New GCSE league tables reveal performance of Boston schools


League tables showing the performance of pupils studying GCSEs and equivalent qualifications have been published.

The figures show the proportion on pupils achieving at least five A*-C grades at GCSE or equivalent, including English and maths, varies from 99 per cent to 29 per cent in Boston-area schools.

The data also shows that all but two of the area’s schools recorded a decline in the measure from the previous year.

The proportions for Boston schools are given below, with the previous year’s figure in brackets:

Boston Grammar School - 88 per cent (96 per cent)

Boston High School - 99 per cent (100 per cent)

The Giles Academy - 43 per cent (59 per cent)

Haven High Academy - 31 per cent (39 per cent)

Middlecott School - 38 per cent (38 per cent)

The Thomas Cowley High School - 57 per cent (52 per cent)

William Lovell CofE School - 29 per cent (67 per cent)

The published data goes far beyond this traditional measure, however.
