Rainey pupils make the grades

The new Headmaster of Rainey Endowed School, Mr Mark McCullough, Governors and all staff are delighted with the fantastic performance of our pupils at A Level.

A Level grades are at 50 per cent A*/A which not only is an improvement of three per cent on last year but reverses the national trend.

“This demonstrates the outstanding nature of our school and these results are an excellent way to start the school’s tercentenary celebrations. As Headmaster, I join with the staff and Governors in wishing our pupils continual success as they begin the next chapter of their lives, at work or in higher education. I want to also thank the staff, students and parents for all their hard work and contribution to the Rainey,” said the principal.

Fifty per cent of all ‘A’ Level passes were at grade A*/A and 92 per cent of all passes were at grades A*-C. Eight pupils achieved four grade A*/A passes: Rebecca Brown, Megan Burns, Cecelia Graham, Georgina Heath, Andrew Hopper, Andrew Parke, James Rainey and Aideen Roddy (not in photo).

A further 17 pupils achieved three A*/A grades: Jonathan Brooks, Rebekah Brown, Ryan Brown, Lois Colgan (not in photo), Amy Conway (not in photo), Hannah Cousley, Kate Flanigan, Rowan Griffin, Peter Hueston, Charlene Junkin, Lois Kelso, Chris Moffett, Rachel Parke, Danielle Penney, Joseph Ramsey, Niamh Scullion and Sean Toner (not in photo).

“Our pupils have built upon their prior success at GCSE in 2011 and we commend them for their hard work and success. The demanding nature of our society for achievement and success is met squarely and directly by all those from Rainey Endowed School.

“We are particularly pleased with the depth of quality shown by our pupils. We look forward to these AS results being substantiated into full ‘A’ Levels next year, opening the prospects of our pupils for years to come,” added the principal.
