St Mary’s students enjoyed individual and collective success today as the A2 and AS Level results were released.
St Mary’s Christian Brothers’ Grammar School has had another highly successful A Level year, with 93% of students achieving three grades at A*-C or equivalent.
In a very difficult and fractured year, involving lockdowns, quarantine and remote learning, the students overcame adversity and today enjoyed their deserved success.
Bradley Bell, Head Boy, was the top performing student with 4 A* grades. Outstanding results were also secured by Rory Hunter (3 A*s), Martin Doherty (2 A*s and an A), Harry Fallon (2 A*s and an A), Conleth Mallon (A* and 2 As), Matthew Maynes (A* and 2 As), Deaglan McCready (A* and 2 As) and Caolan O Duibhfinn (A* and 2 As).
D*DD awards in BTEC Level 3 Sport were achieved by Conall McCabe, Conor Sullivan and Oisín Barr who also achieved an A in Applied Business Studies, while Adam Lyons, Aaron Nann and Shay Ratcliffe obtained triple distinctions.
The school’s overall A Level performance across subject areas was very strong, with St Mary’s students achieving a 100% pass rate at grades A* to C in Applied Business, Art, BTEC Sport, Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Digital Technology, Drama, English, Finance, Geography, History, Irish, Media, Moving Image Arts, Spanish and Technology.
St Mary’s Principal, Mrs Siobhan Kelly, expressed her pride in the success of the pupils and their teachers.
“These are extremely pleasing results and the school is delighted that our pupils’ hard work and commitment and the support of their parents has been rewarded. The entire school community recognises how difficult it has been for pupils and their families during these prolonged unusual and challenging times, and our pupils must be commended for their determination and resilience. I am sure that our A Level pupils, who have contributed greatly to the life of the school community, will now go on to great success in their universities and employment”.
