Whitgift’s IB results break school records as Upper 6th Form students celebrate success.
Congratulations are due to Whitgift’s Upper Sixth Form International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma graduates, whose results on 6 July broke many School records. The average points total, of 41 points, is the highest ever at the School, and two thirds of the cohort scored 40 points or more, putting them in the top 5% of candidates worldwide. Six students scored 44 points, a feat only achieved by the top 1%.
Almost all the boys have already confirmed their first-choice university places at top Russell Group universities and all our Oxbridge candidates have successfully achieved their offers.
‘Both staff and students are thrilled with these results, the fruit of two years’ hard work, and the joy of seeing so many smiling faces whose university ambitions have now been fulfilled made this a special day for all of us,’ said Mr Paul Dinnen, outgoing Head of International Baccalaureate. ‘Impressive as they are, the outcome of the IB Diploma can never be summed up in mere numbers. The strength and depth of character which the programme cultivates will see these young men succeed far beyond their time at university. It has been a privilege to work with such a talented and committed group, and I wish them all the brightest of futures.’
