THE partnership of pupils, parents and staff all working together has helped pupils of Rathfriland High School reach their potential.
That was the message from principal Amanda McCullough remarking on the school’s recent GCSE success.

“This has been another excellent year in Rathfriland High School with our pupils achieving a tremendous set of results which reflect the very good education provided here,” she said.
“Once again, an impressive number of pupils in the cohort achieved five or more GCSE passes at A*-C.
“The results reward the hard work of the pupils, the dedication of the staff and very positive parental support. It is also important to recognise the contribution of our partners in the Banbridge Area Learning Community. This partnership allows us to offer a diverse range of subjects which affords pupils a wider choice at KS4.
“This year’s set of results reinforces our reputation as a high performing, non-selective secondary school.
“Rathfriland High School has provided opportunities and opened doors across a diverse range of further education and training which will allow these leavers to choose whichever pathway most suits their skills and talents.
“I would like to congratulate our pupils on their success, perseverance and industry. I would also pay tribute to the talented and professional teaching staff who play a pivotal role in these achievements. Parents also provide crucial support for our young people and I wish to thank them.
“The performance of some pupils is particularly worthy of note, Alexandria Harbinson, Geri Georgieva, Laura Adams, Emily Cantley, Mallory Lutton, Jessica Thomas and Kerry Martin.
