‘Resilience’ has paid off for students in Spilsby receiving GCSE results in a year that started in ‘uncertainly’.

King Edward VI Academy students are celebrating the first set of GCSE exam results since the last formal results in 2019 due to the pandemic.

Recognising the support that this year 11 students would need due to the disruption caused by the pandemic, the school supplemented high quality teaching with holiday revision classes and personalised tutoring.

As a result, students secured some amazing results, including:

Charlie-Jean Layzell who achieved two top GCSE grade 9s in English and Art. Tamzin Alcock who achieved six GCSE grade 8s and three GCSE grade 7s Amy Edge who achieved GCSE grade 8 in Physics, Chemistry and Biology Callum Holloway who achieved GCSE grade 8 in History and four GCSE grade 7s

Acting Head of School, Mark Wilkinson of King Edward VI Academy said: “For our students, the school year started with such uncertainty, having seen two years of public examinations being cancelled due to the pandemic.

"This cohort has demonstrated such resilience and we are so proud of the results they have achieved. It is right to congratulate our young people and also thank families, staff, our governors and DRET for the support which has made these results possible.”

Stuart Burns, Chief Executive Officer at the David Ross Education Trust, said: “Congratulations to all our students and staff. Your hard work has really paid off.

“These results have been achieved despite all the significant challenges caused by the pandemic, which makes them all the more remarkable.

“Charlie-Jean, Tamzin, Amy and Callum have performed particularly well and I wish all our students the very best for the future.”

Schools Minister Will Quince said: “I know students across Lincolnshire – much like the rest of the country - have experienced disruption over the past two years, and they should all be immensely proud of what they have achieved.
