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.
