Ready for an exciting future Hillingdon

ACS Hillingdon celebrates excellent IB results from the Class of 2019.

22 ACS Hillingdon students received their final IB Diploma results, securing their places at a range of universities in the UK, US and around the world.

ACS Hillingdon International School’s Class of 2019 achieved a remarkable 100 per cent pass rate this year, with an average score of 31 points, which is equivalent to 180 UCAS points. To put this into perspective, on average three A* grades at A Level are worth 168 UCAS points. Nine per cent of 2019 students from ACS Hillingdon were awarded 38 points or above. Martin Hall, Head of School at ACS Hillingdon, commented:

Our students have achieved incredible results, through a sustained period of hard work and commitment. It has been a privilege and a pleasure working with and teaching our leaving class of 2019.

“The results achieved are a reflection of the students’ commitment to their IB studies, the teamwork between school leavers and teachers and their enduring positive attitude. I wish each of our new graduates the best of luck in their next chapters.”

Nearly a quarter, 23 per cent, of this year’s graduating class completed bilingual diplomas, and the highest examination score was 39/45.

Alexandra, IB Diploma student and 2019 ACS graduate, commented: “The IB was vital in my preparation for university honing my time management and communication skills.”

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: acs-schools.com/bursaries.
