Dear Parents,

Leaving Certificate Results 2021

We would like to congratulate our 2021 Leaving Certificate students on their outstanding results received today. We are very proud of their achievements. A detailed analysis of our results will be conducted once we collate the data but the initial indications are that the overall set of results is the best we have ever had in the school. A sincere thank you to our parents, teachers and all who have supported our students during their Senior Cycle programme.

Thank you for your cooperation over the last 18 months with our COVID-19 protocols. As we approach the ending of restrictions it is important we continue to implement the key steps over the coming weeks to prevent members of our school community becoming infected. These include:

  • social distancing
  • use of face masks
  • hand hygiene
  • minimising social contacts

Parents are asked to ensure that students do not attend school if they have any symptoms of Covid-19 infection.
