IB Results Cobham News

ACS Cobham celebrates outstanding results.

This week 71 students from ACS International School Cobham received their final IB Diploma results, allowing them to accept a range of offers to attend world-class universities in the UK, US and around the world. 16 per cent of ACS Cobham students were awarded 38 points or above, equivalent to 236 UCAS points. To put this into perspective, 3 A* grades at A Level are worth 168 UCAS points.

Barnaby Sandow, incoming Head of School at ACS Cobham, commented:

I’m extremely impressed by the hard work, commitment and perseverance that every student has shown this year. They have been superb role models for everyone within the school community and their achievements are inspiring. I know that they will all go on to great things and I look forward to seeing what the future brings. 

Nearly a quarter of the 2019 class completed bilingual diplomas with native-level language and literature courses and many of the ACS Cobham leavers will be going on to study at leading universities.

Bethan Holloway-Strong, who received an offer from Cambridge University to read English Literature, said: “Being at ACS has prepared me for university because of the opportunity to take the IB. I knew that the fast-paced, one year AP courses didn’t suit me and A Levels didn’t offer me a broad enough range of subjects, so the IB was the perfect opportunity for me to explore what I liked and decide with confidence what I wanted to study at university.”

ACS International Schools is offering bursaries to children aged 11+, 13+ and 16+ at its three UK campuses in Cobham, Egham and Hillingdon for the 2019/2020 academic year. The bursaries are offered to students who will benefit most from an ACS education, including the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, but might not otherwise be able to attend the school. The financial awards will range from 20-100 per cent of the fees, with all bursaries awarded on a means-tested basis and dependent on the student’s individual circumstance.
