As reported in August 2007, students at the Maharishi School in England were delighted to find that they had all achieved five or more passes at grade C or above. In fact, all of the passes were grade C or above compared with a national average of 63%. Even more astonishing is that almost 66% of the passes were at the highest grades of A or A*, this is over three times the national figure of 19.5%.

In 2006 all pupils gained five or more passes at grades A-C and 58% of the passes were at the highest grade of A or A*.

One student was sent a letter of congratulation by the Director General of the Assessment and Qualification Alliance, because in GCSE English Literature she achieved one of the top five marks in the country (out of a total entrance of 362,438 pupils nationwide).

Since the Maharishi School started entering pupils for GCSE examinations in 1990, 89% of students have achieved five passes at Grade C or higher (the national average is 44.9 %). 38.5% of passes have been at grade A or A* compared to a national average of 13.8% for the same period.

This is a remarkable achievement, given that the Maharishi School does not select pupils on the basis of academic ability.

Experienced educators have commented on the high standard of work produced in the school. Her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools (HMI), on behalf of OFSTED (Office for Standards in Education), have commented favourably on all aspects of the school; in particular, the quality of the tasks presented to the pupils by the teachers, the pupils' maturity and level of expression, and the expectation of high standards based upon the sound principles of the school.

Foyles Young Poets of the Year Award 2007:
The latest in a long line of Maharishi School students to be a winner in this competition, Emily Mercer was one of the 15 winners (out of an entrance of 10,000) for 2007.

'All Write' competition 2007:
Alice Renwick and Ruby Lees (year 11) and Lillah Kennedy, Jenny Hayward, and Francis King-Smith from year 11, 2006, won awards.

'...Research from Taiwan recently published in the scientific journal Intelligence found that the ''intelligence and creativity of students was boosted by TM''.'—Daily Mail, London.
