level results follow on form those that our IB students received earlier
in the summer. 23 students sat the International Baccalaureate Diploma
this year with over 50% achieving the higher level at above 30 points,
which is equivalent of 3 A* grades at A Level. The average overall score
for the International Baccalaureate candidates equated to three A
grades at A Level, with local girl Caroline Hayes from Ellesmere
achieving a top score of 41 points, which is an equivalent of 4 A*
grades at A Level. She moves onto study Medicine at Newcastle. Another
notable result was that of James Morrison from Overton, with an
equivalent A level grade of over 3 A*s who will now read History at
Mr Brendan Wignall, Headmaster, said ‘It is pleasing
to see our students continue to secure top grades and all who wish to
progress to university being able to do so. Recent publications of
university destinations have been misleading as they omit students who
do the IB or choose to go to study abroad, which an increasing number
are choosing to do. At this time of year both A level and IB can be
acknowledged and therefore we celebrate all of our students’ academic
achievements today. All our students completing their studies with us
deserve this success. Credit must also go to the excellent work of our
teaching staff and of course to parents for their constant support and
