Students and staff at Lincoln's Sir Robert Pattinson Academy are celebrating an increase in the number of pupils who passed both English and maths GCSE at grade C or above.
Triplets Ryan, James and Lauren Kelly, 16, from North Hykeham, are looking forward to taking the next steps towards their chosen careers after receiving their GCSE results today.
Ryan's Bs in further maths, additional science, geography and German and Cs in English, music and RE and a BC in engineering mean he can begin his electronic installations course at Lincoln College.
He said: "I did better than expected and I'd like to start an apprenticeship with the electricity board after college."
Brother James achieved Cs in science, additional science, music and use of maths, Ds in English language, additional science (route 1), Es in engineering, English literature and geography, an EE in engineering and an F in RS.
He said: "I'm pleased I've got the grades to get me into Lincoln College to study car body repairs.
"My ambition is to have my own car body repair shop in 10 years' time."
Lauren achieved As in Drama, geography and algebra and Bs in English language, data handling, English literature, art and use of maths and Cs in French, additional science, maths and RE.
She said: "I'm really pleased. I'll be doing A Levels in art, English language and literature at the Joint Sixth Form and my dream is to become a drama teacher."
Sixty-four per cent of students gained five passes at A* to C including maths and English.
Achievement in English increased from 64 per cent to 76 per cent at grade C and above and maths performance remained high with 80 per cent getting a C or more.
Eight students gained eight or more A* or A grades in their exams.
Charlotte Moss achieved eight A and a A* is going on onto to study maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.
Katie Alexander received six A grades and two A*s and will be going into the school’s sixth form next year to study languages and psychology.
Sir Robert Pattinson Academy headteacher Helen Renard said she is delighted with the results, particularly in maths and English.
She said: "I'd like to congratulate the students for achieving these fantastic results and to thank the staff and parents for supporting them.
"We are really proud of all the pupils, who have worked very hard, and delighted it has resulted in some excellent results for our pupils."
