* Last year the annual GCSE League Tables were produced by the Irish News with a local school finishing tops.

Aughnacloy College was ranked sixth out of 133 non-selective schools for pupils gaining five GCSE grades at A*-C including GCSE English and GCSE Maths. Within the controlled sector Aughnacloy College is ranked second.

This was a fabulous achievement for the school and within the Southern Region it was the Top Non Grammar school.

Meanwhile, Aughnacloy College is continuing to improve their facilities and is looking forward to the completion of their 3G pitch!
