BOSTON High School students were celebrating more than just good results on Thursday, as the school achieved a first in its history.

The pass rate at the school was 100 per cent for the first time since the school was established with half of all the entries resulting in A*-B grades and 20 per cent resulting in A*-A grades.

Head teacher Dr Jason Howard said: “I’m delighted that Boston High School students have achieved so highly and our A2 results are some of the best in the school’s history.

“In a number of subjects, over 70 per cent of all entries resulted in the award of an A*, an A or a B grade. Every student has passed every subject and almost all of our students will be accepted by either their first or second choice universities.

“Our AS students also deserve congratulation – their results are the best in the school’s history and the proportion of A-B grades awarded has increased substantially.”

Pupil Oliver Sharpey, who got an A and two Cs, plans to spend a year travelling before applying for university.

He said: “I aimed pretty high which is what I got.”

The school said the following Year 13 students performed particularly well: Verity Washington, Thea Moody, Naomi Johnson, Shannon Holland-Houghton, Hannah Priestley, Brodie Harman, Samantha Saw, Bethany Lincoln, Rebecca Rylott, Emily Aisthorpe, Emma Dowson, Zoe James, Christina Clark, Zara Mazhar, Chloe Mercer, Alice Mitchell, Wednesday Pywowariw, Matthew Robson and Sam Young

A number of Year 12 students completed their A-level results one year early, including Lucy Doddrell, Jade Doughty, Harriet Housam and Paige Royce.
