Below is an analysis of the 2018 results for GCSE and KS2. Whilst we are very proud of our pupils’ efforts, here 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 99% of parents report that their child is happy at our school.
GCSE Results (provisional data released October 2018) and Destinations
This year we had two cohorts of pupils sitting GCSE examinations: as well as our year 11 GCSE cohort, 12 pupils from year 10 took GCSE photography which they completed after only one year of study. Of the 12 pupils who took this extra-curricular qualification, 10 gained the new grade 9 (which is equivalent to A**) and 2 gained grade 7 (equivalent to grade A). We are very proud of our pupils’ efforts and these exceptional GCSE outcomes.
In 2018, the year 11 GCSE cohort consisted of only 8 pupils and, as always, our small numbers make it difficult to compare to the national picture. All of our classes are mixed ability therefore outcomes vary accordingly. Please see the grid below for details of the number of pupils achieving each grade in the 2018 cohort:

(equivalent to low C/high D)
This past year has seen 100% of our graduates move on to further education.
We would like to express our continued thanks to the staff, parents and governors for their unwavering support in guiding our pupils towards the fulfillment of their ambitions and we wish our Y11 leavers all the very best for the future.
Key Stage 2 Results 2018 (provisional data released October 2018)
Congratulations to our former year 6 pupils who took their SATs in May 2018. Our pupils worked incredibly hard throughout the year and their efforts paid off. More importantly, however, our year 6 pupils had a fun and active year; continuing to access their creative curriculum whilst also preparing for the SATs ahead.
78% of pupils achieved the expected standard in reading compared with a national average of 75%.
72% of pupils achieved the expected standard in maths compared with a national average of 74%.
83% of pupils achieved the expected standard in writing compared with a national average of 78%.
67% of pupils achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined compared with 64% nationally.
Our reading progress score is +0.6; writing progress is -1.27 and maths is -3.28. Reading and writing are consistent with average and although maths is below average, it is within the floor standard.
We would like to express our thanks to staff, parents and governors for their support in guiding our pupils towards achieving their potential at the end of their primary school career. Our year 6 cohort has now joined us at the secondary phase. We wish them a happy, settled and creative experience as secondary phase pupils.
