Laura's 7 A1s in the Leaving Cert

Villiers is celebrating double success with two students with a clean slate of As in Leaving Cert 2016. Laura Cooke has an impressive 7 A1s to her credit, while Isabel Schulte-Austum has a superb 4 A1s and 3 A2s.

Both girls are highly successful in all aspects of their lives and have exciting plans for the future.

Laura is studying Medicine in NUIG, where she joins her brother, also a past pupil of Villiers, and already studying Medicine in the university. Laura was Head Girl in Villiers and combined a busy study schedule with an equally busy sporting schedule, playing on School hockey teams, and managing a very successful cycling career.

Isabel has also moved beyond the Leaving Certificate having taken her place in the highly prestigious Sciences Po University Paris, whose alumni include 15 of the most recent French Prime Ministers and Presidents, including Francois Hollande, Jacques Chirac and Francois Mitterand. Isabel is a young lady we will certainly see on the international stage in the very near future.

Headmistress Ms Storey was delighted with the results and paid tribute to all of the students and their teachers. “Attainment is personal,” she said, “and we are pleased to see such a well-rounded group of young people looking forward to their university and college offers with such confidence. We know they will take their next steps with self-assurance and poise although we will miss them.”
