Wallace High School is Lisburn’s top performing A level school for the second year running and features in the top ten selective schools in Northern Ireland. The league tables, published in the Irish News, benchmark schools according to the % of their A level students gaining three or more A levels at A* to C. Wallace students achieved the highly impressive figure of 87.1%; this represented an improvement on their previous record results attained in 2016.
Wallace Principal Mrs Deborah O’Hare said:
“I am delighted that we have consolidated our position as the top performing school in Lisburn and am immensely proud of the reputation we hold province wide. These results reflect the positive work ethic of Wallace’s pupils and staff and what I like to think of as the “Wallace Way” which is whole-hearted commitment to tasks in hand.
Whilst any school community is inevitably and justifiably proud of special achievements such as Oxbridge entrance the moral duty for teachers is to help all young people reach their potential. I am, therefore, especially pleased for those young people within our school family who perhaps had to strive that little bit longer and harder to achieve their goals. They have positive futures ahead and my staff are proud to have played their part in creating those futures.”
