The school sets out the notable student performances in the examinations beginning with Nadia Browne’s achievement with passes in ten subject areas, nine Grade 1s and one Grade 2.

Following are: Darion Darroux, Sovanye’ White, Maria Fiueroa, with – 5 Grade 1s, 3 Grade 2s; Darius Lewis – 5 Grade 1s, 2Grade 2s, 1Grade 3, and Ora Buffonge, Korey Lee, with 4 Grade 1, 4 Grade 2s; and Sharese Allen –  7Grade 2s, 1Grade 3;

The following other students also passed eight subjects:

13 students recorded passes in 8 or more subjects representing 19% of the cohort, the largest number in recent times.

Two students, Brian Fenton and Craig Ryan, passed 7 subjects, while 8 students passed 6 subjects while 7 students passed 5 subjects.

Overall, 31 students passed with 5 or more subjects, which is almost 45% of the cohort.

There is a closing of the gender performance gap this year. In 2012 the pass rate for boys was 77% and for girls it was 72%. This year the results show a 74% pass rate for boys and a 75% pass rate for girls.

Additionally a key indicator for education is the percentage of students obtaining 5 CSEC passes including English and Math.  26% of the year five cohort obtained 5+ CSEC passes including Math and English which represent a 3.5% point increase over last year.

Principal Cherlyn Hogan at the end of the report, “extends congratulations to the students who were successful, the teachers for their hard work and dedication and the parents for their support.” She had encouraging words for those who were not as successful as they would have liked. “The school encourages them to pursue further studies.”
