Welcome from the Headteacher
Dear parents and carers
Thank you for showing interest in Magdalen College School for your child’s secondary education.
At Magdalen we are committed to providing a high quality of education for all of our students. We aim to motivate our students to develop a commitment to their work.
We aim to provide an excellent quality of education for all our students and this is exemplified through our recent successes in the GCSE examination results which are significantly above national average for several years and in which:
74% of students gained grades A*- C
71% of students gained grades A*- C including English and Maths
99% of students achieved A level success
Examination success is only a part of what we value at Magdalen: we believe in providing an all-round education and our enrichment activities, extra-curricular trips and foreign visits give opportunities for students to develop personally and to prepare them for their future lives. We offer an excellent level of pastoral support and our house system offers students opportunities for leadership as well as the chance to interact with students in a range of different year groups and contexts.
We hope that this prospectus will give you the information needed to make the right choices for your child’s next step.
I H Colling (Mr)
