Magdalen College School is unashamedly academic. Pupils take ten (i)GCSEs in upper-fifth Form, and at least four A Levels in the sixth-form. In 2019, 96% of pupils achieved A*-B grades at A-level.
Games & The Arts
Sports, music, art and drama facilities are of an extremely high-standard, and pupils have access to professional coaches. Scholarships are available. The school is the founder and lead sponsor of Oxford Festival of the Arts, a fortnight of cultural events held at the end of each summer term (www.artsfestivaloxford.org).
MCS has a dedicated pastoral care team, as well as a Medical Centre housing three full-time medical professionals and two part-time resident councillors.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
We achieve so highly not in spite of the breadth of extra-curricular activities on offer, but because of them.
- Former pupils include a Nobel Prize laureate, a Hollywood film director and a saint!
- 1 in 10 pupils receive a Bursary; MCS is committed to ensuring the brightest pupils can attend, no matter their personal circumstances
- There are over 50 clubs and societies on offer to pupils at lunchtimes and after school, from Chess to Drone Club
- 3 pupils achieved a staggering 5 A* grades at A Level in 2019
