Local students celebrate impressive international results
12th July 2019
Students at Tonbridge Grammar School (TGS) have enjoyed another successful year of results for their International Baccalaureate (IB) exams.
These continue the school’s strong record of achievement since moving to an exclusively IB Diploma Sixth Form seven years ago.
A TGS spokesperson told the Times: “The students study an academically rigorous programme designed to develop critical thinking skills and create breadth of experience and knowledge; whilst at the same time preparing them for both higher education and the world of work.”
The average IB point score awarded to Tonbridge Grammar School students was 36 which was well above the 2018 UK average score of 34 and the 2018 global average score of 30 points. Thirty six per cent of TGS students scored 39 points and above (equivalent to in excess of 4 A* at A Level) while three scored an impressive 44 points.
Rosemary Joyce, TGS Head Teacher said: “Warmest congratulations to each and every one of our IB Diploma students for their truly outstanding results. World-class results, coupled with the wider experiences and skills the IB Diploma provides really give students the competitive edge in Higher Education and the workplace. Congratulations also to the dedicated and inspirational team of staff who work tirelessly to support our students to such fantastic success.”
