IB Students of 2017 Make History!

As the Anglo European School enters its 40th year as an IB World School it celebrated another year of impressive International Baccalaureate results which in the Diploma Programme has led to a cohort average of 33 points, compared to the global average of 30 points. For the first time in the recent history of delivering the Diploma Programme we are very proud to announce that we have a student, Katharine Beck, who has achieved the elusive 45 maximum points and a second student Andrei Lovin, on 43 points. Though international statistics haven’t been finalised for this year, if we look at previous averages, a score of 43 would put a student into the top 2% of IB results globally – an incredible achievement.

Katharine will now go on to study Medicine at Oxford whilst Andrei intends to read Economics at Leeds. Many students are continuing to Russell Group universities while others take time out with gap years, whatever the case, results this early give our students plenty of time to reflect and to consider how to best use their time this summer with many taking up voluntary posts and dedicating some time to travel.

The IBCP is the newest addition to the IB’s continuum of education and Anglo European was the first school in the country to launch it in 2010. It is designed for students wishing to engage in career-related learning while gaining transferable skills sought after by employers. IBCP students have received their results for the DP subjects studied within the CP and 100% of the cohort have achieved their Careers Programme Qualification. Now these students await A Level results in August to finalise their next step plans.

They join a community of nearly 1,500,000 IB graduates in 136 countries across the world. The number of students receiving their diplomas in the UK this year is almost 5,000.

“I am hugely proud of what these students have achieved, they have shown impressive commitment to their studies and dug deep when getting through the workload seemed impossible. In particular I would like to extend praise to students who have shown exceptional independence, resilience and self -motivation in the last two years. I must also give thanks to those colleagues who work so hard in a hugely pressurised profession, to go above and beyond what is expected to support our students.”

Marie-Louise Brown – IB Curriculum Manager

“Independent research confirms that the IB improves students’ academic achievement, as well as their probability of high school graduation and college enrolment, and it is clear that our students are better prepared to succeed in post-secondary settings.

“And, perhaps more importantly, they’re better prepared to contribute in helping to make the world a better place.”

Dr Siva Kumari, IB Director General.
