A-level Results

A-level 2021

  • Top Independent School in the South West and 60th nationally in The Telegraph’s A-level League Tables (August 2019)
  • 78.8% of all grades were A*- A
  • The Department of Education’s best independent school for Facilitating Subjects (the ones most commonly required for entry to leading universities) in the South West
  • Officially ‘above average’ for value-added at A-level (DofE Performance Tables 2019), proving we can markedly improve predicted grades
  • Well over 80% of students obtain offers each year to Russell Group universities

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 a 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. The Maynard maintains a 100% pass rate for the sixth consecutive year with a record number of students choosing ‘caring careers’ such as medicine, veterinary, nursing, midwifery and physiotherapy.

Headmistress Sarah Dunn delighted in the Results Day celebrations and was overjoyed by the success of all our students. “My huge congratulations to the entire Class of 2021. They have been an utter joy to work with throughout their two years in our Sixth Form and these brilliant results are testimony to their enormous talents. Although steadfast in their ambitions, they have shown remarkable flexibility since the start of the pandemic and I applaud their grit and determination to leave our gates with these wonderful grades, paving the way for justifiably bright futures. I wish them absolutely every success.

“I would also like to extend a huge thank you to all of their teachers who have been by their sides every step of the way during their Sixth Form journey, working tirelessly to ensure that the process was scrupulously fair, and that all students achieved the grades they deserved. They, too, have been truly wonderful.”

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.
