Lincoln Minster School pupils are celebrating exam success today with excellent GCSE examination results. This follows on from the school's very successful A-level results from last week and continues its strong academic tradition.
The majority of the pupils receiving their results today will now progress into the School's Sixth Form. 37% of pupils achieved grades 9 - 7 while, 94% achieved 9 - 4 (4 being the equivalent of a C in the old system).
Some individual successes include:
Charlie who attained seven 9 grades and an A* in Maths and Isobel who achieved eight grade 8 and 9s as well as an A* in Maths.
Yushi achieved nine 9 grades and three 7s, he said:
“I’m going to study Further Maths, and all three sciences as A Levels at St Pauls in London. I have enjoyed my time at Lincoln Minster, the school is very friendly, and I feel like I can ask everyone questions. I want to study Natural Sciences at university. I would like to be a Bio Chemist”
Jack achieved nine grade 8 and 9s, he said:
“I am really happy with my grades; I used to dislike English because there were no logical answers but with Mrs Grogan taught me how to interpret language and I achieved two Grade 8s! I am going to stay for Sixth Form and study Biology, Maths and Geography.”
Headmaster, Mark Wallace commented:
“I am thrilled for our pupils who have achieved some remarkable grades. This is a result of their hard work, resilience and commitment to their studies. Our pupils have been well supported by an extremely dedicated staff, who have given additional time and support whenever it is needed, be it during lunch times or after school.
“I am certain our pupils will continue to excel as they move into Sixth Form and take full advantage of the outstanding opportunities available to them at the school both inside and outside the classroom.”
