22/08/19 – Outstanding GCSE Results for Newtownhamilton High
The annual publication of GCSE results at Newtownhamilton High has proved to be an enjoyable occasion over recent years with the school developing a province wide reputation for high academic performance. Once again, the South Armagh school has excelled by achieving an outstanding set of GCSE statistics that has actually eclipsed the performance of recent cohorts.
Principal Neil Megaw explained “Over the last few years our GCSE results have been consistently high and therefore I was confident that we would again achieve another impressive set of results and I was certainly not disappointed. I want to congratulate our pupils, parents, teachers, non-teaching staff and collaborative partners for their contribution to these amazing results. I wish the Class of 2019 every success and believe that their experiences in our small country school will prove beneficial to them whatever their chosen career path”.
Amy Flanagan performed exceptionally well with the following grades: 2 A*, 6 A, 1 B and 1 C*. Other pupils of particular note who all achieved A*, A or equivalent grades in at least one subject area were Hannah Bell, Sarah Bell, Sarah Belshaw, Katie Ferris, Leah Harrison, Sarah Herron, Chloe Honeyman, Faith Hughes, Gareth Knight, Lucy McIlroy, Aaron McKee, Jenna Mitchell, Abigail Smyth, Claire Stephenson, Emma Watt and Chloe White.
