It has been another “very successful year” for A-level students at Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School, said headteacher Graham Burks.
The percentage of students gaining A*-B grades at advanced level, excluding general studies, is 66 per cent.
Mr Burks said he was tremendously proud of the achievements of both his students and staff, adding that despite anxiety over potential grade deflation students at KGGS have achieved “tremendously well”.
He said: “It’s been a tough year with the school community having to adopt different strategies due to the new linear approach and no examinations in January. It’s been difficult for the girls, I know they have worried, but overall they have achieved tremendously.
“I am both proud and delighted for them. We are now interested to see how others have fared and what has taken place nationally. It is the outcome for the students that matters to us most and so as usual we will be monitoring closely the numbers of students gaining their first choice option post 18.)
Students successful in gaining their first choice universities included five medics, a veterinary medic and a dentist, with a further three students going to Cambridge.
