We are immensely proud of our Year 13 students who are celebrating an exceptional set of results in this year’s IB Diploma examinations.
Twenty-one students achieved the prestigious Bilingual Diploma, more than half of the cohort, and a good number of students attained a points total of 40 or more. One student was placed in the top 5% of performers worldwide.
To provide context, a score of 38 or more is the equivalent to five A grades at A Level.
Our IB students are now going onto many of the world’s leading universities. UK destinations within the Russell Group include Edinburgh, St Andrews, Newcastle and York, and continental destinations include leading institutions such as Bocconi and IE.
Dr Daniel Coughlan, the Acting Deputy Head (Academic), commented: “The IB programme at Worth is tremendously valued and academic departments are committed to it as an excellent educational experience. It is particularly pleasing to see impressive sets of results, such as all 16 English B Higher Level students achieving a 6 or higher, and those taking the Spanish B course achieving an average grade of 6.3. We are committed to all pupils fulfilling their academic potential and there are success stories across every discipline. The students are rightly proud of their achievements.”
Mr Matthew Doggett, Assistant Head (Sixth Form), said: “Congratulations to this year’s IDBP candidates on a strong set of examination results. There are some really strong grades here, with students off to continue their studies at top universities, in the UK, Europe and North America.”
