You study hard, become a maths whizz kid, come first in your GCSEs and what do you get? A Stormont meeting with the DUP and Sinn Fein.

Kathryn Gray, a Year 13 student at Wellington College, has a bright future ahead of her after she achieved the highest possible standard in the GCSE further maths exam in Northern Ireland.

Yesterday, she was invited to Stormont by the First Minister and Education Minster to receive congratulations on her amazing achievement. While the GCSE is a stepping stone to A-level maths, Kathryn hopes to pursue a career in zoology.

Her principal, Nicola Connery, said: “We are delighted that Kathryn has done so well, as a reflection of all the hard work done by our dedicated maths department.”
