Of those pupils sitting 3 A-Levels 60% achieved 3 grades in the A*-C range.

80% of students achieved three successful grades.

A spokesperson for Dunclug College said:

“We extend congratulations also to those who had achievements commensurate with their gifts, including 82% of students who studied two A Level grades and achieved Pass, Merit or Distinction grades in preparation for their chosen careers.

“In particular, it has been impressive to observe many students overcoming challenges and, through their determination, achieving standards beyond their hopes as well as developing significant leadership and interpersonal skills in the process.

“In what has been a unique and difficult time students have coped well with the school year adaptations, blended learning, including examination syllabi which have proved challenging. Six subject areas achieved 100% A – C grades: Professional Business Services, English Literature, Moving Image Arts, CTEC Business, Engineering, Single and Double Award Child Care.

“Other highly successful subjects included A-Level Maths, History, Art, Health and Social Care, Double Award Information Technology, Travel & Tourism and Sports - all in the A* – C range.

“The Principal, Mr Oliver, takes opportunity to thank the students for their commitment and to wish them future success as they enter tertiary education, apprenticeships and/or employment.

“He acknowledges the unfailing support of the Board of Governors, the generosity of parents and pays tribute to the commitment of the teaching and support staff of the college.”
