‘Determination and effort from everyone’ has seen Boston High School pupils increase their A*-A grade performance at GCSE with more than a quarter of students achieving those results.

Head teacher Andrew Fulbrook praised the ‘outstanding results’ with more than 97 per cent gaining five or more A*-C grades and 95 per cent doing the same but including English and Maths.

All pupils in the computing and the higher level project qualifications gained A*-A grades and yhe school say almost a third of all grades in all subjects were at A*-A.

Those A*-A grades were also gained by more than 40 per cent of pupils in business studies, chemistry, health and social care, Spanish and iGCSE English.

Mr Fulbrook said: “We are delighted that the determination and efforts from everyone involved with our school has resulted in these superb GCSE results.

“We are very, very proud of the achievements of all our students and, most importantly, we should like to congratulate our Year 11 students on their hard work, dedication and success.

“This is a superb set of results. Year on year, all we ask is that students do their best and this group certainly did that, they were a joy to work with and they deserve their success, well done Y11.

“These results will establish the building blocks of their future success and we now look forward to our students, and those from other local schools, continuing their fantastic achievements into our Sixth Form – I should like to congratulate all students in the Boston area on their results.

“We are particularly delighted with the performance at the top A*-A grade range; it is an outstanding achievement to secure a record 32 per cent of all grades at A*-A at Boston High School.

“A number of factors have contributed to these results; clearly, the hard work of the pupils themselves and also, the support of their parents and, of course, the skill and dedication of our teachers and staff. We have a brilliant staff at our school and I congratulate them on their efforts in support of our students.

“We are determined that our students receive the best possible standards in educational provision, care, guidance and support. These results are only part of our success story and we now look forward to working with students as they build on their CGSE success and commence their Sixth Form studies. “We wish them all the very best for a future of lifelong learning.”
