As everyone knows, it was not possible for pupils to sit public examinations in 2020 or 2021. Therefore we are presenting our 2019 results as our most recent set of externally assessed results. These will give our prospective families the best gauge of the quality of our results on a national level.
35 boys achieved 10 or more 9 – 8 (A*) grades in 2019
58 boys achieved 9 or more 9 – 8 (A*) grades in 2019
In 2021, grades were awarded following a three-week exam period, in order to make the process both as rigorous and fair as possible.
The Master said: “Pupils at Magdalen College School are fortunate in that they were able to continue with their learning despite being locked down. That said, they have more than risen to the many challenges they have faced, and have in many cases worked harder than ever before. These strong results are in part testament to that, and pupils should be proud of their achievements while acknowledging the support they have received from their teachers and their families”.
Notable individual achievements include Ed F who achieved ten 9 grades in addition to winning the U16 South West Golf Championships and Kasper B who continued his GCSE studies whilst undergoing radiotherapy for cancer.

Cambridge, Oxford and Durham were the two most popular destinations, with the vast majority of pupils going to Russell Group Universities.
