The corridors of Crumlin Integrated College rang with excitement as the news of this year’s GCSE results were publicised. This has been an outstanding year for the college culminating in pupils achieving an excellent set of results which are the best in over seven years.
86% of pupils achieved 5 or more A*-C grades with extremely impressive results attained in most departments, particularly, Single Award Science, Art and Design, Geography, Home Economics (Child Development) and Occupational Studies (Construction) who all achieved 100% A*-C grades. There was much delight from the parents and pupils on Thursday morning as envelopes were opened and results revealed.
Ms McCann one of the Year 12 parents reflected:
‘Brian’s confidence has grown since coming to Crumlin Integrated College and despite the uncertainties surrounding the school in past years, the teachers never failed to do their best for the pupils. The extra revision classes were extremely beneficial and learning was always encouraged. ‘
