Newtownhamilton High School Principal Neil Megaw has paid tribute to the class of 2018 for an excellent set of GCSE results.

The south Armagh based school has developed a reputation for high academic performance over recent years and this year is no different as Mr Megaw explained.

“Once again, our pupils, parents and staff have worked in partnership to produce another fantastic set of GCSE statistics and therefore I offer my congratulations to everyone involved,” he said.

Nicole Frazer performed exceptionally well with 5 A* and 5 A grades while other pupils of particular note who all achieved A*, A or equivalent grades in at least one subject area were Jessica Acheson, Emma-Louise Bailie, Jenna Barbour, Rachel Belshaw, Sam Blackwood, Ben Cartmill, Kris Cartmill, William Coleman, Emma Cooke, Jenna Corkey, Adam Gibson, Mark Giffin, Ewan Glenny, Alyson Henry, Kyle Henry, Rodney Hughes, Matthew Jenkins, Judith Leeman, William McBride, Amy McIlveen, Jamie McKee, Rebekah McLean, Iroslav Peshev, Jessica Smyth, Kelly-Ann Smyth, Joshua
Straghan, Jorja West and Xuan Beattie.

In providing an explanation for this latest set of impressive results, Mr Megaw explained: “For me personally, the most important thing is that our pupils enjoy their school experience.

“A recent pupil survey identified that the overwhelming majority of our pupils were happy in school. As principal, this was extremely satisfying as I believe that a happy child will learn, and will ultimately achieve positive results.”
