GCSE Results 2016

“Many congratulations to Year 11 boys at the Grammar School who have received outstanding GCSE results which are testament both to their hard work over two years and to the amazing support they have had from their dedicated teachers. More than a third of the 1270 examinations sat were passed with the top A* grade and the most impressive achievement was in STEM subjects: 58% of boys achieved an A* in Mathematics and half of all results in Chemistry and Physics were also at the top grade. In addition, more than 40% of entries in French and History were graded at A*.

32 boys achieved 7 A*s or more from their nine subject and 48 boys received at least 5 A*s. The boys’ impressive breadth of excellence at GCSE gives them the best possible foundations upon which to build as they begin their A Level study in little over a week’s time. These results will open doors for their future success at some of the most competitive universities in the country.”

– Duncan Byrne, Headmaster

Patrick Carey.

Patrick Carey

Patrick, a 16 year old student at Loughborough Grammar School, faced the same moments of anxious anticipation as hundreds of thousands of students today when he received the envelope containing his GCSE results. He need not have worried. Nine starred ‘A’ grades and two ‘A’s, put him in an elite band of academic performers. What makes him different, however, is his fifth place ranking in the GB U17 Men’s Epée. He is already the East Midlands U16 Champion. When he is not fencing or studying, he can be found practising the violin for his upcoming Grade 8 examination. A levels in History, Religious Studies, French and Latin along with playing in the Grammar School orchestra will keep him busy as he embarks on his Sixth Form career, with the long term plan of reading History at a top university. Clearly, a talent to watch.
