For a non-selective school catering to IB cohorts of 90-100 students, JESS has produced phenomenal results since it began offering the IB Diploma and IB Diploma Courses. The school has consistently performed above the IB world average overall, in individual subject areas and in the core areas of Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge.
The IB Programme continues to go from strength to strength with the most recent cohort (May 2016) achieving yet again our best set of results moving the bar even higher. There were many stand-out highlights including 3 students who scored 43 points or more placing them in the top 5% globally. The school’s overall average of 35.3 continues to fly high above the world average of 30 points and was complimented this year with a 100% pass rate and individual subject averages of 5.7. With 35 points being the equivalent of two A*s and two As at A level this is a very satisfying result. Perhaps more telling was the significant value added to our students coming with mixed ability ranges who outperformed across nearly all metrics to attain impressive final results proving once again that JESS is a place where students can, quite simply, excel.
