ICS IB Diploma Programme students once again exceed global averages

Our students achieve more than they may have thought possible. We believe there is no limit to what students can achieve socially, personally and academically. This year, our students’ academic results reflect our shared commitment to excellence in this area.

Our entire school community is proud to share our students at ICS achieved exceptional results in this year’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). 

For the 2020/21 academic school year, ICS students achieved a pass rate of 100%. 83 candidates entered for the full Diploma with an Average Diploma Score of 37 out of 45 points. This compares very favourably with the global average of 33 points. In addition, 26% of these passing Diplomas were on or above the 40 point mark with the highest score being 45 points. This result also showcases the difference that Nord Anglia Education schools bring to students’ academic results

Head of Secondary Mr Barry Hughes said, “In offering our congratulations it is important to note that ICS is an open entry school where the IB Diploma is offered in Grades 11 and 12. The vast majority of our students take this very demanding IB programme where it is only available as an option in many schools. The performance of our students was very pleasing, with many remarkable individual accomplishments at all levels of the Diploma Score spectrum. These results are a testament to the hard work of both teachers and students as well as the strength of the IB Diploma programme at ICS”.

We are delighted to announce that 22 students from our school achieved 40 points and above. This is the level of attainment required to gain admission to the world's elite universities, such as Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Stanford. In addition, we would like to highlight how Natasha Huibers received a perfect score of 45 points!

After an anxious wait, I feel both relieved and gratified by my results. It has definitely been a tough past two years, but all the stress and hard work finally feel worth it. I am very honoured to be able to represent ICS in this way.
Of course, I would not have been able to accomplish this without the support of my teachers, and am extremely grateful for all of their time, patience and guidance. I would like to give them a special thank you for being such an important part of this journey and for ultimately helping me reach this achievement. I think that each and every one of us of the graduating class of 2021 has a lot to be proud of, and I feel very privileged to have been part of this cohort. Natasha Huibers

All of us here at ICS would also like to congratulate our graduating seniors. These students have put in incredible hard work over the years, and we can’t wait to see what they do in the future.

We would also like to commend our teachers for their outstanding work and dedication. Their commitment to our students and school is what drives these exceptional academic results.

A huge congratulations to all our graduates and IBDP achievers for a job well done!
