Alliance Education spokesperson Chris Lyttle MLA has congratulated pupils on their GCSE results.
Almost 80 per cent of pupils achieved A*-C grades, with one in 10 entries awarded the A* mark.
“I give my congratulations to all students who received their GCSE results,” said Mr Lyttle.
“The high marks in the grades show the great standards in our local schools and are testament to the levels of teaching. I hope after years of hard work and study, young people achieved the grades they hoped for. While results are important, today is only the next step on a longer journey.
“Unfortunately, some pupils will not have received the results they were hoping for. A number of options remain available to these young people and I urge them to contact their school or the Department for the Economy’s Careers Service, who will advise them on the best way forward for their particular circumstances.”
