The school has an increase of 13% on last year of students achieving 3+ A Levels A*- C.

Mrs Fiona Kane, Principal, said: “Back in June, we were recognised as a Centre of Excellence for our inclusive practice and ethos as the first school in County Armagh to achieve the prestigious Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM)

“I am absolutely delighted in this context that our ethos of inclusivity and welcoming young people of all abilities, all nationalities, needs and faiths to our school is helping them all thrive to achieve their full potential in our diverse community that nurtures every individual.

“We have had a substantial increase of 13% on last year of students achieving 3+ A Levels at A* - C. I am thrilled that so many of our A Level students have been successful in securing their first choice University place.

“We believe and demonstrate on a daily basis that academic ability and future success are not formed and fixed at 11 years of age and we have demonstrated that year on year in Lismore.

“The trend in Lismore continues that not one single A Level student left our school empty handed. It’s just fabulous to see so many smiling faces of subject teachers, pastoral staff, students and proud parents – their hard work, study and effort all coming to fruition.”
