Building on first-class formula
Top-class results, small class sizes and a plethora of opportunites all contribute to the winning formula that is offered by Wisbech Grammar School.
Founded during the turbulent reign of Richard II in 1379, the school was established by a society of local merchants, the Guild of the Holy Trinity, to provide education for poor boys of the town.
Now fully co-educational, the school – which stands in one of England’s most handsome Georgian streets – draws its pupils aged four to 18 from Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Lincolnshire.
At A Level this summer upper sixth formers achieved a 100 per cent pass rate, with more than two thirds of the passes being at the top three grades, A*, A and B, and with ten pupils gaining A* or A in at least three subjects.
Half of the GCSE passes were at A* and A grades, with particularly strong performances in maths and science, and 17 pupils achieved nine or more A* and A grades.
