Disruption to their education caused by coronavirus failed to stop Healing School pupils recording outstanding GCSE results.
Teacher-assessed grades saw 62% record a strong basic pass in Maths and English while 85% achieved a standard basic pass in both.
94.7% of Year 11s recorded a standard level 4 pass in English, with 84.7% achieve the strong grade 5 or above.
In Maths, 86.2% reached level 4 with 64.6% achieving grade 5 or higher.
Strong passes were recorded in two sciences by 64% of pupils.
The school’s Attainment 8 figure, the highest in North East Lincolnshire when performance tables were last produced in 2019, increased further this year to 55.8 while its English Baccalaureate average points score rose to 4.97.
Principal Mrs Dewland congratulated all Year 11s on their achievements.
“I’m incredibly proud of this year group,” said Mrs Dewland.
“They have shown great resilience to overcome the challenges they have faced over the past 18 months.
“I’m confident that their teacher-assessed grades reflect robust portfolios of evidence, which were moderated and scrutinised. Students’ dedication and effort during this challenging time were also exemplary.
“It is important that these pupils are not seen as the ‘Coronavirus generation’. Each are talented individuals who can achieve great things.
“We congratulate them on their achievements and wish them all the very best in their future careers.
“I would like to thank parents and carers for the support given to their child, particularly around remote learning. The partnership between home and school has never been so important.
“I would also like to give a special mention to my staff team. It, too, has faced tremendous challenges but has adapted admirably to ensure each pupil has had the best possible education.”
