Smiles all round as The Marist School celebrates brilliant GCSE results for another year
GCSE Results day 2023 has proved to be another successful year for The Marist School, where 35% of grades were 9-8. With the majority of students sitting 10-11 GCSEs, impressive results have been obtained across the board, doubling the proportion of grade 9s achieved in 2019 and in line with 2022’s results. Special mention should go to Neema M and Emily C who have both performed incredibly, having both received 11 grade 9s.
Further individual achievements to commend include:
Lisa C, with 12 GCSEs, including 10 at grade 9.
Lucy J, who, with 11 subjects at grade 9-7, has been presented an All-Round Scholarship for VI Form.
Isabella P, with 6 grade 9s and 4 at grade 8 and will be next year’s VI Form Drama Scholar
The average grade in STEM subjects was over 7, with half of grades at 9-8. These students will build on their success in the sciences in their further studies with 70% choosing at least one STEM subject at A Level.
Further high performing subjects include Physical Education, History, and Art, in which an impressive 92% of grades were 9-7; this demonstrates the breadth of achievement at The Marist.
Principal Mrs Jo Smith comments:
‘A huge congratulations to our Year 11 cohort for a wonderful set of results. This year, 43% of grades secured were 2 or more places higher than their targets, which really speaks of the progress our students’ have made since starting at The Marist. This is testament to their drive and ambition as well as the high expectations of their teachers. I am delighted to see strong accomplishment in a wide range of subject areas, with excellent results in English and STEM subjects. This is very exciting as the school continues to break stereotypes through all-girls’ education. Well done everyone, I very much look forward to seeing your further progress in VI Form from September’.
