Many of our students join us with English as a second language, at varying levels of proficiency, and the progress that these students make during the time that they are with us is a testament to not only their hard work, but the hard work and skill of the staff who support them academically and pastorally.
Our graduating students study the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and our results are consistently above the Global Average Point Score. 2018/9 was no exception to this with our Average Point Score of 31. In addition to this impressive overall performance, many of our students had notable personal successes which reflected their determination and capabilities as learners – three of our students scored 39 or 40 points out of a possible 45, a feat only a small percentage of IBDP students worldwide ever obtain. Our students rise to the demands of this challenging qualification and make significant progress, both academically and personally.
The results mean that our students will be able to go to their first-choice university where many of them have already received unconditional offers. Our students have been accepted to top universities on four continents to study disciplines ranging from architecture to economics, engineering to medicine, and many more. Amid the fantastic results, fourteen students earned prestigious bilingual diplomas studying courses in Croatian, Korean, Thai, Chinese, German, Hindi and Russian. We also had incredible scores of 39 and 40 points for three students. This is the level required to gain admission to the world’s elite universities such as Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Stanford.
Academic success is also evident at iGCSE with 34% of our students achieving A* to A (7-9) grades in 2018/19, the UK averaged 21%. Overall 83% of Regents students passed with A* to C grades. As with IBDP, there were many notable individual successes: students achieving A and A* grades in all subjects and, equally as significant, students who achieve pass grades through determination, grit and resilience.
Many of our students join us at the start of Year 10 as the iGCSE courses begin, and our staff support each and every learner to achieve the best that they can. We set challenging targets, have high expectations of all, and encourage our students to be ambitious in every respect.
