Omagh CBS Principal, Foncy McConnell, commended the outstanding achievements saying, “All of our GCSE students are challenged by giving them the opportunity to complete up to 10 GCSEs with some taking the opportunity to study up to 12 GCSEs. Once again, I must pay tribute to the diligence and dedication of our all of students, the excellent quality of teaching offered by our teachers and the on-going support of the parents of our students. We have already begun the process of interviewing all of those students seeking to continue their studies at Post 16 level in Omagh CBS, both from our current pupils and those wishing to join us from other local schools.”
