ACADEMIC achievement was celebrated at a record breaking Caistor Grammar School’s Awards Evening last Thursday, September 20.
More than 400 people attended the ceremony, held at St Peter and St Paul Church, Caistor, and in excess of 100 cups were presented, with more students attending than ever before.
The guest speaker was Professor Mary Stuart, vice-chancellor of the University of Lincoln, an expert on social policy, and a member of the Arts Council.
She gave an inspirational address about how we can all make the most of our talents.
The evening marked the last occasion at which retiring chairman of governors Lindsay Fell presided.
She praised the school’s staff and students for their hard work and high achievements, both in the classroom and in other areas of school life.
Headmaster Roger Hale expressed his gratitude to Mrs Fell for her unstinting service to the school over 14 years.
He also celebrated a highly-successful year for the school in which it is, once again, the leading school in Lincolnshire at both A level and GCSE.
He was particularly proud that five Caistor Grammar School students had been chosen to carry the Olympic torch. “We are hugely proud of all our students’ achievements during last year and confident that we will continue to excel in the year to come,” he said.
