All students at Stickney’s William Lovell Academy earned at least five GCSE passes in a ‘particularly pleasing’ set of exam results.

Five GCSE passes at A* to C were achieved by 48 per cent of pupils at the school.

Headteacher Andrew Fulbrook said: “This is particularly pleasing because we are in a selective county and yet our intake encompasses the full range of ability with no entry selection or filtering.

“Examination achievement is an important aspect of the education we provide but we do not manipulate entry to either courses or exams to improve our statistics.

“William Lovell Academy offers a traditional, academic, curriculum that is designed to ensure that all pupils leave us with qualifications that will be of value to them throughout their lives.

“Year on year, each cohort is different and all we can ask is that pupils do their best – and they have!

“We are very, very proud of our pupils, well done.”
