Omagh CBS Principal, Foncy McConnell, commended the outstanding achievements saying, “All of our GCSE students are challenged by giving them the opportunity to complete ten GCSEs, which increases their breadth of knowledge and widens career opportunities.
Once again, I must pay tribute to the diligence and dedication of all of our students, the excellent quality of teaching and guidance offered by our staff, and the on-going support of parents for their cooperation with the school. We have already begun the process of interviewing students seeking to progress in their Post-16 studies at Omagh CBS, both our returning pupils, and those wishing to join us from other local schools.”
