Skegness Academy continues to push towards academic excellence and for the second year running 100 per cent of students gained five A*-C in 2012 while both mathematics and English surpassed the national average for A*-C results.
Mr Corns added: "The sixth form has gained a 100 per cent pass rate at A-Level/Level Three equivalent, all of which bears testimony to the immense skill and hard work of Academy staff who have invariably enabled students to empower themselves through education.
"The sustainability of such success is something which the recent Ofsted inspection team were more than happy to endorse."
The Skegness Academy received judgements of good for behaviour, attainment, teaching and sixth-form, while leadership and management was outstanding.
Mr Corns added: "Of particular note, and complementing the academic curriculum to great effect, is the wonderful variety of sporting initiatives in evidence.
"Attaining 'runners-up' in the Aviva National State Schools Sports Awards demonstrates the Academy's unswerving commitment to physical education across all phases; this in turn is reflected through an on-going consistency of success and achievement in both girls' and boys' football and indeed via inter-academy athletics.
"Skegness Academy is working hard to further develop its capacity for improvement where such dedication will surely glean a much deserved 'Outstanding' judgement courtesy of Ofsted in five years' time."
