Well done GCSE students!

We celebrate today the achievements of students receiving their GCSE results today! St Marylebone is so proud of you for all your hard work and determination.

The results demonstrate students’ positive work ethic and commitment to their studies across all the subjects.

Students at St Marylebone have made significantly more progress on average than they would have done elsewhere, across the subjects. In general, our students have achieved a grade higher than the nationally-expected result. 

86% of students achieved a pass or higher in GCSE English and Maths.
85% of students achieved a pass or higher in GCSE Combined Science.
Students’ attainment and progress in languages, humanities, arts and STEM subjects are equally positive.

205 grade 9s have been achieved, meaning 15% of all grades are the highest possible grade.
30% of the grades achieved are grade 8 or 9 (A* / A**).
47% of the grades achieved are grade 7 or above (A or above).
50% of students achieved at least one grade 9.

One student achieved eleven grade 9s; four students achieved ten grade 9s; one student achieved 9 grade 9s; one student achieved 8 grade 9s.

Many students made exceptional progress from their starting points, enabling them to enroll for 6th Forms and colleges and go onto really exciting, worthwhile next steps in education. Well done all of you!

Congratulations also to the Year 10 students who got their RS GCSE results today; these are also a real achievement. Onwards and upwards!

Our thanks to parents and carers for their support and tenacity during the students’ demanding KS4; we know that GCSEs and their associated pressures are not easy – and yet we have loved having your children at St Marylebone.

The results also speak for the great commitment of our teachers who do all they can to promote the students’ enjoyment and achievement in their learning.

Congratulations to Year 11 2019 and all the very best to you for your next steps in education, learning and life!

Congratulations to our A-Level students!

St Marylebone’s Year 13 have lots to celebrate today, having received a great set of A-Level results.  These are the product of hard work and commitment, marking the start of exciting new chapters in their lives. 

Desirable places at universities and colleges all over the country, and in apprenticeships and employment have been secured, across all disciplines and sectors, including all the arts, humanities, languages, business, social sciences, classical civilisation, engineering, sciences, maths, ICT and computing, medicine, English literature, law, economics, politics, health care …  and many combinations of these.  

Six students are going to Oxford or Cambridge and three students are going to study medicine – with some others looking at similar pathways after a gap year.  

Overall, the A-Level grades this year are really pleasing: 

25% of students achieved three A grades or better.

73% of students achieved three or more A* – C grades.

90% are A*- C.

38% are A* – A.

These grades are a credit to our young people, despite all the unpredictability of the examination system, societal pressures and myriad distractions. Well done to you all!  We have loved having you here and wish you all the best for your futures.

A big thank you to all the parents and carers whose support for their daughters and sons, and for the School, during the two extraordinary sixth form years. I hope you feel as proud as we do of the young people leaving St Marylebone.   

And huge thanks also to the teachers whose passion and commitment to the students has enabled such achievements and, moreover, the students’ personal growth and development.
