Girls at Cheltenham Ladies’ College are celebrating their International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma results today having achieved an impressive average of 39.6 points, which carries a UCAS tariff equivalent to A*A*A*A at A Level.
The results, released yesterday afternoon, saw 100% of the students pass their Diploma with marks significantly higher than the 2015 national average of 29.8 points. Named best boarding school in the UK for IB results in 2015, this year CLC saw the largest number of students taking the Diploma since it was introduced in 2008.
Three girls also achieved Bilingual Diplomas, mastering two languages to native speaker standard, and a number of girls have gained places at world-leading US universities, including Dartmouth, Berkeley and Duke, as well as many who will study in the UK.
Among these achievements, Isabella Crane from Cheltenham, Rachel Manson from Churcham, and Christiana McMurdo from Georgetown, Cayman Islands, all achieved full marks in their Higher Level exams. They will now go on to study History and International Relations at Exeter, Dentistry at Birmingham and Law at Durham.
Principal Eve Jardine Young said: “We are absolutely delighted for the girls and staff, all of whom have enjoyed this stimulating and rewarding Diploma programme which brings so much to the distinctive educational experience at CLC. These are quite simply fantastic results.”
