GCSE Results

GCSE 2022

  • 81.2% of all Maynard grades are 7-9.
  • 33.4% were awarded the highest grade 9
  • 60.3% are Grade 8 or 9
  • Better results than Centre Assessed Grades (2020) and Teacher Assessed Grades (2021)


It was certainly a time for celebration as students gathered excitedly to receive their results only to find that they have broken our school record for the best GCSE results in our history! One third of all results were graded the very top mark of 9 (A**), 60.3% of exams sat were awarded 8 or 9 and a massive 81.2% were Grade 7 (A) or above. Not to mention a 100% pass rate.

“It’s phenomenal – they are higher than the previous two years of Centre Assessed Grades (2020) and last year’s Teacher Assessed Grades. It really is quite unprecedented and completely flouts all the headlines predicting a sharp fall in the top grades. I’m stunned, relieved but not remotely surprised after all the effort and hard work that has gone into this. What a proud moment for us all!” said Sarah Dunn, Headmistress.

From such a bumper crop of results, it is hard to pick the stand-out stories but mention must go to Matilda who added to last year’s 9 (A**) in German, which she took in just one year, with a further clean sweep of nine 9s this year. “She moved from an International School abroad to The Maynard at the start of GCSEs, with a new system, new subjects and a totally different way of working so she should be really proud of herself,” said Matilda’s beaming mother. “The Maynard has been so supportive and the teaching has been excellent. It’s all worked out really well and she is excited about the thought of starting her A-levels.”
