At St Marylebone we are immensely proud of the achievements of all of our students. We have a comprehensive intake of students who go on to achieve results that place the school in the top 5% of schools in England.
The St Marylebone CE School performance tables can be viewed on the DfE website.
In 2020 GCSE grades were awarded by the Centre Assessed Grade process, and in 2021 by the Teacher Assessed Grade process. This means that comparisons between schools are unreliable because of the lack of national standardisation. However, students at St Marylebone achieved grades which placed the School in the top 5% of the country, as has been the case for the last 10 years.
The tables below show the percentage of grades at grade 7 or above (old grade A) and at grade 4 or above (old grade C) by subject in 2021, 2020 and 2019.

GCSE Performance Measures
A school’s GCSE performance can be evaluated by a number of measurements.
Attainment 8 (A8) is based on the GCSE grades students achieve in a broad range of 8 qualifying subjects including English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Languages.
|The St Marylebone CE School||61.3||60.8||62.2||67.0||67.8|
|State schools in England||46.3||46.5||46.7||n/a||n/a|
What do these numbers mean?
These numbers show how the average grade nationally is grade 4, for Westminster schools the average grade is 5 and for St Marylebone, it is grade 6. In 2020 and 2021, results were not published nationally as students were awarded Centre Assessed Grades.
The Progress 8 (P8) figure is a measure that shows the progress made by students in a given year from their Year 6 scores to their GCSE scores. 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 St Marylebone CE School||+0.6||+0.6||+0.84|
|State schools nationally||-0.03||-0.02||-0.03|
The 2020 and 2021 Progress 8 figures have not been published nationally and so it is not possible to give a definitive number but using school data benchmarking tools which draw national comparisons, we are confident that our results continue to be in the top 5% nationally.
Progress for students classified as “disadvantaged” is also well above national progress levels:
|Progress 8 (disadvantaged students)||2017||2018||2019|
|The St Marylebone CE School disadvantaged students||+0.2||+0.47||+0.37|
|National disadvantaged students||-0.14||-0.15||-0.16|
Ebacc (English Baccalaureate)
The EBacc (English Baccalaureate) is another performance measure for schools. A student 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. These students’ results 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.
|The St Marylebone CE School||56%||57%||49%|
Our students achieve exceptionally well in languages and humanities – as well as in all the non-Ebacc courses we offer, which include Art, Textiles, Dance, Drama, Music, PE, Design Technology, Computing.
