Headmaster, Duncan Byrne, said: “These are outstanding A Level results that reflect the consistent hard work of our Sixth Formers and the expert guidance of their dedicated teachers. These grades have opened doors to the most competitive university courses in the country, which give the boys the best possible grounding for their future careers.

“What the grades don’t show, however, is the breadth of boys’ contributions to LGS over 7 years or more. The academic achievement of Loughborough Grammar School students is complemented by their excellence in sport, music, drama and in the community service and other activities that have developed their character, so that they leave us ready to play a role as responsible citizens in society.”

I wish them all the best as they embark on the next phase of their life, wherever it may take them.”
