The St Marylebone CE School Examination results 

The St Marylebone CE School results can be reviewed on the DfE website by clicking here.

At The St Marylebone CE School we are immensely proud of the achievements of all of our students.

We have a comprehensive intake of pupils who go on to achieve results that place the school in the top 5% of schools in England for GCSE. A school’s performance can be viewed through a number of measures, here are some of them.

GCSE Summary

The Attainment 8 (A8) figure counts the GCSE grades pupils take in a broad range of 8 subjects including English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Languages. The A8 is the total grade points students achieve in 8 qualifying subjects.

What do these numbers mean?
These numbers show the average grade nationally is a grade 4, for Westminster schools the average grade is 5 and for St Marylebone it is a 6.  This year (2020), results have not been published nationally as students were awarded Centre Assessed Grades.

The Progress 8 (P8) figure is a measure which shows the progress made by students at the School in a given year from their Year 6 scores to their GCSE scores.  This is also exceptional at St Marylebone. 

Our Progress 8 scores put us in the top 5% of schools nationally.  The Progress 8 table below shows that for every GCSE our students take they achieve more than half a grade above other students with the same Key Stage 2 scores in England.

The 2020 Progress 8 figures have not been published nationally and so it is not possible to give a definitive number but using school data bench-marking tools which draw national comparisons, we are confident that our results continue to be in the top 5% nationally.

Progress for pupils who classify as “disadvantaged” is also well above national progress levels.

Ebacc (English Baccalaureate)                   

The EBacc (English Baccalaureate) is another performance measure for schools.  A pupil is considered to have entered for the English Baccalaureate if they entered for qualifications in English, maths, sciences, a language and either history or geography. The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications.

Students at St Marylebone have access to a wide broad and enriching curriculum. At GCSE students are given four free choices of GCSE subjects. All students have access to humanities and modern foreign languages. Nationally to be counted in the Ebacc performance measure, students must take both one humanity and one language.                                                                                                                                                                                                                           At St Marylebone, we do not compel all students to take a humanity and a language at GCSE.  The free choice of four subjects at St Marylebone means that some students choose to take both History and Geography instead of a language, or they may decide to take two languages and forgo History or Geography, or not do a humanity or language at all.  This then means that they don’t qualify for the Ebacc.  This means that the St Marylebone Ebacc figures match national average figures and that our students succeed in high quality courses that they really want to do.

GCSE Results 2020

The results for 2020 were awarded by the Centre Assessed Grade Process. This means that comparisons between schools are difficult to achieve because of the lack of national standardisation.

Here is a summary of the grades awarded at GCSE 2020.
