A big congratulations to the IB cohort of 2017, who achieved fantastic examination results. The students performed exceptionally well, achieving an average score of 39.4 points (this would have been the seventh best average score in the country last year!). A special well done to Luke Hatteland-Dunn, who scored the maximum total of 45 points (last year, only 146 candidates in the world managed this incredible feat so it is a huge accomplishment)! Five of the 30 IB students have been accepted onto courses at Oxbridge universities – we wish them all the very best in their future studies.

IB co-ordinator, Mr Sam Thater, commented, “The boys should feel extremely proud of their superb results and we wish them the very best for the future. Studying the IB at Whitgift has undoubtedly equipped them with the skills they will need to success in the years to come, and I have no doubt whatsoever that they will rise to any challenge their meet.”
