MCS pupils achieve perennially strong GCSE results. 2020 has been a challenging and anomalous year, but this should not detract from the resilience and endeavour of pupils and their teachers.
54 boys achieved straight 9 and 8 (A*) grades
21 boys achieved straight 9 (A*) grades
53% A* grades | 86% A*-A grades | 98% A*-B grades
5 pupils achieved 5 A*s
26 pupils achieved 4 A*s
Master Helen Pike said, “There is a great sense of relief today at MCS as our pupils receive their GCSE results. These boys have shown great resilience and good cheer as they moved from GCSE revision to a series of electives. They have missed their summer sport and other activities most keenly, and we shall be offering some of those in the coming weeks when school reopens. We look forward to seeing all that these boys will achieve next, alongside the strong cohort of new pupils we are welcoming to MCS in September”.
Master Helen Pike said, “I am so proud of our talented A-level students. They have shown exceptional resilience and good cheer in the face of an extraordinary year, and their resilience will be a key attribute in their future success, too.”
Individual successes include four pupils who attained 5 A*s: Head Boy James B and Bocheng X will both study Natural Sciences at Cambridge, Michael R-A will study Natural Sciences at Imperial and Robert D will study Medicine at Cambridge.
Oxbridge and Durham were the two most popular destinations, with the vast majority of pupils going to Russell Group Universities.
