PUPILS across the town and district have been collecting their GCSE results today (Wednesday) with several school’s reporting a strong year.

Our reporters have been out and about and getting in touch with school’s to try and collate the results so you can see how your schools have done.

Keep an eye on this website and your local newspaper next week for a full round-up and pictures from the schools.

The first school celebrating another year of ‘strong’ GCSE results from their year 11 pupils is Boston Grammar School.

With 96 per cent of boys achieving five A*-C grades including English and Maths and 42 per cent of them getting at least five A*-A grades.

They include Michael Craven who gained 10.5 A*s and one distinction, Ali Haider, with 9.5 A*s and one distinction and Anish Pathak with 7.5 A*s, 2 As and one distinction.

Headteacher Paul Marsh said: “It’s always pleasing when students get the success they deserve.

“These results represent the culmination of many months of hard work, ably supported by teachers and parents alike, and now the boys can look forward to moving onto their chosen futures.”

Out of the 976 entries, 41 per cent received either an A or A* grade.

The grammar school also corrected an error submitted to the Standard last week when some of the 2010 A-level data was mixed in with this year’s results.

A spokesman said: “We would also like to correct the overall A-level percentages for Boston Grammar School, where we had a 99 per cent pass rate this year, with 55 per cent of all grades achieved being awarded at A*, A or B.”

As well as Christopher Cook and Thomas Henry who were in last week’s paper, other students who performed well were Jeremy Baily with an A* and two As, Peter Brennan with three As, Craig Melvin with two A*s and an A, Jamie Saggs with two As and an A* and Alex Sawer with two A*s and an A.
