Last Thursday’s release of A Level results by the various examining boards brought news of great success to St Patrick’s Grammar School, Armagh.
Speaking after the publication of A Level results the school’s new principal, Mr Dominic Clarke, expressed delight that the overall pass rate was, once again, impressive. “On behalf of the Board of Governors and staff of St Patrick’s, I congratulate all the students who have achieved so much at A2 and AS Level in public examinations this year. We celebrate their achievements and their efforts and are proud of their various successes.”
“As in any school, great results can only be achieved by students’ dedicated application to study. I commend and thank them all, and their parents and families for their support, commitment and cooperation. I must also express my gratitude and appreciation to all school staff who have done so much to help our students perform so successfully again this year”.
Delighted Year 14 students from St Patrick’s Grammar School who achieved outstanding grades at A level! Pictured are some of the group of 26 students who each gained 2, 3 or 4 A/A* grades. The successful students are pictured with Mr Dominic Clarke, School Principal, Mr Damien McAlary, Head of Senior School and Mr Aidan Convie, Head of Year 14.
A past pupil of St. Patrick’s, Mr Clarke takes on his new role as principal this August and is looking forward to the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Results day provided a great opportunity for the new school principal to meet with some students, parents and staff of the school.
Indeed, Mr Clarke was delighted to learn from Mr Lynch in the Careers Department that many of this year’s A Level students should gain entry to higher and further education in universities and colleges in Ireland and throughout the UK. He noted that the most important thing to recognise is that so many students have realised their full potential and achieved so much in their individual A Level subjects and he hoped the work ethic that the school has fostered in these students will stand them in good stead in the future.
