IB results day: an impressive range of courses and universities await the KES Class of 2023

Published on isbi School News dated Friday 7th of July 2023

IB Diploma students at King Edward’s School have secured places on a diverse range of subjects at an equally diverse and impressive range of universities.

With an average IB Diploma score of 35.6 points, surpassing the global average of 30.24 points, our students have demonstrated solid academic performance.

One in five of the cohort achieved 40 points or above, which is higher than the UK national average of 16%, and several students achieved exceptional scores, including eight boys who attained either 44 or 43 points.

KES pupils will continue to uphold the long-standing tradition of attending top UK universities like Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group institutions, as well as choosing a wonderfully diverse range of subjects.

Dr Katy Ricks, Chief Master, said: “From Natural Sciences at Cambridge, Maths at UCL and Medicine at Imperial to Engineering at Oxford, Broadcast Journalism at Leeds and Criminology at Exeter, our pupils have selected courses and universities that match their passions, their intellectual curiosity and their future career plans. Other pupils will read Sports Management and Coaching with a professional year at Bath, Biomedical Engineering at Imperial and Automotive and Transport Design at Coventry, and this is to name but a few of the wonderfully diverse subjects that await the King Edward’s Class of 2023. It is wonderful to see such variety in our pupils’ Higher Education choices. We wish each one of them well as they embark on the next stage of their education.

“As well as preparing pupils academically for university, school is about preparation for life and we aim that our pupils leave us as well-rounded young men who are ready to make a contribution to the world around them. This is certainly true of this year’s leavers. They have contributed magnificently to all parts of school life during their time at King Edward’s, including during the hugely disruptive Covid years. We are exceptionally proud of the resilience they have shown.”
