GCSE Results 2023

Malmesbury School GCSE Results 2023

Headteacher Brett Jouny said:

“We are so proud of our Year 11 cohort and the outcomes they have achieved. Given the backdrop of so much disruption to their education throughout the last 4 years, they have gained excellent results which will prepare them so well for their next steps.

Our high outcomes have continued this year with a very strong pass rate at both Grade 4 and Grade 5 plus. The number of students gaining a grade 4 in both English and Maths has remained high at an excellent 80%.

We are thrilled to welcome a huge number of Year 11 students back into our outstanding sixth form and wish all our students the very best of luck for their exciting next steps. All students should be very proud of the excellent progress they have made at Malmesbury School since arriving in Year 7.

I must end by recognising the huge dedication and effort of our staff, without whom these amazing results would not be possible. They work tirelessly to ensure that every student has the opportunity to thrive, and these results show what a consistently fantastic job they do in our Happy Caring and Excellent school”.

A-Level Results 2023

Malmesbury School A-Level Results 2023

Headteacher Brett Jouny said:

“We are thrilled by the A-level exam results achieved by our students this year. They are a true reflection of the hard work and resilience the students have shown over a very disrupted period in education. We must not forget that this cohort has faced huge challenges over the last four years, and they approached their exams with an impressive focus and determination.

The proportion of A* and A grades awarded to Malmesbury Sixth Form students at A-level is the highest in the school’s history with 38% of all grades at the very highest level. In terms of progress, these results also maintain our excellent value added, with a brilliant 65% of grades awarded at A*-B.

We are so proud of our students and know that our entire school community have a part to play in these excellent results. I would like to pay a special tribute to our brilliant staff, who always go above and beyond for our students and these outcomes are testament to their hard work.

It is exciting that a large proportion of students have once again been accepted onto their first-choice courses at university, with students attending a variety of courses at top universities. I am proud that the hard work and success of all students in their time at our Happy, Caring and Excellent school will prepare them well for their next steps.”

A-Level Results 2022

Headteacher Brett Jouny said:

“We are absolutely delighted with this year’s A-Level results; they reflect the incredible hard work of all students and staff. Having faced a very disrupted GCSE and A-level experience due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the results exemplify the dedication and resilience of our students. The number of students achieving the very best grades continues to be notably high.

We are thrilled that over 90% of students have been accepted into their intended destinations, with students attending a variety of courses at top universities including Oxford and Cambridge. The hard work and success of all students in their time at Malmesbury School will prepare them well for their exciting next steps.

In agreement with colleagues in other schools locally and nationally, we believe it is not appropriate to compare these results to previous years due to the nature of the grading arrangements used by the exam boards in this first post pandemic set of examination results. It is also not appropriate to compare the results of one school to another due to the uneven impact of COVID related staff and student absences in different schools.

I would like to pay tribute to the hard work of all the staff at the school who overcame significant challenges related to the pandemic over the last two years. As always, they have strived to ensure that our students received outstanding teaching, inspiring and challenging them to develop their knowledge and skills.”

Malmesbury Spelling Bee 2022

After an amazing week of spelling we finally crowned our winner of the 2022 Malmesbury Spelling Bee – Tom Auty, 7TG. Cool as a cucumber under pressure, Tom fought off a total of 90 other competitors through three rounds to take the title. What a win for William House. Well done Tom.

Return From Lockdown Survey

The past 12 months in education have been like no other. Students, parents, teachers and support staff have had to adapt to an ever-changing landscape as almost every aspect of school life was impacted in some way by the fight against the pandemic.

Throughout this time, parent input received via various surveys we have carried out has helped shape our approach. As school is beginning to feel like the place we know and love we are keen to hear your views again. These will enable us to plan effectively for the remained of this year and beyond to ensure that the education we provide to our students is in line with our overarching intent and appropriate to their needs.
