Bromsgrove School among top performers for IB resultsPosted on 8th Sep 2017 in School News, Diploma Programme Tweet
Bromsgrove School has just been announced as one of the Top IB Schools (Large Cohort), ranked at number 10 in the list. This follows the School’s IB results this summer, with an average score of 39.1 points.
Speaking about Bromsgrove School’s International Baccalaureate results, the Director of the IB Programme Dr Michael Thompson said: "We are absolutely delighted by the average of 39.1 which places us amongst the very top IB schools in the country. This is a demanding course and students and teachers have once again excelled."
The Diploma is scored from a maximum of 45 points, with all pupils required to study a variety of subjects including Maths, English, a language, a humanities subject, an arts subject and a science, as well as undertaking independent in-depth research for an extended essay, a Theory of Knowledge course and a non-academic element of Creativity, Activity or Service.
Every student entered gained their Diploma and half of them received formal recognition of their bilingualism. More than two-fifths of our pupils scored 40 points or more with the ‘average’ candidate scoring the equivalent of more than four A* grades at A Level.
The overwhelming majority of this year’s cohort will begin their undergraduate studies at prestigious Russell Group universities such as St Andrews, UCL, Imperial and KCL, but a number are looking forward to studying abroad at Chicago, NYU, Abu Dhabi and the University of British Colombia.
