GCSE Success at Hazelwood College

GCSE Success at Hazelwood College

Hazelwood Integrated College students should be extremely proud of their GCSE achievements today with 91% of students obtaining 5 or more GCSE grades A* – C. This figure is well above the Northern Ireland Average of 77.3% for non-selective schools and again places the College in the DENI Upper Quartile. The percentage of students achieving 5 or more GCSEs including English and Maths remains consistently high and also in the DENI Upper Quartile for comparable schools.

Today’s amazing set of results is evidence of the hard work from the students, the ongoing support from the parents/guardians and the continued professionalism and dedication from our Teachers.  This success continues our improvement journey to become one of the top non-selective schools in Northern Ireland.

Among top achieving subjects are English Literature, ICT, Art, Engineering, Health & Social Care, Princes Trust, Moving Image Arts, History, Business, Sports Studies, Travel & Tourism and Personal & Social Development.

Amongst the top achieving students were Sam McClelland, Lilli McCourt, Deaglan Cleary, Natasha Cooke, Emma Getgood, James Houston & Jack Marshall.

Principal, Máire Thompson, congratulated the pupils on their hard work and well-deserved success: “I share in the pride of so many parents and guardians as I congratulate our Year 12 pupils and their fantastic GCSE results. I would also like to commend the efforts of all of the pastoral staff, especially the Year Tutors, who have provided the individual care and attention that has enabled so many of our pupils to meet and, in many cases, exceed their personal targets.  The breadth of opportunities now open to our pupils proves that hard work brings its own rewards and I wish them all the best.” 


With this outstanding set of GCSE results Hazelwood Integrated College look forward to welcoming these pupils to Post 16 in order to build on this excellent foundation for A level studies.
