Thirteen students (42%) gained 34 or more points. Four students (13%) scored 41 or more and this is the largest percentage of students from any Windermere cohort to score this highly. Edward Lavender scored 45, Rosie Hoggmascall scored 43 and Stanislaw Biber and Jessica Lawrence both scored 41. Edward scored within the top 0.25% of students worldwide with a perfect score of six level 7s and AA in his biology Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge; Rosie scored within the top 1.66% and Stanislaw and Jessica within the top 4.43%.
All three students with Oxbridge offers have secured their places, giving the School a 100% Oxbridge acceptance this year, and this is the first time this has happened.
Confirmation of university offers is not available for all students, but about a fifth are applying overseas with their actual results and almost two-thirds have immediately obtained either their first or second choice university.
Three of our four daughters have been boarders at the Senior School following our unexpected move to Hong Kong in 2012. One moved back to board at Windermere following two years in Hong Kong and our youngest can't wait to follow in her footsteps and return as an overseas boarder into Year 9. We cannot fault the standard of education and care which the girls have enjoyed throughout their Windermere journeys. In particular, we love the location - and the way in which the Lake District becomes part of the curriculum - and the international flavour of the Senior School.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
