Lurgan College students were celebrating this week with the release of the A Level results on Thursday (August 13).

Mr Robinson, Headmaster, was absolutely thrilled, once again, with the outstanding 2015 A2 Level results which include some of the best ever recorded collective and individual performances by College pupils in the school’s proud 142 year history.

Lurgan College principal, Mr Trevor Robinson pictured with the two top performing 'A' level students following the announcement of results last Thursday. Matthew Canning achieved three A* grades and one A grade and head girl, Megan Collins achieved one A* and three A grades. INLM32-202.

He said: “These fantastic results are surely, once again, firm testament to the success of the tried and tested Dickson Plan which, for over forty years, has equipped the young people of this area with the necessary skills to help them fulfil their true academic, social, moral and spiritual potential.”

For an incredible fourteenth year in a row, the Y14 pupils of Lurgan College recorded an over 99.7% pass rate in all subjects offered at A Level, which compares very favourably with the NI Grammar School average pass rate of 98.2%. Grades A*, A and B accounted for almost two thirds of all grades achieved, which again is well above the NI Grammar School average. The 85.1% of A*-C grades is also in excess of the NI Grammar School average.

Worthy of particular mention are former King’s Park PS pupils, Matthew Canning and Megan Collins, who achieved an outstanding four straight A grades in their A Levels – a fantastic feat by any standard!

A total of 12 pupils recorded at least three straight grade As in their subjects and a further 10 pupils obtained at least two grade As.

Students with three A grades were Samantha Bann (King’s Park PS), Callum Craig (Carrick PS), Charlotte Cromie (Waringstown PS), Hannah Eakin (Waringstown PS), Lauren Edge (Carrick PS), Sam Harrison (King’s Park PS), Alex Hurst (Waringstown PS), Gareth Hutchinson (Waringstown PS), Bethan Logan (Ballinderry PS), Sophie Lyons (Waringstown PS), Jordan McCallen (King’s Park PS) and Rebecca McShane (King’s Park PS).
