STUDENTS at Windermere School are celebrating after receiving 'outstanding' results.

The Windermere School Class of 2022 achieved outstanding International Baccalaureate (IB) results with a IBDP average of 33 points, a one hundred per cent pass rate and the school’s highest ever number of bilingual diplomas which is 48 per cent.

Almost half of all graduating students completed elements of the course across two different languages putting them in a commanding position for both university and career outcomes.

A total of twenty-nine students sat the IB this year. Seventeen of the cohort were Diploma students, three of whom will claim their place on the School Honours Board, which recognises IB students who achieve 40 points or more.

Bethan Handy achieved 41 points with Amber Kenny and Theodore Williams achieving 40. The school has said these results are 'extraordinary achievements' as only 7% of IB candidates globally achieve more than 40 points.

Bethan Handy secured a place at Durham University to read Climate Science, with Amber Kenny reading PPE at the University Leeds.

Daniella Redhead will be going to Newcastle to read Sociology and Martyna Binek will be reading Global Studies at York. 

Stannite William Turner (2021) who will now be taking up his place to read Medicine at Aston University.

Headmaster, Tom Hill said, “I am extremely proud to be able to announce the IB results published this morning.

"This cohort, above all others, have contended with so much in recent times and their efforts are writ large across the results we have seen today. They are ready for the future with both the currency of their grades and their strength of character.

"This is a testament not only to their dedication but to the selfless work of the staff at Windermere who have been with them every step of the way.”
