IB Diploma Results

At ICS London we place a great amount of importance on community, emotional development and educating the 'whole student'. But this is not at the expense of maintaining high academic standards.

The proof is in our results. We're proud that over the past four years our students achieved an average International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) mean point score of 34 – significantly higher than the world average of 29.

Researchers have found that students on IB programmes perform better than their peers on other educational tracks in many ways, including higher average marks and more first-choice university acceptances.

We are also the only international school in London offering e-assessment for our Middle Years Programme (MYP), allowing students aged 11-16 the opportunity to be assessed through ePortfolios and on-screen exams.

In 2019 the Telegraph ranked ICS London #11 for A-level equivalent results, from small independent schools, in all of the United Kingdom. This was a ranking result provided by the Independent Schools Council (ISC), which also recognises ICS London.

Barnaby Lenon, Chairman of the ISC, said: "Regardless of whether a pupil wants to pursue a more academic or vocational pathway, independent schools are well-placed to enable them access to the route that will best meet their needs. This year’s results show that schools are offering a wider array of educational opportunities and effectively supporting pupils to fulfil their potential."
