Knockbreda High School, once one of the worst performing schools in the province, could give other educational establishments a lesson in how to get the best out of its staff and pupils.
The percentage of pupils gaining five good GCSE's has doubled since it began a formal improvement programme, while other pupils have achieved their personal bests.
Outgoing principal Julie Taggart said the formula for success was teamwork with staff, pupils and parents all working together. She modestly did not include her invaluable leadership. The success of Knockbreda is due to teaching at its best and in its widest sense. It certainly deserves a well done.
