The Manchester Grammar School is celebrating another year of outstanding examination results for its sixth form pupils.

More than a third of all grades (36%) were at the coveted A* level, a record for MGS; 71% of all grades were A* or A, and 91% of grades were A*, A or B.

There were many exceptional individual performances – 19 pupils were awarded A* grades in all their subjects, six of these pupils achieved four A* grades, a tremendous achievement.  76 boys achieved a clean sweep of A* and A grades.

The School’s High Master, Dr Martin Boulton, said, “This year’s results are exceptional and I am absolutely delighted that the talent, hard work and dedication of our boys has been rewarded.

“For more than a third of all A-level grades to be A*s, and 91% of all grades at A*-B level, is fantastic, and once again places The Manchester Grammar School in a very select number of schools nationally.”
