“At NAE we aim to help students reach their full potential and equip them with the skills and mind-set to thrive in a changing world. Congratulations are due not only to our students, but also to our dedicated, world-leading teaching staff who have helped contribute to these tremendous results.”
A total of 1269 students sat the IB Diploma examination this year, up 10 per cent over last year. This increase reflects Nord Anglia Education’s rapid global growth and the enhanced appetite from parents for the programme.
The highest performing school within the Nord Anglia Education network was the British International School Shanghai, Puxi, which achieved an average diploma score of 36.5. This was closely followed by Nord Anglia International School Dubai with an average score of 36.4 and the British International School, Ho Chi Minh City, with an average score of 35.5.
“I’m delighted to see Nord Anglia International School Dubai achieve such a high average diploma score of 36.4 in its very first year of offering the diploma at the graduate level,” Mr Fitzmaurice said.
As a testament to the Nord Anglia difference in education, a total of four students achieved a perfect score of 45 this year.
Christian Contreras from the British School Warsaw, Lorcan Moore from the British International School of Houston, Michael Tang from The Village School and Oliver Cohen from the British International School of Chicago, South Loop all achieved perfect scores.
