Girls' school 'thrilled' with top IB results
THE first group of students at The Red Maids' School to sit the International Baccalaureate Diploma have achieved some spectacular results.
All the girls who took the exams passed, with an average point score of 36. The maximum is 45.
This puts the school among the best performers in the country for the IB, which is a broad-based, internationally-recognised qualification equivalent to A-levels.
Headmistress Isabel Tobias said: "We are delighted the teachers have been so accurate in their assessments. The girls have really excelled across the board."

Most Red Maids' students scored full marks in the core element of the IB, which includes theory of knowledge, an extended essay and community action and service.
Mrs Tobias said: "It has been a marvellous educational experience for staff and students and we are thrilled with our first set of results."
Pupil Louise Cottle achieved an outstanding score of 42, which is likely to put her in the top one per cent of students worldwide.
Louise said: "It's been a real challenge but I really enjoyed the fact that I could stretch myself in a range of subjects."
She is still deciding what to do next but is considering applying for medicine at university.
Mr Rob Evans, Academy Principal, said "This year's IBDP results are really pleasing, in what has been our fourth year offering the IB qualification, and further confirm Winterbourne International Academy as a leading provider of the international qualification in the South West."
