Exam accolades for Loreto students

A current student and two former students from Loreto College Coleraine have been recognised among the very top students achieving A* grades in a variety of subjects in last summer’s CCEA GCSE and A level examinations.

At A level, Natalie Costello was placed first among all those who entered CCEA A level Geography and CCEA A level Economics. This is a remarkable achievement for Natalie, who has now taken up a place to read Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast.

Also at A level, James McCullagh was placed second among all those who sat CCEA A level Economics. James, a well-known figure who finished as runner-up in the BBC’s Young Apprentice 2011, took first place in GCSE Economics in 2010, and is now working for Saatchi & Saatchi in London.

At GCSE level, there was another success for the Loreto College Economics Department, as Markus Condren was placed second among all those who took CCEA GCSE Economics. Markus has returned to Loreto College this year to study Biology, Chemistry, Economics and Mathematics.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, congratulated all three students and their teachers: Miss E A Curry and Mr L Shaw (Geography), and Mr G McGouran and Miss S O’Neill (Economics) on these wonderful achievements, on behalf of all the staff and students of the College.
