Marling Celebrates Exceptional A Level Results

Marling School is celebrating an exceptional set of A Level results, with a high percentage of A and A* results. 18% of the grades were at grade A*, with 44% at grades A*-A. 74% were at grades A*-B, with the pass rate at 99%.

Within such a set of results there were many individual successes. 13 students gained all of their grades at the top A* grade, while 44 students achieved 3 or more A* or A grades and 97 students achieved 3 or more A*-B grades.

Glen Balmer, Headteacher, said “I am so proud of our Class of 2022. The phenomenal results they have achieved are reward for the remarkable resilience they have shown through the challenges of the last two years. They are an inspiring group of young people who brought so much to our school. They richly deserve their success, and they will take their next steps with confidence and ready to make a difference to the communities around them. These fabulous results also bear testament to the skill and dedication of our staff. I am in awe of how they responded to the constant flux of the last two years. Throughout they inspired, supported and gave huge confidence to our students.”

Mr Steve Farr, Head of Sixth Form, said “I would like to offer my congratulations to all Marling students. Each student is an individual; their journey through Marling 6th form and the challenges of the last 2 years represents far more than a grade. Their successes, both individually and as a cohort, means that students are progressing on to their chosen destinations, whether that be to university, a higher apprenticeship, foundation course or experiencing the wider world through travel or employment. Many have matched or exceeded their offers for their chosen courses, including highly selective universities requiring A* grades such as Cambridge, Imperial College, Durham and Bath universities. Huge congratulations to all”.
