Spalding High School’s GCSE students achieved a 98 per cent A*-C pass rate – almost a staggering 30 per cent above the national figure.
Overall, the school’s results were a little down on previous years, but headmistress Michele Anderson said schools had been warned to expect “variability” by the exam regulator, Ofqual.
Some 96 per cent of the school’s students achieved the Government’s benchmark basics measure of five A*-C passes, including English and maths.
Forty-two per cent of all grades were A*-A and 75 per cent of all grades were A*-B.
The top scholar out of 20 outstanding performances was Amy Tall, who was celebrating ten A*s and an A.
Mrs Anderson said: “These GCSE results remain a testament to the very high standards set at the school and to the hard work of both students and staff, supported by parents and governors.”
