Mr Mark Fowle, Interim Chief Executive Officer of The West Grantham Church of England Secondary Academy, said

“I am really pleased that these results reflect the hard work, resilience and commitment of the students and staff at The West Grantham Church of England Secondary Academy and the positive support of parents. We are determined to continue to improve our results year on year and we are working very hard to achieve this.

This was a very committed and giving cohort of young people who worked very hard. Many attended revision sessions after school. A number of them also made significant contributions to our community and they fully deserve their success. It is good to know that their hard work has been rewarded despite the uncertainty over exam results nationally. We must not forget that these results are the culmination of 11 years of education and hard work and that many of these students were unable to have the opportunity to prove themselves in the exam hall, something which many of this cohort would have relished. I would like to congratulate all our students on their achievements and I wish them every success in the future.”
