    ~ International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) points scores see students secure offers from some of the UK and world’s top universities ~

    ~ Destination offers include from the University of Oxford and other Russell Group institutions ~

    Students and staff at Parkside Sixth are celebrating this week after the release of International Baccalaureate (IB) results saw a record-breaking points average for the school.

    The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a globally recognised, challenging academic course – equivalent to A Levels – which allows students to demonstrate their capabilities across a broader range of subjects. Rather than traditional A Level grades, Sixth Form students are awarded points scores across their subjects with a total of 45 representing a perfect grade across the board.

    At Parkside Sixth, this year’s Year 13s achieved the school’s highest ever average point score of 34 since it began the programme back in 2013. Representing the most impressive achievements, 15% of students scored 40 points or more!

    Released earlier in the summer than A Levels results, students are now focused on their next steps, with these fantastic achievements opening doors to top university courses. 96% of Parkside Sixth Formers achieved their firm or insurance choice university, with 27% securing entry offers from the UK’s prestigious Russell Group institutions.

    One standout performance was from Nell Wightman, who scored 43 points out of 45 – enabling her to meet her offer for St Peter’s College, Oxford to read biology.

    Other destinations secured by Parkside’s Year 13s include University College London (UCL), the University of St Andrews and the University of Exeter. Given the global appeal of the International Baccalaureate, students have also opened doors to universities across the world – from Fudan University in China to Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen in Germany.

    The breadth of subjects and interests developed at Parkside Sixth is also represented in students’ offers, ranging from medicine and modern languages to the arts and international relations.

    Rachel Biltcliffe, Head of Sixth Form at Parkside Community College, said: “We have a brilliant group of Sixth Formers who have been determined to achieve highly, despite the challenges of the past few years, so we are incredibly proud of this week’s results. The International Baccalaureate is an academically rigorous programme which tests our students over a wider range of subjects so we are very pleased that our average points score is our highest ever – demonstrating the whole year group’s achievements. Congratulations to everyone celebrating today.”

    Craig Morrison, Executive Principal, added: “These achievements have opened up a wealth of opportunities for students, including courses at some of the UK and the world’s most respected universities. We have been hugely impressed by the commitment, enthusiasm and drive of our students and we are excited to see them excel as they take their next steps into further study and the world of work.”

    ~ School’s International Baccalaureate (IB) students set to take up places at some of the country’s top universities ~

    Last week, students and staff at Parkside Sixth are celebrating after Sixth Formers received their International Baccalaureate (IB) results.

    The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a globally recognised course – equivalent to A Levels – which sees students study six academic subjects, alongside the IB Core which consists of Theory of Knowledge, an Extended Essay and Creativity, Action and Service (CAS). Rather than the more traditional A Level grades, Sixth Form students are awarded points scores with a total of 45 representing a perfect grade across the board.

    This year, Sixth Formers at Parkside Sixth were awarded an average points score of 31.2, with all students studying a language, a science, maths, English and a humanity as required by the IB. Impressively, two students, Alex and Lucia achieved bilingual diplomas, after completing language and literature studies in a different language to their other subjects.

    Buoyed by their results, students will now be taking up their places at a range of the country’s top academic institutions, including Russell Group universities. One standout performance came from Cara who achieved 41 points and will now be going on to read English and French at Somerville College, University of Oxford.

    Other destinations for Parkside Sixth Formers include the University of Warwick, University of Sussex, University of Sheffield and BIMM University. There, students will be studying a wide range of courses such as Biomedical Systems Engineering, Politics and Modern Languages and Cultures, and Songwriting.

    Rachel Biltcliffe, Head of Sixth Form at Parkside Community College, said:

    “Congratulations to our cohort of Year 13 IB students for all their hard work over the past two years. The IB is a challenging undertaking, requiring real determination and academic rigour, however our students have shown their commitment with this strong set of results. It is particularly pleasing to see so many of them securing their first-choice university destination, both in the UK and internationally. We look forward to watching them take their next steps in their academic journey.”

    Craig Morrison, Executive Principal at Parkside Community College, said:

    “At Parkside Sixth staff are entirely committed to supporting students in reaching and, where possible, exceeding their goals. We are therefore delighted to see so many of our IB students doing just that, reaching their goal points score and securing their university of choice. Well done to all those who received their results this week and saw their hard work come to fruition.”
