Lightning struck three times recently at Dwight School in Barnet as three pairs of twins secured exceptional marks in their International Baccalaureate results and places at some of the world’s most prestigious universities. The three twins scored an incredible average of 43 points in their International Baccalaureate Diploma results (the equivalent of 3 A stars and 2 As at A level).
The class of 2021 secured a 100% pass rate with an average score of 38 (the equivalent of 3 A stars and an A at A level) against a world average of 33 points. The exceptional cohort saw four students score the maximum possible grade of 45 points (the equivalent of 5 A stars at A level) – an impressive one in six students from the graduating year! As a non-selective school, Dwight School is incredibly proud of its IB Diploma results.
The International Baccalaureate develops students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. The School’s students have secured places at universities such as Imperial, SOAS, University of Edinburgh, University of Toronto to study a diverse range of subjects such as Chemical Engineering, Politics and International Relations, Astrophysics, Political Sciences and Architectural Technology.
Alison Cobbin, Head of Dwight School London, remarked; “this group of students have completed their diploma amidst the backdrop of remote learning and isolation but they have risen to the challenges, supported each other and taken advantage of the outstanding remote learning provision Dwight has provided, to achieve truly exceptional results. I wish them the very best of luck and hope that, like other graduates, they remain a part of the Dwight community: giving back and providing advice to our current students.”
William Bowry, Diploma Coordinator, said: “it is truly wonderful to see this talented group of students achieve their potential and attend top UK universities such as UCL, Kings and Imperial. However, as an international school, we have been able to provide expert advice which has helped our students secure places at the University of Amsterdam, University of Toronto, and NorthWestern in the US.”
