Academic Success in the 2017/18 School Year

20 September 2018

  • ib
Each year, all of us here at The British International School Abu Dhabi make a concerted effort to Be Ambitious about our what our students can achieve. This includes nurturing individual aspirations, going beyond what’s expected and encouraging global mindedness. Even more fundamentally, of course, is inspiring academic success.
With that in mind, we are thrilled to share that Nord Anglia Education has had its absolute best year ever in terms of academic results across our network of schools in the 2017/18 year.
We encourage you to have a look at the following articles highlighting our group’s 2017/18 results and join in the celebration with us:
1) Academic results a testament to the Nord Anglia difference
NAE CEO Andrew Fitzmaurice shares his thoughts on the 2017/18 academic results, including IB, I/GCSE, AP and other curricula.
An in-depth look at our I/GCSE scores. An astounding 50 per cent of our students attained grades A*, A (or equivalent) in the I/GCSEs, two and half times the 2018 UK average of 20.5 per cent. 
3) The curricula that carried the day
A look at some standout schools that excelled in our various offered curricula.
At The British International School Abu Dhabi, our 2018 graduating students achieved a 100% IB Diploma pass rate which is not only above the world average of 79% but is the highest in the school’s history. Our IGCSE students exceeded international and UK national averages, with 47% of all grades achieved being  A* or A.
We are incredibly proud of the efforts of all our students who helped make 2017/18 a record year of outstanding results. We can’t wait to see what will be achieved in the current academic school year.
