Examination Results

This 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.
