MCS is celebrating another year of exceptional GCSE and A-Level results. The learning which occurs at MCS is much deeper than that which produces such results, but it is only right that we celebrate our pupils’ success and hard work, which will enable them to flourish in their chosen careers.

GCSE 2019

In Classical and Modern Languages, 86% of results were graded 9-8 (A*).

A Level 2019

46%  A* grades | 84% A*-A grades | 96% A*-B grades

18 pupils achieved 4 or more A*s

Music, English and Modern Foreign Languages are flourishing at MCS despite a marked decline in pupils studying these subjects nationally.

This year saw our best ever results in French, German and Music.


Master Helen Pike said, “Once again we are celebrating startlingly high GCSE results across the board. These are testament to the hard work of pupils and their teachers, and of course to parental support. I look forward to all that these boys will contribute to the wider world in the Sixth Form, where they will be joined by a record number of incoming new entrants.”
