But the highlight was the school’s 12 per cent return on A* grades, up one per cent on last year.

One of the success stories was Georgie Ground of Gedney Hill who achieved A*s in maths, further maths and biology,

Georgie said: “I don’t really know what I’m feeling, I’m just shocked and I’m very pleased with my results.”

The triple A* student added that she eventually planned to study for an accountancy degree at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, but felt that she wasn’t ready to do so at the moment.

Headmistress Michele Anderson said: “Yet again, our students have done remarkably well at A-level this year and we are very pleased that the percentage of A* grades has increased again this year.

“Students at Spalding High School work very hard and they are incredibly well-supported by a committed and experienced team of staff, along with a supportive parent body.”
