I was very proud to see the boys open their A level results today and to be able to celebrate with them. A level study is incredibly hard work and this was the first cohort to go through the two years without January modules to benchmark their progress. However as always, Marling boys rose to the challenge and took the changes in their stride. Two years of hard work has paid off and it was great to see them celebrating their success. 

The results were record breaking and our best ever. 42% of exams at the highest A*-A grades and 74% of exams at A*-B grades (the pass rate was 99.4%). A large number of boys exceeded their predicted grades, with 24 students achieving three A grade passes or better and 43 students achieving at least 2 A or A* grades.  Most boys have gone on to secure places at their first choice universities including seven that are off to Oxbridge universities or starting medicine courses and two who will be studying on the highly competitive physics course at Manchester University.

This is a super set of results. We are all thrilled for the boys who have worked so hard and deserve their success; they now leave us very well placed to continue their studies or start their careers. My thanks go to our staff for supporting the boys so well and enabling them to achieve so highly.

Later in the morning we also celebrated with our Year 12 boys receiving their AS results. They achieved some of the schools highest AS results, laying a solid foundation for their own A level success, with 50% of their AS exams at A-B grades and 70% at A*-C.  We look forward to celebrating their A level success this time next year.
