IB Examination Results - International Baccalaureate Diploma

As an academically non-selective school, we were delighted to be named The Sunday Times International Baccalaureate School of the Year. This followed the record breaking results of the past academic year, building on the success of previous years. We pride ourselves on the extra support we provide to help you meet and, wherever possible, exceed your expectations. Twenty-four points are needed to pass the International Baccalaureate, provided various other criteria are fulfilled, and some students with modest GCSE scores have gone on to achieve highly within the Diploma.

Over the past seven years we have seen a fluctuation of results, depending on our student body at the time. However, results are well above the world averages and our Sixth Form results are second to an academically selective school in the county, and rank highly in the NW region.
