GCSE Results 2022


GCSE Success at The Marlborough School  

The pupils of The Marlborough School have shown unbelievable commitment and courage in performing to an incredibly high standard in their GCSEs examinations. They have exceeded all our expectations and achieved a fantastic set of results. These pupils deserve every credit for what they have gone through over the past two years of their GCSE courses. We are so proud of the way they persevered, maintained a positive attitude, and dealt with all the challenges the pandemic could throw at them with maturity and determination. To have emerged from this period with such brilliant grades and destinations is a truly remarkable achievement.

The headline data for The Marlborough School is as follows: 

Percentage of students achieving both English and Maths at Level 4 and above: 77%
Percentage of students achieving both English and Maths at Level 5 and above: 63%
Percentage of students achieving a Level 5 or above in English: 77%
Percentage of students achieving a Level 5 or above in maths: 66%
Attainment 8: 54.90

These results compare favourably with 2019 which was the last time pupil results were based on examinations that they had taken. These results show that Marlborough is a school where you can fulfil all your ambitions, and that we can compete academically with any school in the country. 

Pupils across the board have performed really well in all subjects, and, once again, our most able pupils have excelled. A significant number of pupils achieved all Grades 9-7, whilst an incredible 17 pupils have achieved 4 or more Grade 9s in their subjects. They are:

Tom Barton; Alex Bell; Jonathan Davies; Philippa Dellar; Ruby Dowling; Sacha Eaton; Ava Gavrilovic; Anna Guillain; Max Gunthardt; Amber Hands; Daniel Hayns; Farrell Ledford; Finlay McDonagh; Yasmin Preston; Tamzin Roberts; Jake Selway; and Ella Thornburn.

As I wrote last week, behind all our results and data are so many individual stories, and we are so proud of what each and every pupil has achieved. As our GCSE results continue to improve, we are looking forward to welcoming a record number of our Year 11 pupils into Sixth Form next year – as the cycle of success continues. 

To those pupils leaving us to begin College places or high-quality Apprenticeships, we wish them every success in their lives after Marlborough. Be proud of what you have achieved and of the people you have become.
