Celebrating Success and Looking Ahead

02 September 2015

The start of term is always a time to look ahead to the many varied experiences that our students have to challenge them - through both our academic curriculum - and our exciting ECA programme. 

It is also an opportunity to reflect upon the successes of our graduating Year 11 and Year 13 students who achieved excellent results in August. 

The Year 13 class of 2015 achieved an average Diploma score of 35 points, compared with a global average of less than 30.  Katie White and Seungmin Hwang achieved near perfect scores of 44 in the IB Diploma Programme.  They were part of a larger group of fifteen students who achieved over 40 points in this prestigious qualification and I congratulate them upon their success. 

It is also delightful to be able to announce the success of all of our Year 11 students, 44% of all IGCSE grades achieved were A*-A.  Of particular note at GCSE level were Daniel Tafelski, achieving nine A* and two A grades; Kelly Kim and Yung Lo, each achieving nine A* and one A grade; Anne Zimmer, achieving five A* and five A grades; Meagan Tan, achieving six A* and three A grades; and Megan Edwards, achieving five A* and three A grades.  We will be celebrating the success of all of our IGCSE students with their families at a formal ceremony in the autumn term, but I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them across the wider school community.  IGCSE courses require consistent dedication and commitment and they have demonstrated these characteristics in abundance.

We also continue our warm welcome to parents and invite you to participate further in the life of the school.  In the Secondary School we operate a Secondary Room parent network.  This has been devised with two goals in mind - to further facilitate communication of a non-academic nature between the parents and the school, and to provide a framework for parents to meet and socialise with other parents in similar year groups.  If you would like to join us as the Room Parent representative for your student's form please let Cindy Liddiard, our coordinator, know via secondaryroomparents@bisspuxi.com" style="font-size: 1em; line-height: 1.5;" target="_blank">secondaryroomparents@bisspuxi.com.  She will be happy to provide further details.  Thank you to Isabella Zimmer for all her efforts in the last year and to Cindy for taking on this role moving forward.  Please support this excellent group.

And finally….. well done to the seventeen International Award students who travelled to Suzhou last weekend to cycle 80 kilometres, followed by kayaking the next day – an impressive and exciting experience in preparation for their IA Gold Adventurous Journey which begins next Tuesday.

Andrew Lancaster, Head of Secondary
