Following on from the publication of A Level results last week, it was the turn of Year 12 pupils at Limavady Grammar School this week to experience the nervous wait for their GCSE results. However, nerves were quickly dispelled as pupils at the Grammar School achieved another excellent set of results this year. Over 95% of all pupils achieved seven or more A*-C grades, and 52% of all grades awarded were A* or A, a tremendous achievement, especially considering the disruption to learning and teaching that pupils have experienced in the course of their school careers due to the pandemic.
Top achieving pupil was Natalia Marablanca, who achieved straight A* grades in all nine of her subjects, whilst another 21 pupils – Emma Alcorn, Ruby Armstrong, Izzy Blair, Sophie Butcher, Annie Devenney, Mackenzie Guthrie, Joshua Hunt, Adam Irons, Emma McCurry, Erin McMichael, Olivia Mornin, Beth Mulgrew, Rudy Mullan, Faith Murphy, Bláithín O’Hara. Joel Osbourne, Annie Robinson, Callum Smith, Rachel Steele, Kacper Szubski and Adam Thompson – all achieved 9 A*/A grades. 43 pupils in total received 7 or more A*/A grades.
Principal Nicola Madden was quick to praise the efforts of all Year 12 pupils and their teachers. “These results are the result of hard work and dedication over a long period of time,” she said. “The last few years have not been easy for our young people. I congratulate them on their determination to succeed and am delighted that their efforts have paid off. I would also like to thank the staff for their tireless efforts in preparing the pupils for their exams. The grades that our pupils have achieved are the result of a collaborative effort – pupils, teachers, support staff and parents all working together – and today we can celebrate the results of this team effort. We look forward to welcoming most of our students back next week to begin their A Level studies and, to those students who will be leaving us, I wish them all the best in whatever paths they have chosen to follow.”
Pupils who may be interested in joining the school to study for AS and A levels should make an appointment to see the Principal by phoning the school office on 02877760950.
