Windermere School’s best ever results for Year 13
10 August 2021
As thousands of teenagers across the UK receive their A-level results today, Windermere School’s Year 13 average score was the equivalent of A*AA at A level in their IB results.
The 2021 school average IB Diploma score of 36 points is the best result at the school’s history and corresponds to A*AA. The scores earned Windermere students a place in the top 12 per cent of the world’s IB candidates. Local candidate Grace King achieved 45 points, the maximum that can be awarded, which is equivalent to five A*s at A-level. This incredible achievement places Grace in the top one per cent of candidates around the world. 36 per cent of pupils achieved 40 points or more, the same as 4A*s at A-level. Jack Keane scored 44 points, equivalent to 4A*and 1 A at A-level, while Emmie Annand, Luey Machell, Rachael Aylmore and William Turner scored the equivalent to 3A*and 2As with 43 points.
Executive Headmaster Mr Peter Hogan said: “Windermere School is rightly able to place itself among the top IB schools in the UK following these results. The IB prepares students for success at university by encouraging breadth and independent thought. I am delighted by the world class achievements of Year 13 and their teachers who have all shown incredible motivation and resilience during these challenging times.”
Windermere School is an award-winning International Baccalaureate institution and the results for the Class of 2021 were released in early July. The International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP) is highly sought after by leading universities across the world and Sixth Form pupils at Windermere School study the course as an alternative to A-levels.
