The outgoing principal of Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College in Louth and Mablethorpe has praised this year’s ‘superb’ A-Level results.

Principal, Dr Chris Rolph, was speaking after the college announced on Thursday that results surpassed last year’s A-Level and BTEC results with nearly 100 per cent pass rates.

Dr Chris Rolph, said: “These superb results are testament to the hard work put in by the students, supported by their teachers.

“Overall 48 per cent of A-Level and BTEC grades were achieved at A*-B, these figures are outstanding and well above last year’s figure.”

Dr Rolph was particularly pleased as this will be his last set of A level results before he moves on to take up a new post in Grimsby in September.

Students with the highest point scores include Robyn Burton, Lee Gillham, Kirby Perkins and Drew Ramsey. Liam Frater, with grades A*A*A, was delighted to be able to confirm his place at Sheffield Hallam where he hopes to continue to play basketball at the highest level whilst teaching sport and exercise science.

Becky Oliver was one of the few students who didn’t check her results on the UCAS website in the early hours of the morning: despite initial nerves she was thrilled to open her envelope which contained grades AAB.

Becky will be taking a gap year with VSO before heading off to university.

Meanwhile James Snowden is going as far as Plymouth University to study politics and economics, and Ed Keyes is set to go on to study agriculture.
