Results improve again as schools in the Bourne area buck trend

Have your say

STAFF and pupils celebrated another successful year of GCSE results today.

Bourne Academy was delighted after it maintained its “remarkable consistency at GCSE”.

Headteacher Laurence Reilly said 83 per cent of Year 11 pupils had achieved at least five GCSEs at grade C or above, an 11 per cent increase from 2011.

The school was also pleased that 54 per cent of pupils achieved five A* to C grades including English and maths.

Mr Reilly said: “We are obviously delighted by the spectacular grades achieved by some of our most able students, including the Schiavi twins, Issy and Gabby, with nine A*s and 11 A grades between them and by the 13 A grades achieved by one of our most popular Year 11 students, Matthew Bostock.

“Matthew supports the school behind the scenes at all our major events, his commitment to Bourne Academy linked to the fact that his grandfather was a previous headteacher of the school.”

Kirkstone House School in Baston is celebrating its best ever GCSE results with 96 per cent of its pupils gaining five or more A* to C grades at GCSE and 27 per cent of pupils achieving A* and A grades.

The Deepings School was also celebrating after 68 per cent of pupils gained five A* to C grades including English and maths - a slight increase on last year’s record-breaking results. Over 85 per cent of the group achieved five A* to C grades.

Headteacher Chris Beckett said the GCSE results, on the back of last week’s excellent A-level results, showed a high level of academic consistency.

He said: “We are delighted for the vast majority of our students who have achieved their potential through these results. Another set of solid, consistent results will allow most students the opportunity of moving into the next phase of their education or life in the comfort of knowing they have been successful and I would like to take this opportunity of wishing them all the very best for the future.”

Bourne Grammar School is still to release details of its results.
