Key stage three and four league tables have been released by the Department of Education showing the performance of Lincolnshire schools in GCSE and A-level examinations.

Caistor Grammar School stands out as the best performer in Lincolnshire ranking highest in the county for both GCSE and A-level results, also with 100 per cent of pupils achieving five or more A*-C passes including maths and English.

Headmaster, Roger Hale said: “We are absolutely delighted by this further confirmation of our excellence as an institution.

"Students, teachers and parents all combine to get the best results possible. Well done to everyone involved.”

Boston High School also reached the 100 per cent mark in pupils obtaining five or more A*-C passes at GCSE.

The Queen Elizabeth’s High School, Gainsborough was the second highest performer in average A-level points scored, followed by Kesteven and Sleaford High School.

Mablethorpe's Tennyson High School had the worst GCSE results in the county with 19% of pupils achieving over five A*-C passes.

The Government floor target for GCSE results in schools is 40 per cent and 10 schools in Lincolnshire fell below this mark.

Lincolnshire had the second highest percentage of schools falling below the target in the East Midlands, behind Nottingham which is listed separately from Nottinghamshire.

There was a mixed uptake of pupils opting for the English Baccalaureate which was introduced for the first time.

In Lincolnshire 29 per cent of Key Stage four pupils entered the English Baccalaureate and out of these, 20 per cent achieved the award.

    Perhaps if the pupils spent less time in Wetherspoons and more at their private study results would improve. What hope is there for any school when as soon as they are not in lessons the pupils make straight for the nearest pub?

    St George's Academy Sleaford 382 57% 34 543.1 8% 628.7 190.3 34 what a disgraceful set of results from St George's Academy, and I have two children at the school - 1 taking GCE and 1 in sixth form, still I'm sure that by the next set of school reports the figures will have been 'reinterpreted to show an excellent performance!' It's a shame that with all the millions spent on infrastructure - the vast majority of teachers seem to be well below average. Someone said to me 'A good teacher could teach well in a shed' - There are No excuses now, its seems the poor standards evidence of poor teaching. one final point to note - my daughters 'top set' science teacher thought that a 'gas giant' planet was just like the Earth in structure!!!!!!! Whatchance have we got...............
