The Enniskillen Royal Grammar School community is delighted with the excellent achievements of our class of 2018. There is no doubt that the first cohort of Sixth Form pupils to complete their Sixth Form Studies in our new school have set the bar high for succeeding cohorts in Enniskillen Royal Grammar School and we are very proud of their achievements. We also want to pay tribute to the hard work and commitment of our staff and to the sterling support of our parents which are key factors in the success story of our talented and ambitious young people who have, true to our school motto, persevered and excelled. Particularly pleasing are the sterling outcomes of those young people who have shown tremendous resilience through personal difficulties.
Overall 95% of the grades were at A*-C and 80% of the grades were at A*-B. 86% of the year group achieved three passes at A*-C which places the school’s achievement ten per cent above the most recent Northern Ireland average. ERGS pupils also outperformed their Northern Ireland counterparts significantly in the top grade bands: 44% of all the grades in ERGS were at A*or A compared with the 2018 Northern Ireland average of 30.4%.
