Drogheda Grammar tops chart for 3rd level progression again.

The most recent statistics outlining the top feeder schools in the country for third level education has placed Drogheda Grammar school as the top school in the area with 96% of it students progressing to 3rd level education in 2016. These results and statistics were posted in both the Irish Times and Irish Independent on 6th December 2016 and it is the second year in a row the school has been ranked first in the area.

This is the third time in recent years we have topped this list and it is a source of pride and encouragement for all involved with the school. It also reflects the consistent focus and high expectations we have of our students.  We also appear 12th in the table for most improved schools in the country when comparing statistics from 2010 to 2016.

We are delighted again as this highlights the academic focus and efforts of our students and staff and our drive for them all to be the best they can be. We also recognise this is but one element of what makes a school successful and are always keen to improve in every area of school life.  Results and tables like this are pleasing but highlight only one area of what makes our school unique and does not recognise the contribution each staff member and student makes in the other equally important areas of school life such as our extra-curricular programme, the positive learning atmosphere and focus on respect and decency amongst the whole school community.

Well done to all students, staff and families involved.
