Congratulations to our IB2 students, who are celebrating record exam results today, which have secured their entry to some of the country’s top universities, including the University of Cambridge, Imperial College London, UCL, Bristol and York.
This year, 50% of Westbourne students achieved over 40 points (the equivalent of 4 A*s at A Level), with 85% attaining 7/6 (A*/A equivalent), 96.8% 7-5 (A*-B).
Westbourne’s average IB Point score of 39 places the school within the top 25 IB schools worldwide.* 38 IB points is the minimum entry-level to Oxbridge.
The outstanding results follow more than a year of uncertainty for our students, who have persevered with their studies throughout two national lockdowns and subsequent school closures, learning remotely under unprecedented levels of pressure.
The IB sees pupils study a broad range of subjects, as well as papers in the Theory of Knowledge and a challenging, research-based Extended Essay. It produces scientists who read classical literature; humanities students who understand science and mathematical investigation; and language students who have an appreciation of culture and science.
The record results today – which rank us in the top 25 IB schools in the world – are testament to the hard work, resilience, determination and sheer brilliance of our Sixth Form students, of whom we are all immensely proud.
A huge well done to every one of you, and to all of our wonderful teachers for all your support and guidance.
