Praise as hard work pays off
FALLIBROOME Academy is celebrating after more than three quarters of its students achieved the national benchmark.
An impressive 76 per cent of students walked away with five A*-Cs including English and maths, with 37pc of entries being graded at A* or A.
In addition, almost 40pc of students achieved the English Baccalaureate qualification – a record at the school.
Top of the class were Zarin Salehin, Megan Smith and Amy Bowers who all achieved the remarkable feat of 11A* grades.
Principal Peter Rubery praised his students and their teachers for their hard work and service to the school.
He said: “Every student deserves praise for their hard work and commitment. This remarkable cohort made a tremendous contribution to school life and was a pleasure to teach.
“In addition to producing stunning academic results they have brought credit to the Academy by their sporting, artistic and community achievements.
“For instance many of the girls who won the English Schools’ Netball Championships have produced hatfuls of A*s and As.
“Also, Charlie Jones and Angus Currie, who were selected for the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, were among our highest achievers with 10 or more A*/A grades.
“These results, alongside our impressive A-level returns will confirm the school’s reputation as one of the most successful comprehensives in the country.”
