A Level Achievements


Outstanding A Level achievements at The Marlborough C of E School.

We are absolutely delighted to report some outstanding achievements by Marlborough Sixth Form students in their A Levels. They have successfully secured some amazing destinations and incredible grades.

We are pleased to share the news that both Anna-Maria Foka and Anna Payman are going to Oxford University to study Classics and Ancient and Modern History respectively. We have also seen 21 pupils achieve A and A* grades across all subjects – sharing an incredible 75 top grades between them. They are: Georgie Cordy; Pip Cox; Ben Davies; Henry English; Anna-Maria Foka; Sophie Grimshaw; George Hetherington; Abigail Johnson-Brett; Theo Lonsdale; Sas Mohan; Prabir Parimelalagar; Anna Payman; William Sandford; Emma Saville; Emma Shaw; Charlotte Suckling; Jessica Trotter; Hannah Wallace; Ellie Webb; Georgia Worsfold; and Joseph Worsfold.      

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard, approved and awarded by the Exam Boards. The government is not publishing data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

Make no mistake, our young people have earned the grades they have achieved today. Perhaps more than any other group of pupils, the Year 13 class of 2021 have had to face challenges that no other group of pupils have ever faced before. They have risen to every challenge, worked tirelessly, and coped brilliantly with everything that has been thrown at them in the last two years. They are genuinely inspiring.

As well as their fantastic academic achievements, they are one of the nicest year groups we have ever had in school. They are so positive and optimistic, and seeing their success today makes us all feel hopeful for the future. The students and their families should be incredibly proud; we certainly are here in school.

We wish them well on the next stage of their journey and for the bright future ahead for all of them.
