Academic Results

As students at one of the top girls’ boarding schools in England, QM girls achieve excellence inside and outside the classroom. The recent 2017 GCSE results revealed that an impressive 64% of all entries received grade A/7 and above, more than three times the national average. The 2017 A Level results showed that 50% of all girls taking A Level examinations in 2017 achieved three or more A*- B grades. 40% of entries gained the highly sought after A*- A grades and almost 70% of entries gained A*- B grades. These results clearly show that life at Queen Margaret’s gives girls a fantastic grounding to go out into the world. The School offers a full range of subjects and examination results are consistently excellent. Full listings of the 2017 results will be available soon.
