Congratulations to our Upper Sixth boys who received their International Baccalaureate Diploma results today. The boys recorded a 100% pass rate, with over 89% of the exams marked at grades 7-5 (the equivalent of A*-B at A-Level); further to this, 31% of the cohort scored 40 or more points. The average score per candidate was 36 points; significantly higher than the international average of 30 points.
Special congratulations go to Bryan Ng and Ben Moule who earned Oxbridge places on the back of their outstanding IB results. Bryan, who achieved an incredible 41 points (out of a possible 45 points), will be reading Chemistry at Trinity College, Oxford, and Ben, who also scored an excellent 41 points, will read Theology and Religion at Worcester College, Oxford.
My congratulations go to both boys and staff on the results, which are again excellent, and I wish the boys the very best as they take up their places in universities both in this country and abroad.
– James Hodgson, Head Master
However, the results are only half the story; we are also very proud that the boys are leaving Bedford School as critical thinkers and compassionate citizens, with the intellectual, personal, social and emotional skills to succeed.
