Bourne Grammar School achieved it best ever results with 23 pupils gaining all A* or A grades
An impressive 97 per cent of all GCSE grades gained at the school were grade C or better.
Bourne Grammar School headteacher Jonathan Maddox said: “We have a very sophisticated target-setting and monitoring system so we knew that the results would be good, but there is much concern nationally about this year’s results so there was some nervousness as our own came in.
“To say that we were delighted when we received the results would be an understatement; this year’s are truly impressive.
“They say a lot about the quality of our students and of the effort they put into their studies, alongside all the many other good things they do here.
“They are testament too to the exceptional standards of teaching and pastoral care that our students enjoy.”
The school achieved remarkable success in its science teaching with 100 per cent of all GCSE grades in chemistry either an A* or A grade.
