybackey College our primary aim is to create opportunities for our students to succeed and that has been clearly evident today.
“ I am delighted to congratulate them for achieving results that reflect their hard work in conjunction with the professional support of our dedicated staff. In particular, I would like to say well done to Annie Millar, Lucia Bernatova and Chloe McGregor for achieving a superb set of results.”
Annie achieved 4 A*s and 6 As whilst Lucia managed to get 2A*s, 6 As and 1B. Chloe McGregor was awarded 4As, 4Bs and 2Cs.
Some other great performances of note included:
Jade Higgins (1A, 6Bs and 2Cs)

Mr Tim Manson, Vice Principal commented that, “It is pleasing to note that our 3-year average for GCSE passes at C or above has risen to 69% this year. This shows the consistently high performance that our students are achieving over a wide range of subjects.”
A large percentage of pupils will be returning to embark upon A-Level studies and the College would also like to formally wish those leaving all the very best in the future career paths they choose to follow.
