Sherborne Girls achieve best ever IB results
This year the school is celebrating the best IB results ever recorded, with an impressive average point score of 37 points (the equivalent to three A*s and one A grades at A level). 38% of the cohort achieved 40 points or more out of a possible 45 – putting them into the top 5% of IB students worldwide.
Sherborne Girls Eleanor Roda and Charlotte McNair Scott achieved the school’s top results with 43 points each - Eleanor will now read Music at Oxford and Lottie will read History at King’s College London. Alice Storrie achieved 42 and will study Medicine at University College London. Amelia Rogers scored 41 and will read History at University College London and Isabella Gardner scored 40 and will read International Relations/Liberal Arts at King’s College London.
Jenny Dwyer, Headmistress at the School said, “We are once again absolutely delighted by the results of our IB students and thrilled to see some very high scores, which are a real credit to the girls’ hard work and commitment. It is particularly pleasing to see how the consistency of our students’ performance in the IB over the years is ensuring that our girls get good offers at great universities. We send our congratulations to students, our thanks to staff, and we look forward to following the girls’ accomplishments at university and beyond.”
The IB has been running at Sherborne Girls since 2006 and offers an alternative route to traditional AS/A Levels, which the school also offers. It is a highly challenging programme and requires students to study six subjects, which include English, Maths, a Science, a Humanities subject, a Language and an Art subject, as well as a core of activity which includes an Extended Essay and a Creativity, Action and Service module.
