St Mary’s Principal, Mrs Siobhan Kelly celebrated with staff and students,
‘St Mary’s has built upon the success of last year with 90% of our students achieving 7 or more passes at A*-C including English and Maths, a 5% increase on last year’s results.
Our Year 12 students have achieved a superb set of GCSE results and proved that hard work and determination are the foundations for success. It would be all too easy to look back to the recent past and what they missed out on during the pandemic, but instead this group of students looked forward, worked in partnership with school staff and focused on achieving their very best, and for that we applaud them. I would like to extend my gratitude and congratulations to the parents and guardians who no doubt will be feeling very proud of our young people today.
Finally, I must pay credit to the hardworking and dedicated staff of St Mary’s who work tirelessly on behalf of our students across the school. As a school community we are so proud of our GCSE students, and it has been uplifting to witness their joy and celebrations today. We look forward to welcoming many of the students back to St Mary’s to commence A Level studies and would also like to wish our school leavers every success.’
