This year was “the best ever” for Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School, according to its headteacher Graham Burks.

Seventy-four per cent of all entries were awarded A* to B grades, an increase of four per cent on the previous ‘best-ever’ result at A-level two years ago.

Mr Burks said: “I am delighted with the outcome for both students and staff who have worked well together.

“This is an outstanding overall result and testament to the tremendous work ethic maintained by students and staff alike. Year 13 have been great fun to work with this year and I am delighted they have achieved so well.

“The results have been hard earned but are well deserved.”

Thirty-two pupils achieved three A grades or better with 16 achieving at least four A*/A grades.

The school’s highest performer this year was Rachel Allen, who achieved a staggering five A* grades at advanced level plus general studies. Hannah Grain came a very close second achieving four A* grades at advanced level. Both will be studying at Cambridge next term.

Mr Burks added: “It’s difficult and often unfair to differentiate between the top performers as so many have done so well and so many have achieved their own personal goal. Our job is to encourage and enable the students to achieve their full potential. The vast majority of our Year 13 have achieved this.

“The school wishes to congratulate the whole year group on their achievements.”
