Successful A-level students have closed their school books and are now preparing to open a new chapter in their lives in Bourne and Deeping St James.
Doors are being opened to students at Bourne Grammar School at some of the most hotly contested universities in the country, including Oxford and Cambridge.
Overall, 99.3 per cent of the 354 A-Level examinations taken were passed.
Three students achieved a clean sweep of three A* grades whilst 20 achieved AAA or better.
Ten per cent of all grades were A* grades and just over 36 per cent of all A-Level grades were A* or A grades.
Jonathan Maddox, headteacher, said: “As always it was a great pleasure to share in our students’ success.
“Places on the best courses at the best universities continue to be fiercely competed for and students need to be very well prepared.
“Our students achieve impressive results which means that more doors are open for them; they have the best choice of the best courses at the best universities, which means the best start to their lives after school.”
Changing to academy status has brought rewards for students at Bourne Academy.
Laurence Reilly, headteacher, is delighted Bourne Academy’s first set of A-Level results have improved upon the previous year when the school operated as The Robert Manning College.
He said: “The pass rate was 93 per cent and the average points score per entry, published annually on the DfE website, has increased.
“This means all of our students applying for university should be able to secure their places.”
The Deepings School is celebrating its best ever set of A-level results.
With an overall pass rate of 99 per cent, the majority of students will be accepted into their first choice of university.
Chris Beckett, headteacher, said: “These are superb results and reflect the efforts of a wonderful set of students. Staff, parents and the wider community can feel very proud of the achievements of our fantastic young people.”
