Spalding High School students collecting their GCSE results today have smiles as big as their A-level counterparts did last week.

More than 20 Year 11 students collected 10 or more A* grades this year, helping the school achieve a 92 per cent level for those with at least five A* to C grades, compared to a national average of 69 per cent.

Almost all students will be staying on at Spalding High School for their A-level studies from September, boosted by a 74 per cent return on those achieving five or more A* to C grades.

Students who were particularly impressive included Jessica Jacob with ten A*s, while both Niamh O’Connor and Rebecca Wright picked up 10A*s and one A grade.

Headmistress Michele Anderson said: “We are thrilled that yet again this year the higher GCSE grades have increased and 47 per cent of all grades achieved were A* or A.

“This is a lovely cohort of young women who have worked incredibly hard over the last five years to do so well at Spalding High School.
