We, parents and the pupils themselves are of course focused on high achievement, in sports, in all our clubs and activities and most importantly in our classrooms. However, the way of life here, in the way the older pupils look out for and mentor the younger ones, the happiness, the laughter, the sheer realness of the relationships mean that human qualities, life skills, emotional intelligence are always to the fore. We say here that your academic qualifications are important, yet qualifications without qualities are to no avail. And on the point of academic qualifications, I should tell you that we consistently rank in the top 1% in the country for exam results.
Dedicated and highly qualified staff foster a respect for learning that enables Marist pupils to achieve consistently high academic results in their public examinations, year on year. This culture of success and excellence puts The Marist amongst the highest-ranking schools in the country and allows our VI Form to progress on to higher education in Russell Group Universities, Universities abroad and within the UK.

To complement our curriculum, we offer extra opportunities for challenge, and extend every learner’s academic ability through our Aim Higher Programme. Pupils can take part in a wealth of educational day visits and residential trips, both in the UK and overseas and are encouraged to join in with an extensive programme of co-curricular and enrichment opportunities which help to create well-rounded individuals.
Our Scholars’ programme runs alongside Aim Higher, with scholarships awarded to pupils who demonstrate excellence in their chosen field and in their attitude to further learning. Scholars have access to mentorship and subject-specific tools and opportunities to support their ongoing progression.
