It has been a morning of excitement, relief, joy and tears for students at Sleaford area schools as they receive their A-level results to find out whether they have passed to go to university or their chosen career.
Across the country girls appear to have done better than boys, something reflected in Lincolnshire. Also there appears to have been a slight deflation in the level of teh results for the second year running, after the government came under pressure to tighten up on the ever increasing trend of better exam results year on year.
Nick Law, headteacher at Carre’s Grammar School in Sleaford commented: “We are very proud of the achievements of our A-level candidates this year. It is particularly pleasing to see that so many have achieved personal success and improved over time as a result of their hard work and determination to achieve their best.
“The results represent a fantastic achievement for the students, who come from a whole range of schools to study in the Sleaford Joint Sixth Form, and this demonstrates the strength of the collaboration between the staff of the schools in the town. Staff and students have worked exceedingly hard together in challenging subjects and they achieve highly in these areas.
“The majority of the students have achieved results that enable them to take up their offers at university, many of them at the country’s top institutions, including Oxford and Cambridge. In addition to their academic results, this year group has made a significant contribution to the wider life of the school and developed skills which they will find invaluable in their roles as future leaders in their chosen careers.
“I have no doubt that these results will open doors for our students. This demonstrates that, once again, students at Carre’s are being prepared for the future in a well-rounded way and this is cause for celebration for all of our students and staff.”
