Both Brigg secondary schools had an exceptional year with their GCSE results.

Head Teacher at The Vale Academy, Gail Young said she was absolutely delighted with the GCSE examination results this year.

Figures were that 69 percent of the year group achieved 5A*-C grades, including English and Mathematics, with 78 percent of students achieving A*-C in Mathematics and 74 percent A*-C in English.

And 24 percent of students achieved A*/A grades in both Mathematics and Science, with 19 percent achieving A*/A in English.

Mrs Young said: “Whilst our performance at A*-C with English and Mathematics remains consistently high, our overall A*/A percentage has increased significantly. We are especially proud of this.”

There were some phenomenal individual performances too.

These included Michael Taylor - 11 A*grades and 2 A grades; Natasha Jeffrey - 8 A*s grades, 4 A grades; Laura Macbeath - 6A* grades, 5 A grades; Sian Williams - 6A* grades, 4 A grades.

At Sir John Nelthorpe School, Head Teacher Linda Hewlett-Parker was also delighted.

“Last year we had our best ever set of results and were over the moon. To top that figure this year is brilliant.

“We are so pleased for our students, who richly deserve their well earned success.

“Congratulations to all Y11 students and staff for yet another fantastic set of results. This figure is again the best SJN has ever had.”

Of the school’s entry 79.5 percent of students achieved 5A*-C grades, including English and Maths.

Last year, the Brigg schools topped the North Lincolnshire league tables for exam results and it looks likely that they will be front runners again in 2013.
