Councillor Brendan Curran has congratulated Saint Patrick’s College, Banbridge on yet again achieving academic excellence at GCSE level.

The Sinn Féin Councillor said, “To not only maintain but also build upon last year’s successes is a major achievement and this year’s GCSE results place St Patrick’s significantly above the average for non-selective schools. This is no mean accomplishment and both pupils and staff deserve recognition for their academic attainment.

“Becoming one of the North’s top five non-selective schools does not happen by accident. Saint Patrick’s developed and implemented a planned programme with the specific aim of raising standards at every level and the excellence of their results is testimony to the success of that forward thinking.”
