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; Niall Canavan, Edward Cassidy, Sean Corry, Aidan Kelly, James Kelly, Lorcán McBride, Shea Mullan and Thomas Quinn.
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 a wide curriculum to cater for a range of learning styles to 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 a huge contribution to the life of the school beyond the classroom. Not only have they accomplished superb results but have embraced the opportunities offered within the school to develop the 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 in their future careers.”
