Post-16 students at Omagh CBS have once again produced outstanding results with 83% of students achieving 3 or more A* to C grades. Their excellent achievements reflect their diligent effort combined with the work of dedicated teachers and supportive parents which has produced top grades in Omagh CBS.
Overall, fifty-eight students achieved two A Grades or better in their A-Level examinations and of those, twenty-one achieved three A Grades or better. Among those results were the outstanding achievements of the following students; Aidan Kelly, Lorcan McBride Shea Mullan, and Thomas Quinn achieved 4A* grades, Edward Cassidy and Sean Corry achieved 3A* and 1A grade, Niall Canavan achieved 2A* and 2A grades and Eamann Donnelly achieved 4A grades.
Some of our high achievers were students who chose to join Omagh CBS after completing their GCSE’s in other local schools, in order to avail of our wide Post 16 curriculum options. Along with their fellow successful students, they have opted for a great variety of higher education courses including Medicine, Pharmacy, Computing and ICT, Law, Sports Studies, Accountancy, Surveying, Engineering and Teaching.
Success at A Level is imitated in the Year 13 AS Results. Among the high achievers were the following students who achieved four A grades; Eoin Connolly, Eoin Corry, David Corry, Oisin Corry, Rory Donnelly, Finn Grimes, Daniel McGuigan and Conall Rice.
In expressing his delight at the superb results, the Principal Foncy McConnell, stated, “The Christian Brothers Grammar School continues to provide high quality education to the young men of West Tyrone, offering an extensive curriculum to cater for a range of learning styles that provide them with a route to the best universities and colleges of higher education. Many of the high attaining students achieved their exceptional results while making an enormous contribution to the life of the school beyond the classroom. Not only have they accomplished outstanding results but have embraced the opportunities offered within the school to develop their wider skills and attributes that will be invaluable to them in later life.
Our students who have achieved these excellent results at A Level, BTEC and AS level are a credit to their parents and teachers and they should be very satisfied with their achievements. Our Post 16 students have produced these brilliant results because of their maturity and diligence, the excellence of the teaching they have received and the exceptional support of their parents. I wish them well as they move on to the colleges and universities of their choice and into their future careers.”
