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 and the most recent cohort (May 2017) continued the trend of exceptional results achieved by JESS students.

The school’s overall average of 35.5 continues to fly high above the world average of 30 points, a figure which a staggering 92% of JESS students met or exceeded. These statistics are complemented this year with almost 57% of students achieving 35 points or more; equivalent of two A* and two As at A-level. The 20.4% of students that scored 40 points or more, equivalent to more than 4 A* at A-level, have reached a level that would turn the head of any university in the world. Indeed, JESS students will be taking up university places in some of the best universities in the UK, the USA, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Australia and the UAE.

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 all students can, quite simply, excel.
