Students at Marling Sixth Form are celebrating after receiving their A-level results today with a high percentage receiving A and A* grades.
18% of the grades awarded this year were A* with 44% at grades A*-A and 74% were graded A*-B, with the pass rate at 99%.
Headteacher Glen Balmer said: “I am so proud of our Class of 2022. The phenomenal results they have achieved are a reward for the remarkable resilience they have shown through the challenges of the last two years.
“They are an inspiring group of young people who brought so much to our school. They richly deserve their success, and they will take their next steps with confidence and are ready to make a difference in the communities around them.
“These fabulous results also bear testament to the skill and dedication of our staff. I am in awe of how they responded to the constant flux of the last two years. Throughout they inspired, supported and gave huge confidence to our students.”
There were also many individual successes with 13 students gaining all of their grades at the top A* grade, while 44 students achieved three or more A* or A grades and 97 students achieved three or more A*-B grades.
Head of Sixth Form, Steve Farr said: “I would like to offer my congratulations to all Marling students. Each student is an individual; their journey through Marling sixth form and the challenges of the last two years represent far more than a grade.
“Their successes, both individually and as a cohort, means that students are progressing on to their chosen destinations, whether that be to university, a higher apprenticeship, foundation course or experiencing the wider world through travel or employment.
“Many have matched or exceeded their offers for their chosen courses, including highly selective universities requiring A* grades such as Cambridge, Imperial College, Durham and Bath universities. Huge congratulations to all.”
“I’m thrilled with my three A* grades and with the experience I’ve had at Marling Sixth Form.”

“I’m thrilled with my results! Everyone at Marling was so supportive and helped me to do so well.”
“I’m really happy with my three A* results and so glad I chose to come to Marling. It felt like a big step to take at 16 but it has been such a good experience and I am now celebrating success.”
“I’m so pleased with my A Levels and am really excited to be going to study dentistry. Choosing to come to Marling was a big decision for me but it gave me so many opportunities and so much support and I also got to make loads of new friends.”
“I’m so thrilled and so relieved! Sixth Form at Marling was a great experience, I changed so much in my time here and was inspired to do well.”
“I’m so pleased with my results. Coming to Marling improved my work ethic so much – I really don’t think I would have worked so hard if I hadn’t chosen to come here.”
