We believe there is no limit to what our students can achieve socially, personally and academically.  BSB students’ academic results consistently reflect our shared commitment to excellence in this area.

Our entire school community is proud to share that our students at The British School of Beijing (BSB) Shunyi have consistently achieved excellent results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

  • The overall pass rate has now grown for the last three consecutive years at BSB reaching the 96% pass rate that we had this year, this is substantially higher that the 79% global pass rate.  
  • The global average for the IB Diploma was 29.29 points and 71% of the students at BSB Shunyi surpassed this, with scores ranging from 30-41 and averaging 34.7, significantly higher than the global average. We are particularly proud of the fact that when we reviewed individual students IBDP results, students at BSB have achieved better than expected when compared with externally bench marked predictions. 
  • Our average BSB IBDP score for the past years since we offered the programme remains excellent at 33.5, surpassing the global average score by 13.5%. BSB students’ results have consistently exceeded the global average score each year.
  • 54% percentage of BSB students achieved the Bilingual Diploma, an all time high for BSB. This is 32% higher than the global average of 22% and is reflective of the truly international nature of BSB and demonstrates why a BSB education better prepares our students to be global citizens. 

"Virtually all our students passed the diploma and demonstrates the individualized approach we take to ensure each one achieves to their potential and secures their place at the top universities around the world. Our students move onto the next steps in their education well prepared to make the most of every opportunity available to them. I wish them all the very best of luck.” said Mr. Thornhill.

“This year’s results powerfully show how our students benefit from world-leading teachers who go beyond traditional education to inspire them toward success,” he said. “I’m proud of what our IB-offering schools have achieved this academic year and wish our graduating seniors a fantastic summer as they begin preparing for life after leaving their Nord Anglia school.”

IBDP, is a two-year education programme for students age 16-19. The programme is a widely accepted and recognised qualification for entry into higher education and universities worldwide.

All of us here at BSB Shunyi would also like to congratulate our graduating seniors from the 2018/2019 academic year. These students have put in incredible hard work over the years and we can’t wait to see what they do in the future.

BSB supports its students to achieve more than they may have thought possible, so a huge congratulations to all our graduates and IBDP achievers for a job well done!
