We are delighted with this year's International Baccalaureate and French Baccalaureate results. Along with fantastic individual performances, the graduating class as a whole achieved some notable successes. A quarter of the cohort gained 35 points or higher and 43% of students achieved bilingual diplomas, highlighting our students' amazing linguistic talents. The highest score achieved was a very impressive 43 which secured one of our students a place at Cambridge University.
100% pass rate for our French Baccalaureate students! They have also impressed us with their determination and great results on one of the more challenging academic programmes in the world: 20% achieved Mentions and again, the cohort performed particularly strongly in world languages.
