40/45 point average in IB Diploma

Whitgift is pleased to announce that this year’s International Baccalaureate (IB) students achieved an average score of 40 points out of 45; matching the same average achieved over the last 3 years.

Over half of students achieved 40+ points, a feat typically achieved by only the top 10% of students worldwide. This year’s scores were based on externally marked coursework for all students in all subjects.

Director of International Baccalaureate Ms Emma Mitchell said: “Congratulations to all our students on completing the IB Diploma - I am delighted that their hard work has led to a 100% pass rate in this year of global change. I am incredibly proud of the manner in which the Whitgift community pulled together to submit this coursework on schedule, without any drop in academic standards during the School’s transition to online learning.

“The range of university destinations for this cohort includes Cambridge, Oxford, Bath, UCL and Edinburgh and we wish all of our graduates well in their future studies.”

In 2019 Whitgift was listed as a Top 10 IB school by The Sunday Times Schools Guide and was presented with a Crystal Award as the number 1 boys’ IB school in the UK. In 2019, Crystal also ranked Whitgift as 6th in the UK, and 15th in the top 50 worldwide, for results.
