Pupils across the grammar school from lower school to upper were celebrated for their success and achievements over the last year before their new school year started in September.

Headteacher at the Louth grammar school, James Lascelles said: “In addition to the many achievements made by our lower school pupils, our Y13 students have made significant personal achievements.

“This is thanks to our holistic approach to education thus helping developing them into well rounded individuals who are not just ready for university but prepared for life.

“These achievements include the stellar achievement of Warrant Officer Annie Cleve of King Edward VI Grammar School Combined Cadet Force.”
