Exam Success

‘A’ Level Results Day proved to be a cause for celebration amongst pupils and staff at Larne Grammar School as our Year 14 cohort continued the trend of producing very strong ‘A’ Level outcomes.

With 83.3% of pupils achieving 3 A*-C grades, the Department of Education’s key measure of performance, LGS pupils will have performed well above the NI Grammar School Average for the fourth year in succession.

The percentage of pupils achieving 3 A*-B grades (51.1%) was also the best ever achieved by the school.  Almost three quarters of all entries were graded A*-B, firmly establishing LGS as one of the top performing schools in the country.

Two pupils were awarded an incredible 3 A* grades.  Nicholas Guy, formerly of Olderfleet Primary School, achieving the highest possible grades in Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics and Eva Kelso, formerly of St MacNissi’s Primary School, in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics.  Nicholas will now go on to study Engineering at Durham University whilst Eva will read Medicine at Queens University Belfast.

Star Pupils: Eva and Nicholas were both awarded an incredible 3 A*s

Closely following Nicholas’ and Eva’s success were James Beggs, formerly of Ballycarry Primary School, Hannah Best, Jakob Holst and Meg McCubbin, all formerly of Cairncastle Primary School who each achieved 2 A*s and 1 A.

James, Hannah and Jakob achieved 2 A*s and 1 A

Head Girl Meg achieved 2 A*s and 1 A

A further five pupils, Jamie McKay, Reece Mills, Kim Niblock, Emma O’Sullivan and Bence Tasnadi obtained 1 A* and 2 A grades whilst Joshua Houston gained 3 As.

The ‘AS’ results achieved by our Year 13 pupils were very strong at every measure.  53% of the cohort achieved at least 3 A or B grades which bodes well for another excellent set of ‘A’ Level results in 2020.

Zoe Bain and Emma McAlister were awarded 4 A grades with a further twelve pupils – Thea Bareham, Luke Clarke, Karen Currie, Holly Drummond, Jamie Maybin, Chloe McKay, Lauren McKenna, Abbie McWhirter, Keryn Wilson, Daisie Conway, Sophie Farquhar and Iain Gingles – achieving at least 3 As.

Commenting on these results, Mr Jonathan Wylie, Principal of Larne Grammar School said, ‘I am delighted for all of our pupils and their teachers.  This outstanding set of results is testament to the hard work and determination of our staff, pupils and their families.  Larne Grammar School continues to deliver the highest quality educational experience for the young people of Mid and East Antrim.  We are proud of our students and delighted by their success. On behalf of everyone associated with the school I would like to wish our Year 14 students every success as they leave us to commence university or their chosen career.’

GCSE records smashed at Grammar results day

Larne Grammar School staff and pupils have been celebrating further success this week with the news that the current GCSE cohort have matched last week’s ‘A’ level pupils by achieving the best results in the history of the school. In fact, not only have they recorded the school’s best ever results, they have outperformed all previous years in every single one of the key measures used by the Department of Education.

A particular highlight of the results is that every pupil in the year was awarded at least 5 A* to C grades and over 80% of all entries were awarded an A*, A or B grade. This means that for the third year out of the past four, Larne Grammar School has performed above the Northern Ireland Grammar School Average for the key performance measures of percentage of Year 12 pupils achieving 7 GCSEs & 7 GCSEs including English and Mathematics at Grades A*-C.

While over a quarter of the cohort were awarded at least 8 A grades there was particular delight for Courtney Murray, formerly of Linn Primary School, Matthew Clenaghan, formerly of Olderfleet Primary School and Luke Clarke, formerly of Toreagh Primary School, who were among the top achievers on results day. Courtney and Matthew were both awarded an outstanding 9A* grades and an A grade, as well as a Certificate in Space Science Technology while Luke was awarded an incredible 10 A* grades. 


Top achievers: Matthew, Luke and Courtney

Other top achievers include Jenna McCarlie, Abigail Park, Keryn Wilson and Daisie Conway who were all awarded 8 A*s and 2 A grades. There was also success for Craig Alexander, Holly Drummond and Jamie Maybin who were all awarded 6 A* grades and 4 A grades.

Larne Grammar School Principal, Mr Jonathan Wylie, expressed his pleasure in the performance of his pupils: “2017-18 has been another very successful year in Larne Grammar School culminating in the publication of the ‘A’ Level results last week and these outstanding and unprecedented GCSE results today.

“Our Year 12 pupils have received results which reflect their talent, ability and diligence and which also testify to the support and guidance they have received from their teachers. We look forward to celebrating these results with our pupils over the course of the next couple of days before the hard work starts again at the beginning of a new school year.”
