Top performing Healing School (A Science Academy) has received national awards in recognition of its students' excellent attainment and progress.
The awards were handed over to Principal Mark Knapton and chair of governors Graham Walker in a special presentation by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network.
Mr Knapton was delighted with both awards.
"It is further confirmation the school is one of the best in the country for the value it adds at GCSE," he said.
The Low Road school topped North East Lincolnshire's performance league table last summer, with 80 percent gaining five GCSEs, including maths and English, the fifth successive year this benchmark has been achieved.
SSAT undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified Healing School's success.
It qualified for two SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 10 per cent of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between key stage 2 results at primary school and GCSE results at age 16, and in the top 10 per cent nationally for high attainment.
These awards are significant, said Mr Knapton.
"We're proud of the progress and achievements of all our pupils.
"Some come from challenging backgrounds and the fact we also received a regional award for the progress of our Pupil Premium pupils shows we value the progress of every pupil," said Mr Knapton.
Mr Walker said the awards were testament to the hard work and dedication of the teaching and non-teaching staff at Healing.
"The board of governors is proud of the school's achievements," Mr Walker said.
"This is a relatively small village school in North East Lincolnshire that consistently punches above its weight nationally.
"We're delighted SSAT has recognised these considerable achievements."
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: "Healing School should be congratulated for its exceptional achievement.
"It has proved itself to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is clearly much good practice at this school.
"These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person.
"I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network."
