The summer 2016 results have proved a record year at St Mary Magdalene. Consequently our students are heading off to a fantastic range of universities including LSE, UCL, Kings, Durham, Warwick, Leeds, St Andrew’s, Exeter, Surrey, Bath, Queen Mary and overseas including Texas A&M and Trinity College Dublin.
Two students met the terms of their scholarship offers:
Cynthia Anyadi earned a place on the Deloitte Leavers Scheme. This means that she will take a gap year during which she will work for Deloitte and receive a bursary to travel at the end of that year. When she starts at the London School of Economics in September 2017, she will also receive financial support with her tuition fees.
Leah Olasehinde gained high grades, which means that she will have reduced tuition fees for the duration of her degree course at King’s College London, where she will be reading Law and French.
The IB Diploma students achieved an average point score 34 set against a world average of 30. 10% of those results were a point score of 40 or more out of a possible 45 and for those who are less familiar with the IB, those results are across six subjects!
At A Level it was a similar story of high achievement with 36% of all results at A* or A grade; 60% at A*-B and 90% at A*-C.
Welcoming these results, Victoria Linsley, Headteacher, says: ‘Both the A Level and IB results have improved on last year. That’s incredible given that we were ranked number five in the country by the Telegraph in the top comprehensives at Sixth Form last year. We’re looking forward to this year’s ‘league tables’ with bated breath! I am very proud of the students whose hard work and dedication have led to these results, and of the staff who nurtured them.’
