Provisional figures released today by Lincolnshire schools, including academies, show the overall number of pupils getting 5 or more A*-Cs (including English and Maths) in their GCSEs has increased this year by 0.8% to 63%. This compares to a national trend that shows a fall in GCSE grades.
Two schools, Caistor Grammar School Academy - for the third year running - and Boston High School, achieved 100% at 5+A-C (including English and Maths). Grantham Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School students achieved the highest grades A/A in at least five subjects.
Five schools made huge improvements of 10% or more on their results from last year in 5+A*-C grades – The King Edward VI Humanities College in Spilsby, William Lovell CE School at Stickney, Monks’ Dyke Technology College at Louth, Castle Academy in Lincoln and Banovallum School in Horncastle.

This is yet another outstanding year of results for Lincolnshire schools. It’s a truly incredible achievement by all young people, their teachers, parents and carers, especially in light of the national fall. The students should feel exceptionally proud of all their hard work._
