Boston High School has said its pupils have ‘again significantly outperformed their national targets’ in the highest grades at A Level.

Forty per cent of grades were A*-B in the first year of many new A Level courses, with more of a focus on final examination performance and the results not including AS marks.

In particular, head teacher Andrew Fulbrook said the school was ‘proud to have maintained a fantastically high overall pass rate with 98 per cent of all grades being A Level passes’.

In Art, Further Maths and Product Design, Boston High School pupils achieved 100 per cent A*-B grades with Art having an average grade of A+.

Other high performing subjects were Media Studies, Drama, English Literature, Business Studies and History all achieving more than 75 per cent of grades A* to C.

Mr Fulbrook said “I am delighted with our A-Level results.

Individual students who performed particularly well were Aisha Ahmad (one A* and three A grades), Marionne Encarnacion (one A* and two A grades), Laura Hardy (three A grades).

Kyle Low, Emily Murfin, Grace Needham, and Jodie Turl also all ‘leave with a crop of A* and A grades’, said Mr Fulbrook.

At AS Level nearly half of all grades achieved were grade C and above. Megan Clawson, Cai Cherry and Emily Underwood all achieved at least three A grades.
