Ruby Fox (16) added: “I’m very happy today and think I’ve done really well. I am going on to KEVIGS to do A-levels in Maths, PE and Biology. Louth Academy has been really good for me. I’ve been here since Year 7 and I probably wouldn’t have got these results without them because they’ve all been fantastic.”
