Students from King Edward VI Grammar School in Louth excitedly woke up early this morning (Thursday) to see if all their hard work has paid off in their GCSE results.
60 per cent of pupils from the local grammar school achieved five or more A* or A’s at GCSE and out of all entries, 84 per cent were graded at A*-B.
Headmaster James Lascelles said: “It has been an exceptionally rewarding day to see the notable achievements made by many of our pupils.
“A special mention should go to Ben Watcham for outstanding achievement in getting nine A*s and an A grade: at a time when there is a national pressure to push the number of A* grades down this is a truly amazing achievement.
“Similar achievements include Christopher Bell, Sophie Claypole, Dominic Kirkham, Malik Majeed, Sarah Roncetti, Maryam Latif, and Ellen Parkes who all achieved nine or more A* and A grades.”
Mr Lascelles also added: “This year group has produced another historic set of results and I am truly impressed with the dedication displayed by staff, pupils and parents to achieve this significant set of results.
“We sent out a clear message of support putting on additional workshops and they have responded magnificently to that offer, working closely with staff and departments.
“My wholehearted congratulations to the staff and the pupils for a tremendous team effort.”
