GCSE Success at The Marlborough School: 2020

GCSE Success at The Marlborough School: 2020

We are delighted to share with you the fantastic news that pupils at The Marlborough School have achieved exceptional results in their GCSEs. Results Day has certainly been different this year in school, not least because pupils have been awarded their Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) today, following the Government’s decision earlier this week to over-turn their previous approach of having grades generated by the Exam Boards.

The process employed by The Marlborough School to determine the CAGs was one that was robust, fair and equitable for all pupils. We worked with our partner schools across the River Learning Trust to ensure that we achieved a transparent and externally verified system – producing results that were evidence-based and completed with the utmost professional integrity.

It is this context that makes these results so special. The GCSE grades achieved today by our pupils reflect years of hard work and dedication to their studies. These results have been five years in the making – with this year group fulfilling the potential which was clearly evident when they began their Marlborough journey in Year 7. Our message to our young people is really clear: you have earned these results. They have risen to every challenge placed in front of them and met it with such determination and resilience. If ever a year group have exemplified our Marlborough values of ‘perseverance’ and ‘ambition’, it is these Year 11 pupils.

We are incredibly proud of them. They have learnt so much and developed into such lovely young people. We look forward to welcoming them in greater numbers than ever before into our hugely successful Sixth Form. To those leaving us to pursue their lives at College, undertaking an Apprenticeship or in Employment, we wish them every success for the future and our very warmest wishes.
