Best of luck to our 2016 graduates as they prepare to receive their results on Wednesday 17th August. The school will begin to distribute results from 10am. Graduates can also access results via the Internet (www.examinations.ie) using the PIN number provided to them during your exams. Our guidance teachers will be available to help with any queries.
Graduates, please remember that if you are disappointed with a result you can apply to view your script by fully completing personalised form enclosed with your results and returning it to the school before Tuesday 23rd August.
