Glenlola Collegiate Celebrates Outstanding Examination Results

Mr Thompson, Headmaster of Glenlola Collegiate School has praised pupils on yet another year of exceptional results. He commented,

‘Our pupils have once again achieved excellent results at all levels which is testimony to all their hard work and commitment over the past year and of the invaluable support offered by their parents during their time at Glenlola Collegiate. I am sure parents are as proud of these results as we are.

It is most gratifying for my staff to see the tremendous impact that their dedication and care has had on the achievements of the pupils they have taught. These results are also a glowing record of the quality of the education provided by our local primary schools and I thank them for the contribution they have made in laying strong foundations for these successes.

I wish our pupils well as they prepare to move on to the next phase of their education, especially our Leavers most of whom will be taking up places in universities across the UK and beyond.’


The Y14 pupils of Glenlola Collegiate have achieved exceptional examination results, exceeding the Northern Ireland Girls’ average at grades A*-C.

They recorded a 99.4% pass rate in all subjects offered at A-Level, which compares very favourably with the NI girls’ pass rate of 98.7%.
Over one quarter of all grades were A*-A while 9 in 10 of all grades achieved were C or better.

The 90.2% of A*-C grades is well in excess of the NI average of 84.5% and the NI girls’ average of 86.2%.
