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.
