Maidstone Grammar School for Girls has again celebrated a year of excellent GCSE examination results. This summer has seen the introduction of many new GCSE specifications with the new 9-1 grades now being awarded across most subjects. 56% of all students at Maidstone Grammar School for Girls achieved 5 or more 9-7 ( A/A*) grades, with 33 students achieving 10 or more 9-7 grades. Over 10% of grades on the new specifications were grade 9 and special mention goes to Rashmi Knight who achieved grade 9 in all of her eleven subjects! We are extremely pleased to be celebrating the fantastic achievements of our Year 11 students today. Our girls have risen to the increased challenge of the new GCSE specifications and have been very successful. We are very proud of their achievements and look forward to the next stage of their education at MGGS.’

This summer has seen our students achieve the best set of A level results since the curriculum reform, which is recognition of the many hours of hard work students have put in, together with the support and guidance of the teaching staff throughout their time at MGGS.

We are exceptionally proud of our students, some of whom have achieved considerable personal success in the face of challenging circumstances.  This cohort have continued the trend of increasing academic results year on year at MGGS, and this will enable them to pursue their individual goals.

Each of our students has worked hard and we are proud to celebrate their achievements today as they go on to pursue a wide range of pathways, including university study, apprenticeships and employment.
