Spalding High School students have been hailed for “an excellent set of results” including an increase in A grades.
Over 57 per cent of pupils achieved A or B grades, the school said,
“We are very proud of our Year 13 students. Despite the current circumstances, this is an excellent set of results and we are
thrilled that the High School students have done so well again this year especially as it follows Ofsted’s re-designation of the
School as “outstanding”.
“Students have had to deal with a number of challenges and uncertainties in recent months and are to be commended for their resilience, perseverance and maturity.
“The current public debate about the examination system applied this year should not diminish the hard work and commitment of students and staff over the two years of sixth form study.
“We have seen an increase in our grades at A/A with 103 A and A grades and over 57% achieving A-B and 100% achievement at Distinction or Merit in the BTEC Extended Certificates.
“This is a positive set of results and the very great majority have secured places at their chosen university. Congratulations go to all of our students on their wonderful achievements.
“In light of the recent announcement of the “triple lock”, students may take the opportunity to appeal their calculated grades and so these statistics are subject to change.
“Our students are progressing on to a number of new opportunities including work, apprenticeships and for the majority, university. Students have secured places at a range of universities, including Oxford and Cambridge to study a variety of disciplines such as Aeronautical Engineering, Computer Science, Anthropology, Mathematics, Law, Primary Teaching, Architecture, Neuroscience, Classical Studies, Midwifery, Equine Science, Business, Politics, Fine Art, Medicine and Modern Languages.
“This been the most uncertain and turbulent period I have known in more than thirty years as a teacher.
“Students (and parents) have had to deal with untold upheaval and I am so proud of the way that they have responded and what they
“We wish all our students the very best of luck and every success in the future and will continue to support all students in securing their progression routes.
“We are still accepting applications for September entry to our Sixth Form and will be available next week when GCSE results are released and would urge students to get in touch.
