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 34 students complete the IB, achieving a 100% pass rate. The twenty-six IB Diploma candidates achieved a mean score of 33.9 points, the second best result the school has seen in the past eleven years. Put into context, the IB Diploma mean world average in 2018 was 29.8.

The students also secured the school’s second best ever result in the Core, an additional element to the main subjects which is made up of an extended essay of around 4,000 words; the theory of knowledge, which encourages critical thinking; and Creativity, Action, Service (CAS), which encourages students to get involved in a range of activities alongside their academic studies. The mean Core score was 1.88 (out of 3), exceeding the world average in 2018 by 0.66 points.

Windermere School Students IB Results 2019A further eight students followed the IB Career-related programme, and these results have been the school’s best set of results to date. The IB Career Related Certificate has been designed for career-orientated students, offering them the opportunity to gain a certificate which combines practical and academic skills. All students who took the IB Careers programme obtained at least one distinction, while three students obtained double starred distinctions.
