Grammar pupils excel in GCSE examinations

Following on from a record breaking set of ‘A’ Level results last week the staff and pupils of Larne Grammar School have been celebrating the outstanding successes of the current GCSE cohort.

The strength and depth of this particular group of pupils can be seen by the fact over three quarters of all entries have been awarded an A*, A or B grade. This means that Larne Grammar School will have performed above the Northern Ireland Grammar School average in all four of the key measures used by the Department of Education.

There was, however, cause for celebration for a number of pupils who bagged an incredible 10 A* grades in the GCSE examinations.

Top achiever was Jakob Holst, formerly of Cairncastle Primary School, who was awarded an outstanding 10 A* grades and 1 A grade. His achievements are particularly impressive when consideration is given to the high academic content of the courses that he studied.  The combination of Design and Technology, English Language, French, Information Technology, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Double Award Science, Spanish, Religious Studies and German is one that is sure to test even the best of pupils but Jakob has excelled in all of these subjects.

Jakob, who will now study Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics at ‘A’ Level, hopes to go on to study Mathematics or Engineering at University. Commenting on his incredible achievement Jakob said: “I’m ecstatic about my results. I was really worried about them last night and didn’t get much sleep so to come in today and see these grades is such a relief.”

Hot on the heels of Jakob were James Beggs, Nicholas Guy and Bence Tasnadi who all achieved a full set of 10 A* grades. Nicola McAuley, Kaitlyn Boyd, Eva Kelso, Meg McCubbin, Luke McKay and Reece Mills were next with 8 A* and 2 A grades. There was also success for Hannah Liddle with 7A* grades, 2 A grades and a B grade.

Grammar School Principal, Mr Jonathan Wylie, expressed his pleasure in the performance of his pupils: “These results provide further cause for celebration, following on from last week’s record-breaking ‘A’ Level success.

“Congratulations to all of our Year 12 pupils whose hard work has been rewarded today. We look forward to the vast majority of our students returning to the school to study in Sixth Form and we wish our leavers all the best for the future.”
