Once again, I offer my warm congratulations to our students and my heartfelt gratitude to teachers and parents alike in supporting them in this part of their educational journey. We are a close-knit school community and I look forward to hearing about the progress of students in their next steps – at university or on their gap year programmes. (For the first time this year, six of our students will be taking part in Nord Anglia’s own gap year programme in China). As well as their academic success, it is encouraging to know that tomorrow’s leaders – our students – are internationally-minded, responsible, thoughtful and kind. These super exam results provide passports to universities, but their strength of character will be the key to success throughout their lives.
This year, Nord Anglia students around the world achieved an average IB Diploma score of 36.2. This marks the eighth consecutive year that Nord Anglia schools have surpassed global average scores. This year’s record results will see Nord Anglia’s students attend their first-choice universities, including Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard, MIT, and Stanford.
Andrew Fitzmaurice, Chief Executive Officer, Nord Anglia Education, said: “We are immensely proud of our IB students’ outstanding achievements, particularly in a year where the pandemic created significant challenges. Theirimpressive results are of great credit to their resilience and hard work and pave the way for them to attend the world’s top universities. This year’s results are also testament to the dedication, creativity and inspiration of our talented teachers who have ensured our students excel in their learning.”
Finally, I am sure that our parents and teachers will be very pleased for our Year 13 students, and I would like to thank them all on our students’ behalf for the support, care and guidance that has helped them to be so successful. Many congratulations to all our graduates and our best wishes to them all in the year ahead.
