This is the second year our pupils have completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
All pupils who were entered for all six subjects this summer achieved the Diploma by successfully completing all six subject disciplines and the core components of the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge and Creativity, Action & Service.
The maximum possible a candidate can score is 45 points, which is secured by a tiny percentage of candidates worldwide.

This year for the first time we had three pupils study and achieve a bilingual diploma. This means that they were able to study advanced literature as a native speaker in two different languages.
These figures reflect a small but able cohort and also the professionalism and enthusiasm of staff who have undertaken several years of research, implementation and staff training to ensure a successful second set of results.
