Exam success at Marling School

Marling School celebrates record breaking A level results

I was very proud to see the boys open their A level results today and delighted to be able to celebrate with them. A level study is incredibly hard work and this was the first cohort to go through a fully reformed set of A levels which brings new challenges. As always, Marling students rose to the challenge and did brilliantly well. I am delighted for them and the staff who have worked so hard to support them, both academically and pastorally.

The results were record-breaking and our best ever. A whopping 43% of exams were at the highest A*-A grades including 16% at A* which is well above national figures. The percentage of grades at A*-B was 69% and the pass rate was 99%.

A large number of students exceeded their predicted grades including 6 students who achieved A* in every subject, 31 students achieved 3 A grade passes or better and nearly a third of students achieving at least 1 A grade. Most students have gone on to secure places at their first choice universities including many of the highly selective universities.

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.
