Humberston Academy is the top performing school in NE Lincolnshire

Humberston Academy has been named the top performing secondary school in North East Lincolnshire, after the publication of the Department for Education’s School Performance Tables last week. 


After celebrating another set of impressive GCSE results in Summer 2016, the academy has now topped the region’s performance rankings across three out of the four key government measures.


Matt Watling, Principal, said: “Last year Humberston Academy was named in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress and attainment, and I am delighted that we are continuing to exceed and excel.”


The tables, which compare the 2016 GCSE results of secondary schools and academies across England saw the academy being ranked at the top of the tables for Progress 8, Attainment 8 and the percentage of students that achieve the English Baccalaureate.


Mr Watling continued: “These results shows that not only are our students making above average progress during their time at Humberston Academy, they are also achieving top grades in the traditionally harder subjects.


“We pride ourselves on excellence for all and I am incredibly proud of our role in developing well-rounded young people that the whole community can be proud of.  These results are a credit to the efforts of our students and all the staff at Humberston and would not be achieved without the support of parents/carers.”  


Wendy Marshall, Chief Executive of the David Ross Education Trust, added: “Humberston Academy can rightly say it is amongst the best schools in the area. It provides young people with fantastic opportunities to succeed, and I have every confidence that the academy will continue to go from strength to strength.”
