The school has also been honoured to receive an exceptional award by SSAT for above average student progress figures.
Principal Mrs Dewland was delighted.
“Well done to all – Team Healing at its best,” she said.
“This is a fantastic achievement.
“It is deserved recognition for teaching and non-teaching staff following consistently exceptional results last summer.
“Our thanks to our parents, as ever, for their support and to our hard-working pupils.”
Earlier this year, Government league tables confirmed the school as the top performing secondary for attainment in North East Lincolnshire.
A total of 57% of pupils achieved a strong GCSE grade 5 pass in English and maths last summer, compared to a local authority average of 34% and an England average of 43%.
The school’s overall Attainment 8 score – based on how well pupils performed in up to eight qualifications – was 53.2, compared to a local authority average of 41.4 and a national average of 46.7.
The school’s Progress 8 figure, the improvement between Key Stages 2 and 4 over the same eight subjects, increased to 0.43, the fourth successive year it has been above the national average and in the top 20% of schools nationally.
