Recognition in The Irish Times school tables
19th December 2016
Castlepollard Community College made outstanding gains in the recent Irish Times Feeder Schools tables. The supplement, released last week outlines, school by school and county by county, how many students secondary schools in Ireland are sending to third level education.
It is no secret that Castlepollard Community College has made monumental gains in a range of areas over the past five years with a rising student population, implementation of top of the range IT facilities and an extension to the school building, the college has enjoyed a fruitful period. The college’s standing in the recent Irish Times Feeder Schools tables only goes to illustrate the significant achievements being made in the college.
Castlepollard Community College was able to take two important points from the recent, nationwide report:
- The college ranked very highly in list of feeder schools with 74% its students gaining access to 3rd level
- Separately, the school ranks number 17 in whole country in the ‘most improved schools’
Principal Mary Coyle was understandably delighted with the recent tables saying, “It’s great to see that we are meeting the expectations of parents when they send their pupils to Castlepollard Community College.” This academic achievement marries perfectly with the impressive strides the college has taken in recent years in terms of extra-curricular advancements, particularly in Music and Drama, along with the highly successful introduction of Transition Year.
