GCSE and A Level Results Days

Best Ever A Level Results!

This year's A Level results were record-breaking and our best ever. A whopping 43% of exams were at the highest A*-A grades including 16% at A* which is well above national figures. The percentage of grades at A*-B was 69% and the pass rate was 99%.A large number of students exceeded their predicted grades including 6 students who achieved A* in every subject, 31 students achieved 3 A grade passes or better and nearly a third of students achieving at least 1 A grade. Most students have gone on to secure places at their first choice universities including many of the highly selective universities.

GCSE Results Information 

If you are a Marling student you need to collect your GCSE results from 9:00am on Thursday 22nd August from the Marling Dining Hall. 

Remember if you are not able to collect them in person you must have submitted prior written confirmation to the school naming the person who will collect them on your behalf.

This person must bring ID with them on the day before your results will be passed to them.

We hope that you continue your studies at Marling Sixth Form. All students must complete a blue form contained in your results envelope before you leave school on Results Day, or by 4pm at the very latest on 22nd August if you are not collecting your results in person. Failure to do so may affect your place in the Sixth Form in the event of over-subscription. 

If you are not a Marling student you will receive an email to the address you have given us the week before Results Day. This email will contain information and a link to an online Google-form.

It is crucial that you complete the form by 4pm on Results Day to accept your place or inform us of your intentions. Failure to do so may affect your place at Marling Sixth Form in the event of over-subscription.

When completing the Google-form, please take care to enter your name as per your application form. 


A Level Results 2018

Last year’s Marling Sixth Form students were awarded another excellent set of A Level results, meaning that over the past 5 years 36% of A level grades have been A* to A, 66% A* to B and 85% A*to C, with a total pass rate of 99%. This year 14.4% of grades were at A*.

As well as outstanding attainment, Marling is particularly proud of its year on year positive Value Added score. Marling School is the joint 14th highest grammar school in the whole country for Value Added at A Level and is in the top 10% nationally of all state, independent, academy schools and sixth forms.

The Value Added measure compares students’ final A Level grades with their predicted grades and awards a positive value if students achieve higher than their predictions. Overall this means that sixth formers studying at Marling have an excellent chance of achieving their full potential.


95 students were placed at UK Universities in 2018,  44% of which were Russell Group institutions. One student embarked on an art foundation course and two students went to Leeds College of Music. 

Apprenticeship places were obtained at St James's Place, Atkins and Jaguar Landrover and one of our students started officer training with the RAF.
