Thursday 9.30am - King Edward VI Grammar School in Louth is celebrating record breaking A-Level results today.
“These are our best A Level results in the School’s entire history, represent yet another record breaking year for the School, and are a real testament to the collaborative and supportive relationships that exist here between the staff and the pupils. In many ways this year group personifies what we stand for as a School: excellent results combined with outstanding contributions to the wider life of the school and community,” said James Lascelles, Headmaster.
There was a continued rising trend at A-Level - 43 per cent of entries were graded at A*/A up on 2012, 67 per cent of students achieved A*-B Up on 2012
The Sutton Trust ranked King Edward VI Grammar School second in Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire for the percentage of pupils going on to University.
Initial results indicate that this trend continues with vast majority of pupils achieving their University offer on the day: a small number are close and will need to check with their provider but the school anticipates the vast majority of these will be accepted within a day or two.
KEVIGS’ outstanding results included those of Charlotte Ottaway, who earned three A*s and an A and is going on to Cambridge University to study History.
She said: “I was predicted high grades but they better than I could have hoped.
“My grandma will be so proud.”
Charlotte revealed she’d like to go on to work in a museum after completing her history degree.
Mr Lascelles continued: “We’re especially delighted in the context of a general downward trend nationally.
“They are a phenomenal bunch of kids, they deserve every success.
“It’s a testament to our teaching staff and the addition of our new director of 6th form and our new 6th form centre.”
