Maynard students excelled in their A-levels across the board in 2018 with a 100% pass rate and an incredible 81% achieving A*-B.
Year on year, the school always far exceeds the national average of the top grades and this was no exception with 52% achieving A*-A.
They are now set to follow their passions at the most prestigious universities in a huge array of subjects such as Chemical Engineering, Physics, Economics, Law, Medicine, Dentistry, Environmental Science, English, Geography and International Relations. Destinations include Oxford, Imperial College London, Durham, UCL, Exeter, Bristol and Edinburgh amongst others.
“These are an incredible conscientious, caring, creative and courageous group of young women, outward looking and with a real sense of social responsibility,” said Tom Hibberd, the Head of the Sixth Form. “This is reflected in their university destinations for next year, with many entering a variety of Medical, Dentistry, Nursing or Veterinary fields, having previously successfully navigated the demanding interview processes, which is testimony to their character.”
Extended Project Qualification
The EPQ results for 2018 are extraordinary with 66% of students gaining an A* grade, and 89% achieving A*-B. The girls have excelled, covering diverse topics from whether the WHO’s response to the Zika virus was correct, to the extent to which the bottom of a Surfboard affects the maximum velocity it is able to attain. This research and study skill based qualification will give them excellent foundations for the independence of university study.
