In addition to those achieving the highest grades, the college congratulates all who have achieved results that are great for them – in other words, their personal best. As an integrated college, Drumragh celebrates and encourages the best in every one of its students, and wishes them well for the future.

High examination results are a key goal at Drumragh, as they are of course for any strong school. The college is also proud, however, of the personal qualities of the students who enrich the school by studying there. Drumragh emphasises the importance of positive, generous attitudes, of developing the skills that employers want and of being a real, influential contributor to society. These are all outcomes of attending an integrated school.

Staff deserve recognition for their part in the many successes Drumragh is celebrating. They have worked so hard alongside their students, supporting them and sharing their amazing expertise with them. One of the many qualities of the college is the strength of the relationships that exist between students and staff. The college also appreciates the hard work, commitment and support of parents; the partnership between home and school is vital.

Drumragh’s aims are to work toward a better Northern Ireland in the future, by welcoming all and embracing difference, whilst providing a quality of education that is second to none. The brilliant achievements of these young people are clear evidence that these ideals are in fact a reality.
