2020 IB Results

Overall, 28 of the 29 students were entered for the full IB diploma.  96% of those students achieved the full diploma, with an average score of 33 points; above the worldwide average of 31 points. This 96% pass rate is also well above the worldwide average pass rate of 79%, highlighting the benefit of a BHS IB education in ensuring success for its students.  

Head of School, Linda Parker, stated, “While we regret the undue stress that was put on everyone during this 2020 exam period, we are ultimately pleased with the rethink by the IB organisation and the final results awarded to the 2020 graduates. Our students displayed grit and resilience during this challenging time and I wish all of them the best in the next part of their educational and personal journeys.”

Mrs. Sarah Wheddon, Head of IB, added “I would like to offer my congratulations to all the members of the BHS Class of 2020. These students persevered through an impossibly stressful situation, and ended their BHS education in a way nobody could have prepared for. They have now begun the next phase of their education and we are confident that they have left BHS with the skills and competencies to carry them forward.”

This year’s graduates have a diverse range of interests and career plans for the future, and they are heading off to universities in Canada, the USA, the UK, Europe and China. They are pursuing a wide range of courses, including Optometry, Political Science, Commerce and Business Management, Fashion Journalism, Dance, Art History, Forensic Science, Social Work, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Biomedical Sciences, Fine Art and Environmental Sciences.

Mrs. Parker concluded, “This year it was especially rewarding to see all our IB students complete their BHS journey, given the difficult circumstances surrounding COVID-19. It was a graduation to remember, with a socially distanced and live-streamed ceremony, and we are grateful that we were able to celebrate their achievements together. I thank our supportive and hard-working teachers for their unwavering commitment and dedication in helping these students achieve their highest potential. We are very proud of all of our IB students for their focus and determination over the past two years, and we wish them continued success.”
