Sixth Form Examination Results

As an academically non-selective school, we were delighted to be named The Sunday Times International Baccalaureate School of the Year 2018.

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.

The past academic year saw 27 students completing the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP), and seven students completing the IB Career-related Programme (IBCP). The mean IB score for the Diploma Programme was 33.4, which is our 4th best result in the past 10 years and rises above the world average of 29.9 in 2017. Just under half of the cohort obtained 34 points or more, with four students taking their place on the School Honour’s Board, having secured 40 points or more.

Results for the IB Career-related Programme were particularly impressive; with two students achieving Double Distinction* in the Business BTEC course, and another student achieving Double Distinction* in the Music BTEC course. This grade is equivalent to achieving a A*A* grade at A level. The students who took the IB Career-Related Programme also enjoyed a 100% pass rate.

Almost three-quarters of the students achieved their university offers, with 53% securing their first choice university and a further 21% securing their second choice. The students also achieved some particularly impressive university placements.
