King Edward VI School pupils in Spilsby have been celebrating after opening their highly anticipated GCSE results this morning (Thursday, August 21).

Among the smiling faces was Thomas Carr who achieved 11 A*/A grades.

He said: “I just can’t stop looking at my grades!”

There was a high number of other students celebrating 10 or more GCSEs, the school reported.

Young people taking business studies and languages also secured some of the best individual subject results in the academy’s history, it said.

Margaret Reeve, principal, said: “I would like to say well done to our students for their achievements.

“Just two years ago we were among the top five most-improved schools in the region. Like many schools across the country we have struggled to maintain that success this year, but there is still much to smile about.”

She added: “We have many students on grade boundaries and we will be supporting these young people over the coming days. This remains an exciting time for our academy as we are shortly opening our new Sixth Form Centre, and it is fantastic that so many of our talented students getting their results at the moment will benefit from what the centre has to offer.”

The academy’s GCSE English literature results in Year 10 were also particularly strong, the school reported, with many A* and A grades,
