Students at Spalding High School celebrate A-level success.

Two Spalding schools celebrate 100 per cent A-level pass rate

Two Spalding secondary schools are among nine across the county to achieve a 100 per cent pass rate in A-levels.

The High School and the Sir John Gleed School took the honours, as early figures available from 30 out of 40 of the county’s sixth forms show that Lincolnshire has outperformed the England average in almost all measures.
At 99.1 per cent, the percentage of Lincolnshire students passing A-levels is ahead of the England average by 1.1 per cent.
Nine Lincolnshire schools (30 per cent) achieved a percentage of A* grades above the national average, and 12 (40 per cent) have achieved more A*-A passes at A-level than national.
A total of 15 out of the 30 schools have a percentage of pupils achieving three or more A-level passes at A*-E of 90 per cent or more, with three hitting 100 per cent for three or more passes.
Coun Patricia Bradwell, Executive Councillor for Children’s Services at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “A-levels are the gold standard examinations.
“In this Olympic year, we have seen how well our athletes have done in Rio and we all recognise how hard they have had to train.
“Our A-level students are no different.
“Success at A-level does not happen by magic.
“It is only through the continuing hard work of students and teachers, supported by parents and carers, that these fantastic results have been achieved.
“Well done to all our students.”
The system of awarding grades for students at post 16 has changed since last year, which means that comparing Lincolnshire’s results this year with last year is more difficult.
Debbie Barnes, Director of Children’s Services said: “Lots of changes have taken place as far as A-level examinations are concerned and there are more changes to come.
“Yet Lincolnshire schools and Lincolnshire students have still shown that they have what it takes to compete.
“I would like to give my sincere congratulations and wish all our students the very best for the future.
“Their new qualifications will really help them to progress.”
