GCSE & KS5 - best data ever recorded!

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.


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.
