A-level Results

A-level 2022

  • Top Independent School in the South West and 52nd nationally in The Telegraph’s A-level League Tables
  • 70.4% 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 seventh consecutive year with a record number of students choosing ‘caring careers’ such as medicine, veterinary, nursing, midwifery and physiotherapy.

“After all that has happened in the past two years, I couldn’t be prouder of them all,” said Headmistress, Sarah Dunn. “The Class of 2022 have proven themselves to be exceptional students and these are very just rewards. This whole year group epitomises immense courage, resilience and incredible determination and I feel convinced that, in years to come, they will all look back and be able to reflect upon how they overcame adversity and went on to achieve remarkable things. 

“I must also wholeheartedly thank all the staff who have been absolutely instrumental in these successes, as the girls have testified. We are exceptionally fortunate that our culture has a strong focus on wellbeing, while our teaching is based upon the individual and building confidence whether that be in the classroom or via more remote methods. Without doubt, the tireless efforts of our staff, in addition to the sheer talents of our students, has culminated in the huge successes that we are all celebrating today.” 

Extended Project Qualification

The EPQ results for 2022 were extraordinary with 65% of students gaining an A* grade , 20% receiving an A and 15% a B. This research and study skill based qualification will give them excellent foundations for the independence of university study.
