INDIVIDUAL GCSE successes were being praised at Gleed Girls’ Technology College in Spalding, despite a “disappointing” set of results overall.
Headteacher Janet Daniels said she was “disappointed” with the 13 per cent drop in the number of pupils achieving five A* to C grades, including maths and English.
A total of 38 per cent of the year 11 group achieved the benchmark this year, compared to 51 per cent in 2010.
Mrs Daniels said: “I am disappointed with the overall results but individuals have done brilliantly.
“There will be lots of changes and we are moving forward with joining with the boys.”
Gleed Girls’ Technology College and Gleed Boys’ School will become federated from September, with a view to becoming an academy.
She added: “The girls have been very excited and pleased. It’s lovely to see them looking forward to the next stage of their lives.”
