Exam Success

Larne Grammar pupils achieve best ‘A’ Level results in school’s history

Larne Grammar School staff and pupils have been celebrating the news that the school’s A Level results have improved for the fourth year in a row. This cohort, however, can claim their own little bit of history by securing the best ever set of results in the history of the school.

The improvement in ‘A’ Level results has been an area of focus for the school during the course of the past four years. With 82.5% of pupils achieving 3 A*-C grades, the Department of Education’s key measure of performance, the school will score well above the NI Grammar School Average, meaning that Larne Grammar School will have been one of the top performing schools in the country.

The highest performer in the year group was Paul Cameron, formerly of Linn Primary School, who achieved an incredible 3 A*s and 1 A grade in Biology, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. His fantastic results have enabled him to take up a place at Imperial College, London where he will study Bioengineering.  A clearly delighted Paul said: “I keep checking the tracking for my university course because I can’t believe  this has happened. It feels pretty incredible to get these results. I'm over the moon.”

A further six pupils achieved 3 A grades or better.  Ellie Carmichael, Kiera McKay and Callum McRoberts all achieved 1 A* and 2 As while Emma Guy, Christie Miskelly and Natasha Rainey obtained 3 A grades. Sarah Armstrong was awarded 2 As and 2 Bs.

There was also success at AS Level where Emily Hill, Samuel Holst, BJ McFaul and Claire Shepherd were awarded 4 A grades. A further 11 pupils – Katy Aston, Toshko Bletsov, Ethan Campbell, Holly Campbell, Jack Carson, David Gilliland, Nathan Joel, Jonny McIlroy, Megan McIlwaine, Megan Roberts and Andrew Steward – gained 3 As and 1 B while Conliane Devlin and Lauren Linton were awarded 3 As and 1 C.

Commenting on the success of this year’s results Principal Jonathan Wylie said: "Our ‘A’ Level students have really excelled this year. To have achieved the best ‘A’ Level results in the school’s history is a remarkable achievement and is a testament to the talent, ability and hard work of all of our pupils. The staff who have supported them throughout their time in the school are delighted with their success and we wish them well as they move on to further study or employment."

Further success for Grammar pupils as GCSE results are released

Following on from the success of last week’s A-Level results, which were the best ever in the history of the school, Larne Grammar pupils and staff have been toasting the successes of their current GCSE group.

With the vast majority of pupils matching or exceeding their expectations, with 96% achieving at least five A* to C grades, there was particular cause for celebration for David Balmer and his family with the news that he achieved an incredible 10 A* grades.

David, who was formerly a pupil of Moyle Primary School, bagged this outstanding set of grades in English, English Literature, French, History, Information Technology, Mathematics, Double Award Science, Spanish and Religious Studies.

Clearly delighted with his results David said: “I’m over the moon to receive a set of results like this. I would like to thank all of my teachers who worked hard with me over the past two years.”

David will now go on to study Spanish, History, French and Biology at AS Level with the hope of studying French and Spanish at University.

Chloe, formerly a pupil of Larne & Inver Primary School, achieved her set of grades in English Literature, Further Mathematics, French, Spanish, Double Award Science, Mathematics, English, Information Technology and Religious Education. She will now go on to study Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Spanish.

Chloe commented that: "I am so pleased with my results, particularly my A* grade in Further Maths."

Hot on David and Chloe's heels were Natasha McGowan, formerly of Lourdes Primary School, and Andrew Morton, formerly of Olderfleet Primary School. Both of these pupils were awarded 8 A*s and 2 A grades. 

A further nine pupils, Jacob Carmichael, Rebekah Boyd, Ellie Beckett, Caitlin Russell, Jenny Wilson, Robert Boyle, Joel Fekkes, Libby Elliott, Tanisha Bartley and Katie Buckley all achieved eight A* or A grades.

“I warmly congratulate all of our pupils on their examination success,” said Larne Grammar School Principal, Jonathan Wylie.

“I also want to thank the staff of the school who have enabled our pupils to fulfil their potential and the parents who have supported their children through the exam process.

“I look forward to welcoming the vast majority of our Year 12 pupils back into Year 13 to begin their ‘A’ Level studies and wish those students who are leaving us every success as they continue their education or move into training or employment.”
