IT’s that time of year again.  Every school in the North has been recorded for its exam results and put into a table for your benefit.

Just like 2013, I picked out the schools attended by the majority of post primary pupils from West Belfast.

There was one major jump in performance and that was by Coláiste Feirste, who were on the scrap heap in 2013. Their June GCSE and A-Level results have put them well within the top schools in Northern Ireland.

Another rise was by St Louise’s and St Rose’s who jumped up 50 spaces in A-Levels results.

Christian Brother’s School was saved from closure after a high profile campaign was fought by pupils and staff. They didn’t perform so well in GSCE’s but their A-Level results have pushed them into comfortable position on the grid.

Staying put were the Grammar’s who continue to lead the tables with only minor differences.

Continuing to decline are St Colm’s, Malone Integrated and Corpus Christi College. The results below show the local league and the figure in brackets shows the overall place in the North.
