Students Jumping for Joy at IB results

30 Sep 2013

Louise Cherrill (pictured) was delighted to receive the news that she had achieved 42 points in her International Baccalaureate (IBDP) last week. Her fantastic results have secured her place at Oxford to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE). Tom Rojas (also pictured) achieved 41 points and will be going to Oxford to study History.

Continuing and building on the success of previous years, students at Leighton Park again secured a 100% pass rate. With a pass mark of 24 points out of a maximum of 45, Leighton Park students achieved an average of 32 points, surpassing the world average of 29. An impressive number of students also gained the bilingual diploma.

Director of Studies and IBDP coordinator at Leighton Park, Karen Gracie-Langrick commented, “It has been another year of fantastic results for our International Baccalaureate students. Whilst the IB is a demanding course, it is well-suited to students of a range of abilities and is an excellent preparation for higher education. As an internationally recognised qualification it is of benefit to candidates who choose to apply for university and jobs overseas.”

Leighton Park School offers Sixth Form students the opportunity to choose between studying A Levels and the IBDP. In addition, they offer a rigorous one-year Pre-Sixth Form course for students seeking an intensive programme of study prior to Sixth Form.
