Further records broken at Grammar results day

Staff and pupils at Larne Grammar School have been celebrating another outstanding set of results in the most recent ‘A’ and ‘AS’ examinations.

Following on from a record breaking cohort, who achieved the best results in the history of the school last year, was never going to be an easy task.  The current ‘A’ Level group, however, can claim their own little bit of Larne Grammar School history.

The percentage of Year 14 pupils achieving 3 A*-C grades exceeded the record high level of 2016, meaning the 2017 results are the best in the school’s history (83.3%), and the year group has achieved the school’s highest ever percentage of pupils achieving 3 A*-A grades, the highest ever percentage of pupils achieving 3 A*-B grades and the highest ever percentage of entries being awarded and A*-B grade.

This fantastic set of result means that Larne Grammar School will again score well above the NI Grammar School Average, securing their place as one of the top performing schools in the country.

The top achiever in the year group was David Gilliland, formerly of Ballynure Primary School, who was awarded 2 A* grades and 2 A grades in Business Studies, Geography, Information Technology and Religious Studies. His outstanding set of results secures him a place at Durham University where he will study Business Management.

A clearly delighted David said: “I’m delighted with my results. Doing ‘A’ Levels was a very challenging experience but also a rewarding one in the end. I look forward to my next adventure at University.”

David’s achievements were closely followed by Katy Aston, formerly of Linn Primary School, and Holly Campbell, formerly of Ballycarry Primary School, who both achieved 2 A* and 1 A grade. Katy will go on to study Chemistry at the Queen’s University of Belfast while Holly will be heading to the University of Bath to study International Management.

A further 14 pupils went on to secure a minimum of 3 A grades. Of those pupils Courtney Hawthorn, Emily Hill, Samuel Holst, Lauren Linton, Megan Roberts and Claire Shepherd all achieved 1 A* and 2 A grades.

Jack Carson, who also achieved 1A* and 2 A grades in English Literature, Spanish and French, will take his place at Lady Mary Hall, Oxford, where he will study French and Spanish.

Amy Clarke, Toshko Cross, BJ McFaul, Megan McIlwaine, David Moore, Kendra Ross and Jonathan Topping all achieved 3 A grades.

There was also success at ‘AS’ Level where Joel Fekkes, Jaimie Mitchell and Andrew Morton were awarded 4 A grades. A further 10 pupils – Ellie Beckett, Rebekah Boyd, Chloe McIlroy, Jenny Wilson, Callum Critchley, Ryan Gingles, Caitlin Russell, Audrey Ku, Tia Maxwell, Lauren McClean – achieved 3 A grades.

Commenting on the results, Mr Jonathan Wylie, Principal of Larne Grammar School, said: “After the success achieved by our ‘A’ Level students in 2016, which led to Larne Grammar being in the top 20 performing schools in Northern Ireland, we are delighted that, for the second year running, our results are well above the NI Grammar School Average with the consequence that the school is, once again, one of the highest performing in the province.

“The outstanding grades achieved by our pupils are the culmination of a lot of hard work and effort and I congratulate all of our students on their results. Outcomes this good do not happen by accident. Instead they are the product of dedication, hard work and talent on the part of the pupils and staff of the school. I would also highlight the role that our parents have played in supporting their children through their fourteen years of school. I would like to wish our Year 14 students all the best as they leave us to commence university or their chosen career. I look forward to hearing of their future successes.”
