Another year of outstanding results saw our students again achieve record grades. At A Level, sixteen students earned at least one A* grade, making 24 in total, comfortably beating our previous record. Over 18% of all papers were graded A*, which is more than twice as good as the UK average of 8.2%. The A* grade is designed to identify the very top students and is a passport to top universities around the world: for almost half the class to have earned an A* is outstanding. In addition, two students – Gwang Hoon Lee and Khyla Muzni – scored 100% in Maths. This brilliant achievement will jointly earn them the World Prize from Edexcel.

At IGCSE, over 45% of papers were graded A*, compared to the UK average of 7% at GCSE. For the second year in a row, this is better than in 2012, when our results were identified as the 3rd best of any international school in the world. Among many high achievers, Nidula Athulathmudali scored 96% in English Language and Urshella Hisham 97% in Maths.

At A Level, a record fourteen students gained 3 or more A grades, all including at least one A*. Gwang Hoon Lee and Khyla Muzni both gained 3A* grades with an overall average of over 95% across their four subjects.
