- Top Independent School in the South West and 60th nationally in The Telegraph’s A-level League Tables (August 2019)
- 60.4% of all grades were A*- A
- 44% achieve at least three straight A*s or As at A-level
This remarkable Maynard cohort have posted a staggering set of A-level results for 2019 with another 100% pass rate. Over 60% achieved A* – A with an impressive 44% scoring at least three straight A* or A grades in their subjects, bucking the national trend of 25.5% achieving an A grade or higher.
Across the board, the Maynard students are pursuing a huge range of options at degree level with an almost perfect 50/50 split between Arts and STEM subjects – from English, History, PPE and International Relations to Mathematics, Economics, Architecture, Medicine, Physics and Engineering. It is especially pleasing to see such strong representation of 50% entering the STEM subjects and in particular engineering fields, where nationally women only represent 19% of students. Destinations include Cambridge, Imperial, UCL, Exeter, Bristol, Warwick and Durham amongst others.
One thing is certain: this has been another outstanding year for The Maynard School and its students who not only have an enviable record for their academic supremacy, but should also be applauded for their incredible extra-curricular achievements.
“What all of the young women here have achieved is staggering!” said Headmistress, Sarah Dunn. “One minute they are trudging across the moor in the Ten Tors Challenge, receiving their gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards at Buckingham Palace, winning literary prizes from Oxford University, heading up another entrepreneurial venture as part of the Young Enterprise team or fighting a heartfelt cause as one of our Eco Warriors, playing at the Albert Hall or treading the boards at stages across the country and then the very next they are topping the country’s statistics as some of the most talented A-level students in the UK. How they juggle these incredibly busy lives leaves me in constant awe and I am so proud of each and every one of them. There is now doubt the brightest of futures beckon for them all. It has been our pleasure and honour to have them at the school and I wish them the very best of luck for the next chapter!”
Extended Project Qualification
The EPQ results for 2019 are extraordinary with 64% of students gaining an A* grade, 82% achieving A*/A and 100% achieving A*-B. This research and study skill based qualification will give them excellent foundations for the independence of university study.
