The 2015 GCSE results at Caistor Grammar School are “thrilling and amazing with a huge number of School records being broken” said a delighted Headmaster, Roger Hale.

The 94 students established new School records for their average points score per candidate (79.1) and for the English Baccalaureate, with 89.4 per cent of students achieving it.

A full 100 per cent of students gained nine A*-C passes (a new record) and 97 per cent of students gained 10 A*-C passes, which equals the school’s previous record; 61 per cent of students gained 12 A*- C grades.

Over half of students gained 9 A*- As, while 75 per cent gained 5 A*- As.

Yet another school record was set as students averaged 11.5 passes each.

Amongst the highest performing students at the school are: Caroline Bassett, who gained 11A*s and 1A; Jan Chauhan and James Smith, who both gained 10A*s and 2 As; Ankit Gupta, Megan Harding, Ellie Hill and Michael Trueman, who gained 9A*s and 3 As; Simone Fraser who achieved 9A*s, 2As and 1 B and Nina Leggett who gained 9A*s, 1A and 2Bs.

In all, 26.5 per cent of grades were A*, and 66% were A* - A.

All but one of the students gained the Government’s 5 A* - C passes, including English and Maths, and all students gained two passes in science subjects, 96 percent gained three science passes.

There was a 100 per cent pass rate in English Language and Literature, and 99 per cent in Mathematics.

“We expect that these results will put CGS among the leading schools in the country once again,” added Mr Hale.
