A former student from Loreto College Coleraine has been recognised among the very top students achieving A* grades in last summer’s CCEA A Level examinations. 

On Tuesday 18 December, 136 local learners received recognition for their studies at the Council for the Curriculum Examinations and Assessment’s (CCEA) largest Awards Ceremony. Attended by more than 650 guests, Celebrate with CCEA recognised the outstanding achievements of first place students in CCEA’s GCSE and GCE qualifications and learners nominated by teachers and tutors in CCEA’s Technical Qualifications.

CCEA’s Chief Executive, Justin Edwards congratulated the learners for their achievements saying:
“This evening, we are delighted to be hosting, for the first time, an inclusive award ceremony, celebrating our Technical Learners of the Year, alongside our top students in GCSE and GCE qualifications. This is the largest award ceremony CCEA has organised and we feel privileged that learners, families, schools and colleges have joined us tonight in making it such a memorable occasion. Well done to all of the winners and to those who have played a part in their success.”

Former Loreto College student Molly Brennan was placed first in A Level Physics.  Molly has now left Loreto College to begin her University studies at Durham, where she is reading Mathematics.  Molly scored a wonderful three A* grades in her A levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics, as well as an A at AS Chemistry.  She was recently presented with an Institute of Physics in Ireland Award to recognise her achievement in A Level Physics, and two years ago, she was placed joint First in GCSE Further Mathematics and Third in GCSE Chemistry.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, congratulated Molly and her Physics teachers, Mrs Maeve Close and Mrs Katrina Brolly on these wonderful achievements, on behalf of all the staff and students of the College.
