Dean Maguirc College applauds its G.C.S.E. pupils on their
Pupils at Dean Maguirc College have been applauded on the results they have achieved at G.C.S.E. level during a year that saw the disruption of teaching and learning due to Covid 19 as well as Year 12 pupils not having the opportunity to sit their examinations at the end of Key Stage 4.
Whilst this year’s set of results were based on teacher grades, the principal, Mr. James Warnock said “it was the correct approach under the circumstances to use for the awarding of grades as the teachers are the experts and have the best knowledge of the pupils with regard to assessment and their ultimate attainment.”
He added “that much work had gone into finalising the predicted grades with the collation of the necessary evidence to support the outcomes, an assignment carried out by the teachers with integrity and professionalism.”
Mr. Warnock congratulated this cohort of pupils who had achieved the grades they deserved and wished them every success as they now progressed to their Post 16 studies at the ‘Dean’ or were transferring either to South West College, Omagh or Dungannon to embark on the next stage of their education.
The top achievers for 2020 at G.C.S.E. level were Conor McGarrity, Síofra Loughran, Jerome Cullen, Colleen Kelly, Anna Sweeney, Blaithnait Kerr, Aislinn Coyle, Eoin Conway, Caitlin Gormley, Niamh McElhone, David Morris, Clodagh McMenemy, Mary Gormley, Aimee Conlon, Pauriac McDonnell, Lorcan McGarrity, Alanna McGaughey, Shea Donaghy and Katie McMahon.
