Ready for an exciting future
ACS Egham proudly celebrates outstanding IB results.
47 ACS Egham students received their final IB Diploma results this week, opening the door to attend world-class universities in the UK, US and across the globe.
Over a third of ACS International School Egham students were awarded 38 points or above, equivalent to 236 UCAS points this year – which, to put into perspective, compares to more than four A* grades at A Level. Jeremy Lewis, Head of School at ACS Egham, commented:
This year’s results are a true testament to all of the students’ hard work over the last two years, as well as the dedication of the faculty to help them succeed. As well as studying six subjects, IB students also have additional requirements to complete to obtain the full IB Diploma.
“This includes the Extended Essay, an independent research project; Community Action and Service, where students volunteer in the community; and Theory of Knowledge, which helps students apply their knowledge across different situations.”
17 per cent of the 2019 class completed bilingual diplomas, reinforcing the international mindset of the IB, and the school’s top grade this year was an impressive 42/45.
“It is a very demanding but highly rewarding programme, which I know will stand every student in good stead as they prepare for their next adventure, wherever that may be,” added Jeremy, “I cannot wait to hear what the future has in store for every new graduate.”
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 schools’ fees, with all bursaries awarded on a means-tested basis and dependent on the student’s individual circumstance. To find out more visit: www.acs-schools.com/bursaries
