Boston High School have smashed previous records with their outstanding A-level results this summer.

Head teacher Andrew Fulbrook said: “I am delighted with our A-level results. Our students have worked incredibly hard to achieve this high standard. They have been very well supported by our dedicated staff and sixth form team.

“We have broken records as a quarter of all A-level grades achieved are A*-A grades, with over half of the grades being A*-B. We are also immensely proud of our 100 per cent pass rate for A-level for the fifth consecutive year, with students achieving 98 per cent A*-D grades. We have been extremely successful in physics this year, achieving 100 per cent A*-B grades. Our product design, art, and media students gained 100 per cent A*-C grades and our maths department obtained an incredible 92 per cent A*-C grades.

“We also are very proud of four particular pupils who have successfully secured a place at Cambridge University.

“This is a fantastic achievement for all four pupils who will go on to study at one of the best Universities in the world.

Those students are:

* Sally Atkinson achieved three A* in English literature, history and maths.

* Iestyn Halford obtained three A* in maths, further maths and physics.
