The Grammar School's new Headmaster, Nick Hammond is delighted with the School's excellent performance.

"Wisbech Grammar School has a long history of educating children to achieve more than they ever thought possible," he said.

"In these days when it is fashionable to talk down A levels, the results recorded by our students represent a significant intellectual achievement; they deserve to be congratulated. Success would not be possible without the dedication of the teaching staff who have nurtured the talent of our Sixth Formers.

"We look forward to hearing of our students' future successes as they move on to university and the wider world."
