I would like to begin with welcoming the Year 8 pupils to a new, weird and wonderful year at RBAI and hope that their experiences remain relatively unaffected by Corona-19 and all the necessary precautions.

Very pleasing results and accomplishments were recorded by Larmor House pupils, ranging from GCSE to A-levels: Matthew Marron at GCSE achieved more A grades than there are in this entire report, scoring an excellent 36 points; Ben Magee followed with 25 points and both Luke Blair and Vince Bui scored 24.5 points. At AS-level, Sam McKee achieved 4 As, while Paddy Eames and Luke Malcolm achieved 3 As. At A-level, Callum Harley achieved 2 A*s and 2 As, Solomon Trimble achieved 2 A*s and 1 A; Hugo Ellerby received 3 As, while Brett Eastwood and James Rose achieved 2A*s and an A; Nathan Oakman and Daniel Ramsey achieved 1A* and 2 A grades.

Larmor House had an excellent year within the school, winning House basketball and badminton competitions and finishing runners up in volleyball and rugby. The Lower School pupils also had some notable accomplishments: Benjamin McCarten (Year 8) won the U12 Northern Ireland 40m Hurdle title. In Year 9, Patrick Morgan and Dennis Ursu won the quiz trophy with the Scouts and Patrick Morgan also ran in the Ulster Schools trials. Sebastian Clark, Adam Boyd, Iaith Hanash, Daniel Williams won the Year 8 rugby tournament.

In the Upper School, in Year 11, Scott McElhinney and Matthew Mooney reached the final of the Ulster Badminton finals, as well as Scott McElihinney, Freddie Clark and Lorcan Donnelly finishing 2nd in the RBAI rugby tournament. Henry Keys and Ryan Stewart won the West Belfast Archery competition and finished 3rd in the Northern Ireland finals. Henry Keys also won the Northern Ireland Best Archer award. In Year 12, Dan Smith and Matthew Cheung represented both 1st XI and Ulster hockey under 16. Matthew Cheung played for RBAI badminton team that won the Ulster Senior Cup; he also won the Ulster Junior title. Rory Ellerby was selected for Under 18 Ulster Rugby squad and represented Ireland with the Under 15 cricket squad. Max Robinson completed the Duke of Edinburgh’s Silver Award, in addition to Dan Smith, Michael Montgomery, Josh Reid and David Livingstone completing their Bronze Awards. Josh Reid also won Gold at the British Junior Championships in Taekwondo, to cap an amazing year for Larmor House pupils.

Finally, I would like to thank Mr Monteith and all the tutors for the work and time they put in to ensure every pupil has the opportunity to fulfill their potential. I’m excited to see what this year brings Larmor and would like to wish everyone well.
