Caistor Grammar School student surprised by her 12 A* grades
A straight-A student who was predicted to pass no fewer than a dozen GCSEs at the perfect A* grade didn’t sleep a wink last night.
But 16-year-old Caistor Grammar School star pupil Annabel May opened her results to find she had achieved the maximum.
She had shown academic prowess from her early days at the school, winning the Russell Orr Cup for her contribution to years seven to nine.
Now the talented teenager from Fern Drive in Market Rasen is aiming to match her grades at A-level in two years’ time.

“The school had predicted that I would get 12 A*s but I never in my wildest dreams expected to get them all,” she said.
“I wasn’t sure because there was a lot of coursework and quite a few of the exams didn’t go as well as I’d hoped.
“But it all came together, I’m ecstatic, although I didn’t get any sleep at all last night.”
Annabel – known as Annie to family and friends – will start sixth form next month.
She is staying on to do A-levels in the classics, religious education, French and Latin.
Caistor Grammar doesn’t have an A-level course in Latin, so Annabel is taking an online version.
And she hopes to study French and Latin at university, with a view to a possible career in journalism.
