GCSE Results 2018 Students at the International School of Moscow are celebrating another excellent set of (I)GCSE results for 2018. Screen Shot 20180912 at 142449

This year, 97% of all grades received by students at The international School of Moscow were between A* and C, with 71% of grades being either A* or A and 87% of grades being between A* and B. Using the standard United Kingdom measure of the percentage number of students who achieved at least five (I)GCSE’s, including English and Maths graded between A* and C, this figure rises to 100%. Even more pleasing is the fact that The International School of Moscow was the only school within the whole of Nord Anglia Education that made multiple student entries where every Year 11 student attained five A* to C grades (including English and Mathematics.)


These results compare very favourably to the NAE global (I)GCSE Results, which are as follows:

  • 50% of all I/GCSE grades achieved by NAE students were A* or A (or equivalent). This is two and a half times the 2018 UK average of 20.5%.
  • Nearly 85% of NAE students achieved five or more A* to C grades, including English and Maths.
  • 90.2% of students’ grades were A* to C (or equivalent). This is 23% higher than the UK average of 66.9%.


Reflecting on ISM’s achievements, Principal, Paul Keach commented: “I am extremely proud of our students’ (I)GCSE examination results. In partnership with our teaching team, our students have worked exceptionally hard in order to attain such pleasing grades. Our results put us amongst the very best international schools in the world. I congratulate our Year 11 students on their magnificent achievements.”


The International School of Moscow’s (I)GCSE results would place the school firmly into the Top 100 of UK independent schools for 2018 and into the Top 20 International Schools worldwide.


Head of Upper Campus and Secondary School Dean Moore added “I am, of course, delighted by these results. They reflect the hard work of everyone involved in our school, the students, their parents and our dedicated staff. I want to thank everyone involved for their contribution to this success.”


ISM’s 2018 GCSE results are even better than those of 2017, reflecting the upwards trajectory of The International School of Moscow.
