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.
