MGS Boys with their results

MGS is celebrating another year of outstanding examination results for its Sixth Form pupils.

Boys arrived at School today, 17th August, to pick up their results. More than a third of all grades (36%) were at the coveted A* level, a record for MGS. 71% of all grades were A* or A,and 91% of grades were A*, A or B.

There were many exceptional individual performances; 19 pupils were awarded A* grades in all their subjects, six of these pupils achieved four A* grades, a tremendous achievement.  76 boys achieved a clean sweep of A* and A grades. Along with A-level and International A-level results, MGS pupils received Cambridge Pre-University examination results in a number of subjects. The Pre-U is a challenging alternative to A-level, with its own grading system. The highest Pre-U grade, a Distinction One (D1), is a grade above A*, whilst a D2 is equivalent to an A*.

54% of all Pre-U grades awarded to MGS pupils were D1 or D2, an outstanding performance. Two pupils were awarded two D1 grades, truly remarkable achievements.

Oxford and Cambridge offered places to 22 Manchester Grammar School pupils in 2017.

Other leading universities to which MGS boys will be heading this autumn include Imperial, UCL, LSE, Durham, Warwick, York, KCL, Manchester, Nottingham and Leeds.27 pupils received university offers to study Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science.

The School’s High Master, Dr Martin Boulton, said, “This year’s results are exceptional and I am absolutely delighted that the talent, hard work and dedication of our boys has been rewarded. For more than a third of all A-level grades to be A*s, and 91% of all grades at A*-B level, is fantastic, and once again places The Manchester Grammar School in a very select number of schools nationally. “It is a source of great pride for everyone at the School to have seen these boys grow and mature into young men during their time with us. Our talented and dedicated staff aim to challenge our pupils intellectually and develop their academic passions,whatever they may be. It is wonderful to see them rewarded with excellent grades and moving on to study a diverse range of courses at leading universities. “In congratulating them, I would also like to wish them every success as they take the next exciting steps of their academic journeys.”
