First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

Bermuda High School for Girls has announced “outstanding” exam results from the Class of 2014.

Ninety-one percent of the class entered the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and 97 percent were successful with a 100 percent pass rate in individual subjects.

The average BHS Diploma point score was 32 in comparison to the world average of 29.

Head of School, Linda Parker said: “We are thrilled to report that our IB Diploma results are again outstanding this year with the top students, Brittney Ferreira and Wendy Tuxworth each scoring 42 points out a possible 45 points, placing them in the top one percent of IB Diploma students worldwide.

“Unlike many IB schools around the world, we do not preselect students for entry into the IB Diploma, but rather all BHS students are given the opportunity to attempt this challenging programme and this year was no exception,” Mrs Parker said. “Our IB students have received offers to pursue strong academic degree courses from universities in North America and the UK.

“We thank our caring and supportive teachers for their unwavering commitment and subject expertise in helping our students achieve their highest potential.

“We are proud of all of our IB students for their strong work ethic, focus and determination to achieve their best against the challenging IB academic standard.

“Additionally, we are proud of our students' accomplishments in the arts, sports, leadership and the community.

“We are confident that our graduates are well-prepared for their future endeavours and wish them continued success.”

Kate Ross, IB Coordinator and Head of Senior Years said: “This year, as in previous years, we are pleased that students for whom the IB programme might have been considered too challenging, in fact attained the IB Diploma, thanks to the excellent instruction of our teachers, the support of peers and parents and the hard work of our students.” Notable students included: Rachel Daly with 39 points, Isabelle Stone and Zoë Smith with 38 points each and Aoife Rynne with 37 points.

BHS students were accepted to University College, London, University of Warwick, University of Birmingham, Boston University, University of East Anglia and University College, Dublin.
