Following excellent AS and A-Level results. Mrs O’Hare, Principal, announced that Wallace students this year had achieved the best ever results at GCSE. Mrs O’Hare commented:
“Over 60 students this year achieved 8 or more straight A grades with 20 of those students awarded 7 or more A*. Students across the year group of 170 all worked with great determination and dedication and have been richly rewarded. 99% of all grades achieved were at A* to C this year and almost 90% were A*, A and B.
The students have been ably supported by a well qualified and expert teaching and support staff. Technical, Premises, Administrative, Accounting and Teaching Staff are all to be congratulated on creating the conditions in which such excellent results can be achieved.
Mrs O’Hare added : “Congratulations to all our GCSE students. Chloe Carson, Molly Carson, Christopher Lennon each achieved 10 A* grades and a further 7 students achieved 9 A* and 1 A : Ashley Blaine, Rebecca Lafferty, Zara McConnell, Kim McCord, Rachel McGrath, Sophie Murtagh and Daniel Nelson. The school is celebrating its highest ever levels of achievement at each grade at GCSE. Almost one quarter of the grades awarded to students at Wallace this year were A*, the pass rate A*-C was 99% and 98% of the 170 students achieved A*-C in 8 or more subjects.”
On behalf of the staff of Wallace I extend my thanks to supportive parents and the contributory Primary Schools who have played a pivotal role in this success.”
