Much De Aston delight
Academic achievements and a commitment to learning outside the classroom have contributed to the ongoing success of a town's secondary school.
This summer, pupils at De Aston School in Market Rasen were praised for their individual performances at both GCSE and A Level.
Year 11 students who collected the top grades included Marco Chow with 10 A*/A grades, along with Thomas Brocklebank and Courtney Baxter, who all achieved eight subjects at this level.
These are just some of the high achievers, however. Top spot went to Abigail Woolley with an amazing A* or A in all of her 11 GCSEs.

Those Year 13 students who achieved the highest grades possible included Alice Bull with two A*and an A grade, while Sally Brunton and Jan Van Der Lubbe also reached the A* threshold.
Headteacher, Ellenor Beighton put the success of individuals down to "the hard work of students and the dedication of the staff". She added: "All the students worked hard and should be proud of their achievements."
De Aston will celebrate the students' achievements with a special awards ceremony later this month.
Meanwhile, earlier this summer a group of students travelled out to Rwanda and Uganda to complete their World Challenge expedition. They spent eight days on a community project, rebuilding a school in Rwamanga alongside the organisation AVEGA AGAHOZO which was founded by 50 widows (all genocide survivors). They also completed be a safari and a trek to Ruccochi Falls in Uganda.
The new term is also set to be full of excitement, starting off with the new Year 7s camping out on the school field.
