  • Welcome to Friends' School Lisburn online.
    Friends’ is one of nine Quaker schools in Britain and Ireland and shares a common heritage with each of them. Although the School has grown and changed since its foundation in 1774, the Quaker belief in care for the individual and in the importance of the development of each person's potential remains central to our ethos and helps us to cater successfully for the different traditions in the Lisburn area. We hope you enjoy exploring our website and finding out more about what goes on in School. Stephen Moore, Principal

A Level Results 2018

Congratulations to all of our pupils who received A2 and AS results today. Everyone in School is delighted with what has been achieved, and pupils and their parents can be proud of the high standards attained.

A very pleasing 89% of pupils gained 3 or more grades at A*-C at A-level, with 45% of entries at A*-A, and 78% at A*-B. There are so many individual success stories that it would not be possible to mention them all, but of particular note are Georgia Edmonds, who finished with a total of 5 A*s, Matthew Mackinnon and Jonathan Edwards, who both achieved 4 A*s, and David Cleland and Peter Fox who obtained 3 A*s and one A.

At AS level, the overall performance was also pleasing, with a total of 41 pupils achieving at least 3 A grades, of whom 14 gained a magnificent total of 4 As.

Best wishes to our leavers well as they move on to the next stage of their lives, and we look forward to further success next year for everyone who took AS examinations. And last but not least, thank you to all of the staff who worked so hard to help pupils achieve this success.
