Head of School comment:

Students at QMGS were celebrating on Thursday following a fantastic set of results. 74% of all grades came in at A/A* or 7-9. In the new Mathematics GCSE, 92% of all entries were a grade 7 or better.

This year group has risen to the challenge of being the first cohort tested with the new-style GCSEs. Their attitudes to learning have been excellent throughout and they should be very proud of their efforts.

Of course, they have much more to be proud of other than their exam performance. Members of year 11 were part of the expedition to Borneo in July, have skied in Canada and dived off the West African coastline. They have excelled in sporting/musical performance and have impressed with their entries to the annual art exhibition and national design competitions.

I am delighted for their success and look forward to their continued involvement with QMGS in the sixth form.

Head of School comment:

“In a year predicted to throw up huge variability in the A-level exam results on a national scale, the students at Queen Mary’s Grammar School have shown their resilience by achieving some fantastic outcomes. The proportion of grades awarded at B or better has remained the same as 2016, representing an impressive performance, of which we are delighted. The students are going on to a whole range of exciting university and work-related opportunities for the next step in their education.

However, we are extremely proud of their achievements beyond the classroom as well. Whether it has been through their participation in the School’s Combined Cadet Force, expeditions to Tanzania and Borneo, achievements in the spheres of design, music and the arts, languages and sport, or in their selfless commitment to mentoring and volunteering, they have become well-rounded young men and women.

They have shown themselves to be international in outlook, enterprising in spirit and generous in their approach. It is this, together with their A Level success, which makes us confident that they are equipped for an exciting future. Life to the full.”
