Sixth Form pupils at the Royal School Dungannon achieved excellent A Level results in this summer’s examinations.
The school had 71% of grades awarded at the top grades of A*, A or B and an average UCAS points return per pupil of 337 (approximately 2 As and 1 B).
The overall pass rate was 97.3% across all subjects. 14 pupils out of a cohort of 69 secured at least 3 A*/A grades with Eileen Mak and Alan Chan each scoring 5 A*/A grades while Eric Cheung, Kaitlyn Tate and Oscar Wong each returned 4 A*/A grades. Cherith Bartley scored 2 A* grades plus 1 A grade and six other pupils – Kyle Anderson, Danielle Keys, Calvin McFarland, Alexander McMaster, Patrick Swaile and Adam Willis - carried off at least 1 A* grade plus 2 A grades each. Georgina Mulligan and Lauren Stewart completed the line up with 3 A grades each.
At AS Level many RSD pupils established a strong foundation for their continued studies, with around 6/10 grades at A or B grade. 15 pupils returned at least three A grades in their chosen subjects, including Joshua McKee, who achieved 5 A grades, and Robyn Elliot-Murphy, Courtney Hadden, Emma McCammon, May McCool, Alex McDonald, Ellen McLean, Claude Mok, Jacob Stewart and Benny Tang who each secured 4 A grades.
The Headmaster, Dr. David Burnett, described the results as, “A reflection of the hard work pupils have put in to their studies throughout their time at the School. The pupils deserve a great deal of praise for the commitment and determination they have shown.”
Dr. Burnett explained that the pupils’ high academic achievements were a reflection of the School’s broader ethos and praised teachers and parents for supporting and guiding the students.
