The West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s says more pupils than ever have achieved A and B grades in the core subjects.

Every student has secured a place in further education, employment or training. More than half will start Level 3 A-Level equivalent courses at Grantham College.

A total of 85 per cent of students achieved five GCSE grades at A*-C exceeding the school’s givernment target of 69 per cent.

Among the highest achievers was Darcy Munn who achieved A*s in Additional Science and Performing Arts, A grades in English, Maths, Spanish, History, Science and ICT and B grades in French and Dance.

Joel Nash achieved an A in English, Bs in French, Performing Arts, and Travel and Tourism. Joel said: “I am really pleased. I am keeping my options open, but I can get in touch with all the schools with sixth forms now and it will be a lot easier.”

Bethany Rothery and katie Smith became the academy’s first ever triple scientists with five science B grades between them. Four students became triple linguists for the first time with Vasiliki Ntalampira boasting four language GCSE passes at C and above and her cousin and Head Girl Alexandra Ntalampira achieving an A in Greek A-Level.

Head Boy Callum Anderson complemented his A grade in English and Bs in Maths and Sciences with A*s in ICT, Engineering and Media.

Principal Louise Bennett said: “I would like to congratulate every student on their success and thank all staff and parents for their dedication and commitment, which together has ensured that every student has found their element and is well equipped for the future.”
