Outstanding IB results for Redmaids' High students

IMG_20220705_171712088_PORTRAITAfter a mixture of online learning, several lockdowns, and uncertainty through two of the most important years in their school life, earlier this term – and for the first time since 2019 - our International Baccalaureate (IB) students sat their final exams and eagerly awaited their results, which were released yesterday afternoon. 

 Grades were phenomenal across the board with an average score of 38, far outreaching the global average of 33.02. Eleanor, who studied English Literature, French, and Psychology at standard level and Spanish, Biology, and Maths at higher level achieved an astonishing score of 45, the top mark possible, attained by less than 1% of IB students worldwide. Eleanor will be studying Human Sciences at Durham University in September.  

 Former Head Girl Phoebe achieved an incredible score of 41 and will be studying Liberal Arts at Durham University and Maddie who also achieved 40 points will join The University of Edinburgh to read Archaeology and Anthropology.  

 Other students will be studying PPE, Liberal Arts, Economics and Politics, Nursing and Hospitality Management at a range of other institutions demonstrating how transferable and relevant the multi-disciplinary skills developed through studying the IB are, to a diverse range of courses.  

 The top grade of 7 was achieved by all who studied French, Global Politics, and Philosophy at standard level, and those who took higher level Spanish and History, and standard level Psychology and Biology achieved a 6 or 7. 

 IB Coordinator at Redmaids’ High, Pete Brealey said, “We are incredibly proud of what this cohort has achieved. The grades they’ve received reflect the dedication and hard work they have shown consistently through their IB studies, and we wish them all the very best for the future”. 

 The qualification, which is one of the two Sixth Form pathways available at Redmaids’ High, allows students to study a wider range of subjects concurrently, demonstrating a depth and breadth of knowledge. You can find out more about the IB in our blog.   

 We are so proud of our IB students; in the commitment they’ve shown to their studies over the last two years and in the way, they have embodied the spirit of the IB, as a collaborative and supportive global community.
