100% Pass Rate for A Level students

19 August 2016

CHS is delighted to recognise the achievements of yet another very successful group of students at AS and A Level.

The number of pupils attaining the top grades, A* to C, at A Level has increased again this year.  Overall the A Level pass rate was 100%.

What is particularly to be welcomed is that at the High School 42% of all grades awarded were A* or A while across Northern Ireland 29.5% of all grades were in that category, putting us an incredible 12.5 percentage points ahead of the Northern Ireland average for top grades.  We are delighted that the vast majority of pupils have secured their first choice of university place.

This success is firstly a credit to the young people themselves who have studied hard and performed well.  It is also a tribute to the commitment and professionalism of our well qualified teaching staff and it is evidence of all the encouragement, support and co-operation of parents and families. 

Commenting on the results the Headmaster of Cookstown High School, Graham Montgomery said,  “It is great to see that for the fourth successive year we have had an increase in the percentage of our pupils achieving the very good grades A* - C.  These results demonstrate clearly that Cookstown High School is the key destination for those who aspire to achieve outstanding results at A Level.

“While it is particularly pleasing that the percentage of top grades awarded to our pupils well outstrips both the UK and Northern Ireland averages it is vital to remember that behind each batch of statistics is a young person and a family whose dreams have moved a step closer with their success. 

“We are pleased to have helped more pupils to access more high level university courses.  We congratulate everyone involved in securing these results and wish the young people well as they leave the High School to embark upon the next exciting stage of their education.”
