Congratulations GCSE students!

Today St Marylebone students are collecting a set of really encouraging GCSE results. They’ve worked very hard for these grades, not least as most of these are new, challenging GCSEs being taken for the first time.
The students have achieved really strongly across a range of GCSEs, with great outcomes in across the curriculum: in the arts as much as the sciences. This will open doors to many post-16 pathways for them. 
86% of students passed both English and Maths.  
Across all the grades, 11% are grade 9 (the highest mark possible).
26% of grades are the equivalent of A* or higher (grades 8-9).
56% of all English grades are 7 or higher. 
Across all grades, 45% are grade 7 or above (or grade A or above). 
Over a third of students achieved a grade 9 in at least one subject. 
59% of students achieved a grade 8 or 9 in at least 1 subject (an A* or above).
75% of pupils achieved a grade 7, 8 or 9 in at least 1 subject (an A or above).
19 pupils achieved at least 3 grade 9 or more with one top performer who achieved eight grade 9s and one A*. 
We are also celebrating today the outstanding outcomes of the Year 10 GCSE Religious Studies which show the pride they take in their learning.  90% of students achieved a grade 4+ (equivalent of grade C) and 38% of the RS grades are grade 8 or 9 (the equivalent of A*). Well done Year 10!
The School is really proud of Year 10 and 11 for the energy and effort they put into their achievements and we are as ever grateful to the teachers whose dedication and commitment to young people’s learning is palpable.  Our thanks also to the parents and carers for their endurance and support, especially during the challenges of GCSEs. 
Congratulations students!
