Hedateacher Chris Beckett said the results had “exceeded all expectations”.
At Spalding Grammar School headteacher Nigel Ryan compared the successes of his students with those of the GB Team at the recent London 2012 Olympics, saying they were now in a strong position to go and make their mark in the wider world.
Overall the school’s results were better than last year, with star pupil being Peter Sibley, of Long Sutton, with A* in Latin and Maths and As in Economics and German.
He will now study Law at Cambridge.
