Marling School student, James Burke said: “The teaching at Marling is very good, everyone supports you with the subjects, and the staff are really approachable if you need help or practice for exams. I worked hard in year 11 so I am really pleased with my results. I’m going to study Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Geology at Marling Sixth Form.”

Four students scored grade 9s in all their subjects, 11 students scored 7 or more grade 9s and 103 students scored five or more grades 9 to 7.

Glen Balmer, Marling School’s headteacher said: “I am incredibly proud of all our students and staff. Our Year 11s richly deserve these exceptional results for their hard work and the inspirational way they responded to all the challenges thrown at them by the pandemic. 

“Our staff also showed great adaptability, positivity and resilience throughout the last two and a half years. I am in awe of their dedication, skill and commitment to supporting our young people.”
