Pupils of Walton Girls’ High School have achieved a total of 58 A* grades and 154 A grades in this year’s GCSE exams, an increase on last year’s figures.

The Grantham school has reported a 77 per cent pass rate at A*-C, with principal Caroline Saxelby confident that the results will see the school remain in the top 20 per cent nationally for the progress students make.

Across the academy, 13 subjects achieved 75 per cent A*-C grades, which Ms Saxelby said was evidence of the high quality of teaching and the “extremely positive relationships staff and students enjoy”.

She added: “Our staff and students have worked hard right up until the last minute, attending revision sessions after school, before school and during the school holidays. There is a real desire to achieve and expectations are relentlessly high. Many students have not only met their target grades, but have exceeded them.

“Our results are testimony to our academy motto: ‘Everyone achieving their full potential’. Our focus is always to get the best outcomes for our students.

“The results this year show how we are driving the academy forward enabling our students to soar to even greater heights.”
