Skegness Grammar’s sixth form students have been congratulated for achieving the best results in the school’s recent history.

More than a quarter of students achieved grade A* or A and 60 per cent were awarded grade B or higher - 13 per cent above last year’s results and comfortably the best in the past four years.

Associate head teacher Simon Sprague said: “These results are outstanding and represent Skegness Grammar School’s commitment to academic excellence.

“The results will enable many of our students to continue their education at the UK’s top universities.

“I would also like to thank the students’ subject teachers whose effort and commitment to the students’ progress should not go unrecognised.

“Finally I would like to wish the students all the very best as they begin an exciting stage in their lives.”

Nearly all of the students - 99.4 per cent - passed their exams, with a number achieving ‘superb individual performances worthy of special mention’.

Easton Barker, Matthew Champion, Oliver Jackson, Vincent Lo, Dan Nuttall, Helen Singleton, Adam Wood and Alec Young each gained at least three grades at A* or A.

Head of sixth form Jay Sturman said: “These results are a testimony to the students’ efforts over the last two years.

“We have seen an increase in successful applications to Russell Group Universities and I am delighted that our students are aiming higher and achieving high goals.”

The school has also reported its AS results were ‘very promising’ and showed ‘significant progress’ from last year’s scores.

Dom Beesley, Joseph Brown, Ashley Farmer, Connie Foster, Alex Hawkins, Luke Haywood, Polly Jacobs, Toto Leung, Tom Nuttall, Gemma Pimlott, Lottie Shovlar, Kitty Stephenson, Eric Tam and Sarah Taylor, have all been praised for their excellent results,

Chairman of governors Jamie Gordon said: “Speaking as a parent of a year 13 student who has shared the pressures of recent months, I am delighted for all the students, staff and parents at SGS.

“These are an excellent set of academic results and my thanks go to the dedicated staff who have worked so hard to prepare the students for their academic examinations.

“SGS continues to enhance its reputation at A Level, attracting day students and boarders seeking a pathway to Britain’s best universities.”
