PUPILS at Bourne Grammar School in September excelled in their GCSE exams.

More than 82 per cent of all GCSE grades were grade B or better at the school and 46 per cent of the pupils’ grades were A* or A grades, with 35 per cent achieving at least five A* or A grades including  math and English. Three pupils achieved 12 A* or A grades, eight achieved 11 A* or A grades and 19 achieved at least ten A* or A grades. 

Forty-three pupils achieved at least seven A* or A grades – one third of the GCSE pupils achieved at least seven of the highest grades.

This year the national GCSE figures have, for the first time, declined and there is wide concern about the examination boards’ marking of English papers.

But at Bourne Grammar, in both English Language and English Literature, almost 80 per cent of the pupils achieved grades were A*, A or B grades.

Headteacher Jonathan Maddox: “Our students’ grades in the science subjects were exceptional. In chemistry, just under half of grades were the 
very top A* grade and every student achieved at least a grade B. In physics and biology our pupils did nearly as well. Every one of our 148 pupils passed mathematics, 93 per cent achieved at least a grade B and 65 per cent an A* or A.”

The school is bucking national trends by posting strong results in modern foreign languages.

At Bourne Grammar every pupils takes at least one language at GCSE and French, German and Spanish are all popular.

The French results were especially good this year with more than three-quarters of the grades being B or better and half of the grades were the top A* or A 
grades.

Mr Maddox said: “I congratulates every one of the 148 students on their results. Each has worked hard and has been taught well.

“The support on offer has been exploited fully by our able, motivated students who understand the importance of getting a string of valuable grades under their belts in today’s competitive environment.”
