A Level ResultshomeBanner a level results 2016.jpg


Staff and students at Abbey Community College are thrilled to celebrate A’ Level results at the end of our first year. 94% of students achieved A*-C grades with 76% achieving 3 A*-C. This vastly outperforms last year’s Northern Ireland average of 43% for similar schools. The majority of  students will now make the transition to a range of undergraduate courses at universities such as Stranmillis College, Ulster University and Liverpool John Moore’s. We are particularly proud of Rebekah Orr who achieved A*A*A and Tori Lunn, Aimee Kerr and Natalie Smith all of whom achieved A*A A. Maria Quinn, Abbey Community College Principal said “I am absolutely delighted with the achievement of our Year 14 Students. These results are testament to the hard work and commitment of students and their teachers. We wish all our young people continued success for the future.”
