‘Delighted’ head hails William Lovell GCSE record breakers

WILLIAM Lovell headteacher Andrew Fulbrook has hailed his ‘outstanding’ students for delivering the Stickney school’s record GCSE results.

The school, which reopens as an academy in September, saw 67 per cent of its year 11 cohort achieve five or more GCSEs, including English and Maths, at C or higher.

That is significantly above a new tougher target of 50 per cent set by Michael Gove and see be comfortably above the national average.

In English 80 per cent earned A* to C, while 72 per cent achieved the same in Maths.

Mr Fulbrook said: “I believe that these results will stand out as being amongst the best in the country, let alone county.”
