GCSE Results and Destinations 2016
We would like to congratulate our former Y11 pupils on their hard work and successes in their GCSEs this year. The focus and determination of many of our pupils paid off and the reward of such positive outcomes was evident in the pride and delight of pupils on results day. 80% of Maharishi School pupils achieved C+ in English despite a national drop in English results and 73% of our pupils achieved C+ in Maths. 67% of our pupils achieved C+ in both English and Maths compared with a national average of 58.7%. 60% of our pupils achieved 5A*-C including English and Maths, compared to 52.8% nationally. Our Attainment 8 score is 50 compared with a national average of 48 and 33% of our pupils achieved the English Baccalaureate compared with a national average of 22.8% – nationally 33.6% of pupils were entered for the Ebacc; at Maharishi School the entry figure was 53%. We do not have a Progress 8 score as too few of the 2016 cohort have prior KS2 scores.We are immensely proud of the efforts of all of our pupils many of whom exceeded their targets.
But at Maharishi School achievement is measured by more than just academic results. We want all our graduates to leave with a heightened sense of self-confidence, a level of social conscience that reflects our motto ‘The World is my Family’ and most of all, happiness. In fact Ofsted’s Parent View Survey indicates that 98% of parents report that their child is happy at our School.
Taken together, these factors have enabled our graduates to attend the best colleges, and later on, world class universities including Oxbridge, Imperial, Warwick, Manchester and UCL. This past year has seen our 100% of our graduates move on to further education including: 6% to an Apprenticeship, 27% to a Further Education College, and 67% to one of two nationally leading 6th Form colleges.
We would like to express our thanks to staff, parents and governors for their support in guiding our pupils towards the fulfillment of their ambitions and we wish our Y11 leavers all the very best for the future.

2014-2015 Key Stage 4 & Key Stage 2 Results
2015 Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 2 results with contextual notes – to be read in conjunction with DfE published results https://www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk/school/137498
The Year 11 cohort who sat GCSEs during the summer 2015 session at the Maharishi School consisted of 15 pupils with 7 of those pupils recognised as needing Individual Educational Programmes (IEPs) and who were awarded ‘Special Arrangements’ by the examination boards. 15 pupils undertook GCSE examinations, each pupil therefore contributed almost 7% to each category.
Due to the DfE Discounting Rules (https://www.raiseonline.org/OpenDocument.aspx? document=387), one pupil who gained grade B in English but was unable to sit the English Literature examination, did not have their grade B in English counted. The figures below show the actual percentages with the DfE published figures (which do not recognise the pupil’s grade in English) shown in brackets.
Of the 15 pupils who sat GCSE examinations in 2015, 6 pupils started at the school in September or January of Year 9, with 3 starting in Year 8.
When all the examinations of the 2015 cohort are analysed the results are as follows:
|GCSE and equivalent achievements of pupils at the end of Key Stage 4||Including
|% Achieving 5+ GCSEs at grade A*-C (or equivalent)
including English and Mathematics
|% Achieving A*-C GCSE in English and Maths||47
|% Achieving 5+ GCSEs at grade A*-C (or equivalent)||53
