Students, staff and parents at Drumragh Integrated College are delighted to be celebrating a very strong set of GCSE results this year. The college community is extremely proud of its students and extends its congratulations to every one of them. These students are building their future plans and successes, and the future looks bright for them. Many are now looking forward to beginning their A-level studies at Drumragh within the next two weeks – and so a new chapter begins.
Drumragh Integrated College continues to move forward, and its 2018 GCSE results provide ample evidence of this. These excellent results reflect much more than just intelligence – they show clearly the commitment and the strength of character that each of these young people has.

In addition to those achieving the highest grades, we congratulate all those who have achieved results that are great for them – in other words, their personal best. As an integrated college we celebrate and encourage the best in every one of our students, and wish them well for the future.
High examination results are a key goal for us, as they are of course for any strong school. We are also proud, however, of the personal qualities of the students who enrich Drumragh by studying here. We emphasis the importance of positive, generous attitudes, of developing the skills that employers want and of being a real, influential contributor to society. These are all outcomes of attending an integrated school.
Staff deserve recognition for their part in the many successes Drumragh is celebrating. They have worked so hard alongside their students, supporting them and sharing their amazing expertise with them. One of the many qualities of this college is the strength of the relationships that exist between students and staff. We also appreciate the hard work, commitment and support of parents; the partnership between home and school is vital.
Our aims are to work toward a better Northern Ireland in the future, by welcoming all and embracing difference, whilst providing a quality of education that is second to none. The brilliant achievements of these young people are clear evidence that these ideals are in fact a reality.
