Impressive results from Spalding High School once again

Spalding High School students have once again bagged an impressive set of A-level results.

There was a 100 per cent pass rate in all subject areas for the 120 students sitting the exam this summer.

That has been the norm at the school for several years, according to headmaster Tim Clark, who says nearly ten per cent of grades were at A*, as was the case last year.

However, a third of all grades were either A* or A and over 60 per cent were at A* to B, and those two figures are slightly up on last year.

Mr Clark said eight subject departments realised at least 75 per cent at grades A* to B, including physics and further maths.

Of the students, 14 attained at least three A grades and, of those, three pupils achieved an impressive four As – they were Bethan Salmon, of West Pinchbeck, Natalie Biggs of Holbeach and Eleanor Butler, believed to live near Donington, but on holiday in Turkey on results day.

Mr Clark said: “I am very, very pleased. It’s a solid and sound set of grades, very similar to last year and slightly up on top grades.

“Most students either attained or exceeded target, which is tremendous.”

Mr Clark’s feelings were mixed with sadness as he is leaving after 14 years at the school, almost 12 years as headmaster.
