The record book has been torn up at Caistor Grammar School as Headmaster, Roger Hale, described the 2013 A level results as “The best ever in the School’s distinguished history”.

The highlights include the average point score per candidate of 36.8 and an average point score per entry of 8.1.

Every student gained at last four passes and the pass rate was 100 per cent, with 80 per cent of grades at A*- B excluding General Studies.

All of these are new School records.

More than 70 percent of students got at least one A grade, with 40 percent gaining three As or better and 15 students achieving all As or A*s.

“The A* grade is much in evidence in this year’s results, with 14.6 percent of the grades (excluding General Studies) being at A*; 44 percent of grades were A* or A,” said Mr Hale.

Two students gained 4 A*s, Jack Robinson, with an A, and Joseph Ross.

Three more gained 3 A*s, Henry McTernan and Daniel Watson (both with an A), and Mary Jose with a B. Other students who got all A*s or A grades are Kal Alcock-Murtagh, Latta Chauhan, Natasha Crosby, Benedict Harris, Elizabeth May, Hugh Phipps, Ben Smith, Thomas Watson, Leah Altoft and Digby Sowerby.

“With these results, Caistor Grammar School will retain its position as one of the leading schools nationally, as well as being well placed to top Lincolnshire’s league tables,” added Mr Hale.

“We expect to be recorded as achieving 1116.7 per candidate in the tables, which is also a new School record.”
