Above national average: Lincolnshire excels in A-Level results

This story is over

Lincolnshire County Council has said that the percentage of students passing A Levels in the county is above the national average.

Provisional results from 30 out of 40 sixth forms in the county have shown that 99.1% of pupils passed their A Level exams, 1.1% higher than the average across England.

Nine Lincolnshire schools (30%) achieved a percentage of A* grades above the national average.

Twelve schools in the county (40%) achieved more A*-A passes at A Level than nationally.

Fifteen out of the 30 schools had a percentage of pupils achieving 3+ A Level passes at A*-E of 90% or more, with three of schools hitting 100% for three or more passes.

Ten schools which achieved 100% pass grades:

  • Cordeaux Academy in Louth
  • Kesteven and Grantham Girls School
  • Kesteven and Sleaford High School
  • Spalding High School
  • Queen Elizabeth’s High School in Gainsborough
  • Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar in Alford
  • King Edward VI Grammar School in Louth
  • Sir John Gleed School in Spalding
  • Priory Witham Academy in Lincoln
  • Boston High School

Patricia Bradwell, Executive Councillor for Children’s Services, said: “Success at A Level does not happen by magic.

“It is only through the continuing hard work of students and teachers, supported by parents and carers, that these fantastic results have been achieved.”

Debbie Barnes, Director of Children’s Services, said: “Lots of changes have taken place as far as A Level examinations are concerned and there are more changes to come.

“Yet Lincolnshire schools and Lincolnshire students have still shown that they have what it takes to compete. I would like to give my sincere congratulations and wish all our students the very best for the future.”
