2023 A Level Results
A Level Students at St Mary’s in Gerrards Cross have been celebrating some wonderful examination results today. This creative and inspiring group of students have been exemplary role models to their peers throughout Year 13 with their idea generation, strong leadership qualities, and enthusiasm and have, today, continued to be an inspiration to younger students with their A-level results and plans for their next steps.
They have achieved places at an exciting range of courses including Engineering at Exeter, Music at Liverpool, The Royal Veterinary College, Philosophy at Birmingham, Sports Management at Bath, Japanese at Durham, Drama at Exeter, and Sociology at Loughborough to name but a few. All of our students are either going on to a chosen University or Further Education establishment with some taking gap years, before further study, to complete further courses, gain invaluable work experience or travel; all looking forward to very bright futures ahead. They leave St Mary’s equipped with the passion, skills, and self-belief to be exactly who they want to be and to follow their dreams and we can’t wait to hear what they are doing in years to come.
With an overall impressive 80% A*-B and a 100% pass rate, we are proud of all of our students’ achievements. The Social Sciences achieved outstanding results with 100% A*-B in Psychology and Sociology. Our Head Girl, Phoebe, achieved an impressive 3 A* grades and the majority of those who applied to university this year will be attending Russell Group Universities.
We will be celebrating all the girls’ achievements reflected in these A-level grades with their teachers and parents, as we wish them well for their future courses and careers. We look forward to keeping in touch with the families and welcoming the girls back to St Mary’s whenever they so wish!
Mrs Adams, Headmistress said:
“I am so delighted for our A-level students and their families today. It is certainly a day to celebrate our young people; after all their extremely hard work, dedication and commitment to their A-level studies, they now have some truly impressive results and will go on to some really exciting courses of further study. This outstanding cohort has distinguished themselves as leaders on the sports field, on the stage in the expressive arts, in their charity work, and as fabulous role models. We will certainly miss them and look forward to seeing what they do in the future.
To enable our students to thrive takes successful teamwork in the form of superb partnerships with parents, many of whom have been with us since their daughters were in Prep, and the expert guidance of their teachers. Our teaching staff have the highest aspirations for our students and walk alongside them, steering and guiding them every step of the way. Today we will be celebrating all of these contributions and we wish each and every family well as they now embark on their courses further study or fulfilling gap year plans. Many congratulations to all!”
2023 GCSE Results
Today, our whole school community is celebrating the fabulous set of results achieved by our Year 11 students. The way in which this year group approached their GCSEs from their revision and commitment to preparing for their GCSEs in the months leading up to examination season, to the calm and composed manner with which they entered and sat each and every paper, was exemplary. The results they are receiving today are a testament to their collective positive attitude, maturity and resilience.
With 16.5% of grades awarded at a grade 9, and 31% at grade 9-8, 70% of grades were at 6 and above, we are pleased to say that our students have done themselves proud. They have bucked the national trend and our overall results are higher than those achieved in 2018 and 2019 – an incredible achievement!
We are excited to be welcoming these girls into our Sixth Form to continue their educational journey at St Mary’s. During the next two years, they will gain further independence and confidence in their studies, as well as build invaluable working relationships with their teachers to allow them to continue to flourish and exceed their potential once again in two years’ time when they receive their A Level results.
In our purpose built Sixth Form Centre, Cedar House, these students will broaden their horizons with our exciting Sixth Form Enrichment Programme and many students will also opt to study the Extended Project Qualification alongside their A level subjects, adding further breadth to their curriculum in preparation for their careers at University and beyond.
Mrs Adams, Headmistress said,
“The resilience and perseverance shown by this GCSE cohort cannot be underestimated. Following the pandemic years, they have shown tremendous determination to do their very best and have come out with a fantastic set of GCSE results. I am looking forward to working with them in the Sixth Form as they further their knowledge and skills in their A level curriculum and as they work towards their future goals.
Congratulations also to their wonderful teachers and to all the families who have supported them along the way; it is a day to celebrate the successes of all our Year 11 students”.
