Magdalen College School
Magdalen College School is an independent day school in Oxford. It educates boys from seven to eighteen years old and also admits girls at 16+. The Sunday Times named it Independent School of the Year in 2004 and 2008, a feat that no other boys' or co-educational school has achieved before.
The school's examination results are consistently among the best. Over 90 per cent of its A-Level grades were an A or A* in 2013. Close to 95 per cent of GCSE grades were an A or A*. The year was also a record for Oxbridge entries with 22 off to Oxford and 25 heading to Cambridge. The remainder of its 124 leavers accepted places at universities such as Bristol and Durham.
Notable old boys include Skyfall director Sam Mendes and Blackwell's bookshop founder Sir Basil Blackwell.
