Welcome to Antrim Grammar School
A Level Results
Sixth Form pupils at Antrim Grammar School were celebrating another set of excellent results following the publication of A Level public examination grades on Thursday 17th August. Following months of hard work, the school’s foyer was alive with excitement as pupils hugged each other and cried tears of joy following success in their examinations. Pupils, parents and teachers not only celebrated the actual grades achieved by pupils but also the confirmation of university places that had been their focus throughout their A Level studies.
Newly appointed Principal, Mrs Jenny Lendrum, said, “I am absolutely delighted that the pupils have achieved such excellent results and are now progressing to their chosen university places. This year also sees three of our pupils leaving us to study at Cambridge University and one to study at Oxford University. Head Boy Jonathan Boyd will read Law at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge; Jordi McCrissican is going to Clare College, Cambridge to read Natural Sciences; Victoria Clingen will join Christ’s College, Cambridge to read History and Politics and Kallum Kennedy will read History at Wadham College, Oxford. I would like to pay tribute to the pupils and staff for all of their commitment, dedication and hard work over the past year as well as parents and guardians for their constant support. This team effort has resulted in a pass rate of 100%; 78.5% of those pupils who sat three or more A levels achieving at least 3 grades A* - C with 18.5% of the Year 14 cohort achieving at least 3 A grades. In addition I am delighted to report a number of particularly exceptional results: Head Girl Emma Carville achieved 3 A*s and 1 A grade, Jordi McCrissican 3 A* grades, Kallum Kennedy 2 A*s and 2 A grades and Jonathan Boyd, Hannah Brown and Cory Monteith were each awarded 2 A*s and 1 A grade. I would like to wish the Year 14 pupils all the best as they leave us and prepare for the next exciting chapter in their lives. They have been wonderful pupils and will continue to be successful individuals as well as wonderful ambassadors wherever their journey takes them.”
Welcome to the website of Antrim Grammar School which should provide you with an insight to school life and allow you to keep up to date with the achievements of our pupils.
Our school is non-denominational and co-educational with a pupil population of around 740. We pride ourselves on our status as International School, and the ‘welcome’ signs in 31 languages displayed in the main foyer reflect the languages spoken by pupils and staff. The school is set in a mature campus which is shared with Parkhall Integrated College and Steeple Nursery School. The school aim “Educating for Life” underpins all of the curricular and extra-curricular activities on offer and staff work hard to provide a tailored education for each pupil and to inspire learning and achievement.
We aspire for excellence in all that we do and provide a caring and challenging environment in which all pupils can achieve their potential. An education at Antrim Grammar will enable your child to identify and cultivate his/her own special interests and talents, develop a sense of intellectual curiosity and achieve excellent academic results. Whilst instilling within our pupils the values to which we hold firm of confidence, community and compassion, we prepare them to be professional young men and women in whatever field of work they choose to pursue in later life. Ours is a vibrant community where your child will be happy and make life-long friends. Whilst we are big enough to offer a wide range of opportunities, we are also a community which is small enough to know and care for each individual. Pupils will become confident, eloquent and considerate young people, who will be well prepared to make their way in the world and develop a love of learning whilst preparing pupils to be members of a global society.
Our website pages can only offer a glimpse of what we can offer to pupils. We would be delighted to provide you with a tour of the school, so that you are able to experience our dynamic and vibrant environment at first-hand.
