Academic Results

As students at one of the top girls’ boarding schools in England, QM girls achieve excellence inside and outside the classroom. In 2016 our girls achieved a 100% pass rate at A Level. The recent results report that 50% of entries gained the highly sought after A*-A grades and nearly 80% of entries gained A*-B grades. 30% of all girls taking A Level examinations in 2016 achieved three or more A*-A grades. GCSE results in 2016 were similarly impressive, with 98% of students achieving five or more A*-C grades, far outstripping the falling national average of 67%. 86% of all QM GCSE entries in 2016 gained A*-B grades, up from 81% in 2015. 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.
