At The Malling School, you entrust your child to us not only to receive an exceptional education, but to grow into a caring, determined and reflective adult who achieves their ambitions and makes valuable contributions to society.
We are pleased to announce that Merlin has gained his Gold Award and is now our fully qualified Dog Mentor. Since starting his mentoring journey Merlin has proved to be a positive and calming influence on our students. Part of his role is to meet and greet anxious and new pupils in the morning. During the school day Merlin also works with a number of students developing their confidence, resilience, communication skills and general well being. Well done Merlin. A fantastic achievement!

GCSE & KS5 BEST RESULTS EVER! The Malling School has celebrated another successful year of GCSE and Key Stage 5 outcomes with the best data ever recorded. Students were welcomed into the school to collect their examination results and this was the first time since 2019 that they could celebrate results from official exams rather than teacher assessed grades. GCSE This year saw the return of external exams and the students have been rewarded with excellent grades across all subjects. There has been a significant increase in the number of students who achieved strong passes in both English and Maths. English Baccalaureate and options subjects achieved exceptional results with students exceeding their potential. Individual successes include Skye Pinder who achieved five grade 9s and four grade 8s, Ashley Lunn with three 9s, two 8s, one 7 and two 6s. Both students are returning to The Malling School in September to form part of the first cohort studying the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The school is incredibly proud of these excellent results which are a true reflection of the determination, dedication and support from students, parents/carers and teachers. KEY STAGE 5 The significantly oversubscribed Sixth Form continues to deliver excellent results for their students through the International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme and bespoke Level 2 curriculum. IB Computing and BTEC Performing Arts proved to be areas of strength with excellent value-added scores, along with IB Biology, Geography, History, Maths, Psychology, Film and BTEC Art who all achieved positive value added. Overall, the school achieved an average academic grade of C+ and average vocational grade of Distinction. All students leave Year 13 with a meaningful destination, including 27 students going to university to study subjects ranging from computing and cyber security to ancient history, the arts and physiotherapy. Destinations include the University of Nottingham, London School of Economics, York and Newcastle University. We also bid farewell to students leaving to join the Armed Forces, apprenticeships, and supported internships. Amongst the many individual successes are Alicia Muir who secured the equivalent of 5 A* grades at A level and Sophie Stone who has secured a 'Future Engineers' apprenticeship with Amazon. More photos to follow.

Careers Fair On Friday we were lucky enough to have over 30 employers and learning providers attend our careers fair. Students were excited to not only ask questions, but really get involved and have some hands-on experience, such as, trying on uniform, exploring concealment devices with the Border Force team, navigating the inside of a police car, using a real training aid to birth a baby and investigating a horse's skull! We'd like to thank the exhibitors for making the fair our most interactive yet and praise our students for being so polite and engaged. What a wonderful day! Look out for more exciting careers events like this in the next academic year.
3D Design and Textiles Challenge Winners In Technology this year we released home learning challenges, instead of homework tasks. As a result we have seen some very high quality work created by our students! It gives us great pleasure to share with you the results of our most recent two challenges for 3D Design and Textiles. Judging was very difficult because the quality of work produced was of a very high standard. Students received a range of great prizes ranging from Amazon vouchers, art materials and Fire HD 8 Tablets. We would like to say a special congratulations to Harry Heath in Year 8 who won 1st place in the 3D Design challenge and Julius Ovsepian in Year 9 who won 1st place in the Textiles challenge. We look forward to launching the new art challenge in September with more fantastic prizes to be won. Mrs Barker (Head of Technology)
