Heywood Community were very pleased with the Leaving Cert results, Principal Philip Bowe said this morning.
“The bottom line is we are very pleased for all our students.
“On behalf of myself, Acting Deputy Principal Peter Malone and on behalf of Ms Geraldine Ryan, Deputy Principal RIP, I want to congratulate all our students.
“Last year 98 per cent had enough points to access their courses, and we hope that there will be a similar percentage this year. Many achieved over 500 points this year, with one getting 605.
“Twenty five per cent did honours Maths and got good results.
“We are seeing a very even spread across a range of subjects, rather than specific areas.
“We are also seeing a great interest in apprenticeships.
“117 pupils sat the leaving cert and we now have over 700 in the school.”
