THE Priory Ruskin Academy is celebrating being in the top 25 per cent of schools nationally.

Headteacher Clive Shepherd said 88 per cent got at least five A-C grades and 45 per cent got five A-C grades, including maths and English.

He said: “We are over the moon. There are some happy faces here today.”

Shannon Sentance was one of the students who was pleased with her grades.

She said: “They are better than expected. I’m going to Grantham College to do my A-levels.

“It was nerve-racking this morning but I didn’t think about it until then.”

Her friend Rosie Haith was also pleased.

She said: “I got on really well I think. I was overjoyed when I first opened the envelope and saw what I’d got.”

Rupert Tyrer already had an unconditional offer to an arts course in Newark and a conditional offer to a specialist music college in Lincoln.

He said: “I did alright and I’ve now got some decision making to do. I’m actually quite pleased with my results, I did my best, I can’t do anymore than that.”

Mitchell Anderson, who is hoping to attend Grantham College in September, was not as pleased with his results.

He said: “They were rubbish, but I got a C in maths, which was better than expected. I’m looking forward to going to college and having more freedom.”
