Results of the IB Diploma were announced on Saturday 5 July. Every one of the school's thirty two candidates successfully passed the Diploma, with three of our students achieving 40 or more points*, which is recognised globally as the mark of real excellence.
The successful candidates will now go onto study an impressive range of courses at some of the top universities in the world, including: King's College London, London School of Economics and Political Science, The University of Hong Kong, University College Zealand, University of York, University of California (Los Angeles), Westminster College, Korea University (Seoul) and The University of Liverpool.
The IB is considered the gold standard of pre-university qualifications, highly regarded by university admissions tutors around the world. Currently there are more than 1,200,000 Diploma Programme students at over 3,850 schools in 141 countries across the world.
Simon Miller, Head of Sixth Form commented: "We are absolutely delighted with this year's results. The overwhelming majority of students were able to far exceed their early predictions, in some cases by as many as six or seven marks.”
Garry Russell, Head of Secondary, commented: “These are a fantastic set of world-class results. They reflect the incredible dedication of our students and their wonderful teachers. Every single student has exceeded 24 points, with many gaining 35+. The school has raised the bar even higher and set the standard for others to follow. Our students can now move on to some of the world's best universities armed not only with the positive attitude and skills for which Regents is famous, but also with outstanding qualifications.”
*40 points equate to 611 UCAS tariff points equivalent to more than four A*’s at A-Level (560 UCAS tariff points).
