I am delighted to inform you of the magnificent achievement of the class of 2017 in this year’s Leaving Certificate. Our results, once again, have exceeded expectation. What is most obvious is that more than half of our students received 464 points or more and of these, 25% of the students achieved 509 points and higher. The number of students who achieved H1's outstripped the national averages and as has been the norm in recent years, the uptake of Higher Level subjects at Sutton Park is considerably higher than national averages.
Whilst the new points system presents challenges in the context of comparison with previous years, I think you will agree that these results show the tremendous work, effort and energy from all our students not to mention the care attention and guidance given to them by our hugely dedicated staff. Thanks to the parents for all their support in recent times.
We will have further updates on these results when the students receive their University offers on Monday.
Head of School
