Stephen Moon, Tollbar Academy Principal, said: "Overall I am very pleased with the results. Tollbar Academy was expecting a dip in results this year because the prior attainment of students in this year group was a little lower than in previous years. However, the results in a number of subjects are still very high, and I am delighted that students have worked very hard and taken advantage of revision classes and the extra tuition provided by Tollbar teaching staff to achieve their aims."
