GCSE Results 2021

12th Aug 2021

Paying tribute to our schools’ success, our principal David Hampton explained “At Strabane Academy we are absolutely delighted in terms of our GCSE results. Our exceptional A levels results have been backed up with more impressive GCSE results in terms of adding value to the pupils’ abilities, with the great majority of our pupils obtaining 5 or more GCSE’s at A* – C including English and Maths.

  • Within our Grammar stream; 100% of all pupils achieved 5 or more A*-C grades at GCSE including English and Maths.
  • When we look at the results for the whole year group, which includes a wide range of ability, 97% of the year achieved 5 or more GCSE grades at A*-C and 84% 5 or more grades at A*-C including English and Maths.

Top performers in each of our Pathways included:

In the Dennett Pathway, which contains the traditional Grammar subjects, the top performing girl was Emma Craig with 9A* grades and an A grade and the top performing boy was Patrick Walker with 7A* grades and 3A grades. Other top achievers included; Joanna McCombe 6A* grades and 4A grades, Emma Wallace 5A* grades and 5A grades, Katie Gamble and Lauren Mealiff 3A* grades and 7A grades, Lucy Aiken and Aaron Russell 3A* grades, 6A grades and B grade.

In the Finn Pathway, which contains a mix of academic and vocational subjects, our top performing students included, Shannon McIntyre, Ella McCarron, Ruby Kelly, Miya Kee and Jacob Black and in our Mourne Pathway which is mainly vocational, our top performers were Natalie Devine, Katelyn Duffy, Grace Kelly-McGlynn and Ben Rogers.

These results reflect the hard work of our pupils and highlight the dedication and support provided by our staff over the past two years. Within our intake we have a wide range of individual needs and ability levels and we are extremely proud of each of our young people who reflect our values and our vision to ASPIRE.”
