  • 28% of all grades were A*
  • 70% of all grades were A* or A

This is a stellar set of results for our students and an enormous credit to all involved!

Tricia Kelleher, Principal said, "It is the variety of destinations that really stands out for me. As well as the lawyers and medics, historians and anthropologists, we have a growing number opting for acclaimed Liberal Arts courses in the UK or abroad including at Princeton, USA. To have students with such contrasting futures ahead of them, be it Computer Science at Cambridge or History of Art at the Courtauld or even at the world-renowned Translation and Interpretation degree at the University of Geneva, it is ever more important that the individual students’ stories are not lost in any set of results."

International baccalaureate 2016 

Headline figures

  • Average score of 40 points, placing us in the top IB schools in the UK for the seventh consecutive year
  • Students in the top 5% globally 

Students are celebrating another excellent set of results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma. A score of 40 points is equivalent to almost four A* grades at A Level plus an additional A in AS level.

We have taught the IB since 2008 and have twice been awarded the Sunday Times IB School of the Year.

Stuart Jack, Head of 6th Form, said “this is another set of superb and well-deserved results – students and staff will be delighted. One of the advantages of the IB system is receiving the results so early in the summer – it's a great way to start the holiday period."

Students can now look forward to the university courses they have worked so hard to access. A few of these courses are: Geography, History, Psychology and Behavioural Studies at Cambridge, Electrical Engineering at Imperial, Psychology and Philosophy at Oxford, Arts and Sciences at UCL, Dentistry at KCL and Liverpool and Liberal Arts at Utrecht.

One student fulfilled the requirements of the prestigious Bilingual Diploma in English and Russian, an exceptional achievement.

"Every IB student has their own story to tell. They are more than equipped for the next stage in their journey and we are very proud of their achievements." Tricia Kelleher, Principal.

A level 2014 

Initial results figures

  • A*: 36.5%
  • A*-A: 73%
  • A*-B: 96%
  • Students scoring 3 or more A* grades 19.35%

Tricia Kelleher, Principal, said, “All credit goes to the students for these fantastic results. With our International Baccalaureate results already out from July, we know they all have an exciting future ahead of them.”

Of particular note is that 36.5% of all grades were A*. This is 5% up on last year and in the context of national comments that the very top grades would be lower this year.

Combined with our IB results (from July) and using the UCAS tariff points system, our students have an average of A*, A*, A* plus a further A grade at AS Level.

Students will be studying a diverse range of university courses from medicine, veterinary science and law to Spanish & Arabic and Archaeology & Anthropology. Two students will be going to the USA, to Carleton College, Minnesota and to New York University.

International baccalaureate 2014
 
Students are celebrating another excellent set of results in the IB Diploma, announced on 6 July 2014. The average score per student is 40 points, out of a total of 45, which will place the Stephen Perse Foundation in the top group of IB schools in the UK for the fifth consecutive year.

This is equivalent to almost 4 A Levels at A*A*A*A* plus an additional A in AS level.

All our IB students holding university places now have confirmation that they have secured a place of their choice. A few of these courses are: Veterinary Science at Cambridge, Law at Durham, English and Russian & History at Oxford, European Studies at UCL, Art Foundation in Paris and Liberal Arts at Carleton College, Minnesota, USA.

Our IB students are known for their eclectic abilities and this year's cohort have been no less remarkable. One student picked up a 4th modern language in French for example, to complement his Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese and English. Another enjoyed writing an extended essay entitled, 'How long will it take to reach Mars?' Others have written on the influence of indigenous culture on Gauguin's art, songs and poems in the Lord of the Rings, equine grazing patterns, and even school fees and the impact on 6th Form education - just to name a few! This is aside from their many endeavours within the school community and beyond.

Two students scored a remarkable 44 points, one of whom securing over 90% in 4 of her 6 subjects, including a staggering 97% in Geography. The other scooped a coveted 'Level 7' (the highest grade) in Maths HL. All our students passed the Diploma.

"Every IB student has their own story to tell. They are more than equipped for the next stage in their journey and we are very proud of their achievements." Tricia Kelleher, Principal.

The IB is a complete qualification - it equips students not only for the demands of their immediate university courses at world-class institutions, but also for life ahead in our dynamically evolving world. Congratulations to all involved!"
