Hard work reflects great results in performance tables
THE latest Government league tables have given some Boston secondary schools cause for celebration.
Boston High School is the fiftieth best school in the country at GCSE, based on newly-released Department for Education figures.
The figures, based on the percentage of A* to C grades gained, including English and maths and GCSE average points scores put Boston High School top of the local league table – just nine places behind Eton, and 34th out of the country's state-funded schools.
Principal Dr Jason Howard said: "These results reflect the hard work of the students themselves and the support their parents give them, they also reflect the care my colleagues take with each individual.

"Our culture – of teachers sharing their best teaching and learning strategies with each other – helps us to ensure that we keep making the best better."
Meanwhile, the William Lovell Academy were celebrating after coming out as one of the best non-selective schools in the Boston and east coast area on the Government's key performance measure of five A* to C including maths and English.
Headteacher Andrew Fulbrook said: "I am delighted with the publication of the performance table information.
"It is an outstanding achievement to be recognised as the highest performing school of our type, on the Government's key indicator, not only in Boston but also in the whole of the east coast area.
"Indeed across the whole of Lincolnshire we are the fifth best non-selective school for five A* to C including English and maths in the county.
"At our Academy, students achieved an amazing 67 per cent pass rate on this measure. This is significantly above the Lincolnshire schools average of 62 per cent and the national average of 59 per cent. It is also especially pleasing to note that we are way above the Government's minimum target for this measure which was set at 40 per cent, a measure that a number of schools failed to achieve.
"Once again, praise and credit should be given to our outstanding team of staff and to the wonderful students who attend our Academy.
"Together with our Academy conversion, our Lead Behaviour Status and now these outstanding results, it is clear to see that students attending our Academy are provided with the best opportunities to succeed at all ability levels and make outstanding progress."
Elsewhere, Boston Grammar School gained 96 per cent for students achieving five or more A* to C grades, The Giles Academy achieved 59 per cent, Haven High gained 39 per cent and Middlecott School, Kirton gained 38 per cent.
