Excellent IB results proves hard work pays off
11th July 2013

Some excellent results for this year's Upper Sixth leavers have resulted in offers to top universities such as UCL, Imperial, Edinburgh and Bristol being taken.

Charlotte Koehler gained 43 out of a possible 45 points (the equivalent of almost five A*s at A-Level) which earns her a place at Bristol to read Psychology. Harry Ban and Giacomo Geronico Orlandi both scored in the 40s to get to Imperial College to study Maths and King's College, London to study law, respectively.

Ollie Hall and Anne-Kristin Sturm did not allow a highly successful year of being Head Boy and Head Girl to get in the way of their studies and scored 38 and 39 points respectively. Ollie wins a place at Brunel, having exceeded his offer. Anne-Kristin takes a gap year before planning her next move.

Alice & Rebekah Malcolm, local girls who have been at King Edward's since the 1st Form, both won places to university with scores of 34 and 35. Alice is heading to King's whilst Rebekah has a place confirmed at Exeter to study Classics.

Other noteworthy scores include a 38 for Sarah Tout, a day girl from Witley, who will be reading English at Warwick and Maryna Azarchenko, who scored 37 to get a place at Exeter. Bryan Lam scored a top mark of 7 in his Higher Level Art and takes his place at Central St Martin's art college.

For those who either exceeded or just fell short of their offers, the month and a half before A-Level results are released gives students plenty of time to speak to universities and consider their options.

The Headmaster, John Attwater, commented: "There is no doubt that competition for good university places remains tough, and it is good to see that the IB Diploma continues to reward those who work hard and have the breadth of skills and global outlook that today's world demands. All those things have been recognised with great individual success stories across the whole ability range of students at King Edward's."

Notes to Editor:

King Edward’s School

King Edward’s School in Witley, Surrey, is an independent co-educational boarding and day school for boys and girls from ages 11 to 18. The School was founded in 1553 to provide housing and education for destitute children in London. To this day the School still provides bursary support and boarding accommodation for around a quarter of its students and high levels of pastoral care are at the heart of its ethos. However, the School has moved on to become one of the top independent schools in the country, with a reputation for excellence in many areas, including its International Baccalaureate 6th Form curriculum.
