Sixth-form classes will be bursting at the seams at Bourne Academy next term after the second-best GCSE results in its history.

At least 65 per cent of Year 11 students will start post-16 studies with five or more GCSE grades at A*-C, including English and maths, despite having more end-of-year exams to contend with.

Three students, Terence Burns of Swayfield, near Corby Glen, Sam Harding of Bourne and Hannah Prince of Spalding, achieved six A grades.

Meanwhile, Jessica Shea of Thurlby gained seven A grades and Shannan Hibbins of Bourne collected four A*s.

Headteacher Laurence Reilly said: “I am delighted that at least 65 per cent of our Year 11 students have achieved five or more GCSE grades at grade C or above, including English and maths.

“This was more difficult this year due to the increased number of examinations they had to sit at the end of their courses.

“As a consequence of this success, a record number of applicants for entry into our sixth form have achieved the entrance criteria of six GCSEs at grade C or above.

“We will have more than 200 young people studying A-levels and BTEC (Business and Technology Education Council) Level 3 courses from September.”
