International Baccalaureate Diploma Success
Posted on: 7th July 2019
Hockerill students are today celebrating another outstanding set of results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. Our cohort of 125 Year 13 students from Hockerill Anglo-European College took the IB Diploma and have now received their results, achieving an average point score of 36, six points above the global average of 29.8. The prestigious bilingual diploma was awarded to 26% of the cohort, and the College’s pass rate was 98%.
Students are celebrating their achievements in a range of subject areas. Twenty four students (20%) gained 40 points or over – an accomplishment for less than ten percent of IB Diploma students globally and which is equivalent to an A level score of “A*, A*, A*, A* and A”.
Particular congratulations should go to Faye Crawford, Lilian Fanderl, Madeleine Feerick, Gareth James and Katherine Lewington who all achieved 44 points, as well as Rachel Bintley, Juliette Chapman, Benedict Miles, Kristian Peters, CY Siu (all on 43), plus Guala Avogardro Di Vigliano, Isabella Brereton, Chloe Coleman, Giorgio Curti, Martha Hoult, Harry Tomlinson and Jennifer Winship on 41 points, alongside Alex Abouharb, Eboni Aymer-Jeffrey, Oliver Dellow, Frederick Fossey-Warren, Karen Isaacs, Ella Pickering and Georgina Priest who all obtained 40 points.
Sarah Pearson, Joint Acting Principal at Hockerill said, “We are immensely proud of all our students and their examination results. The IB Diploma is a challenging two-year course, often considered the gold standard in Level 3 qualifications. Our students have worked hard and are extremely well-prepared for their next steps at university and beyond.”
Students from Hockerill are going on to study at a wide range of universities, mostly in the UK, but with some heading off as far as China to study. Students are predominantly going on to study at Russell Group universities and five students have won places at Oxford or Cambridge.
