Warwick Academy students who studied during Covid get 100% pass rate
Warwick Academy has celebrated its exam results for the class of 2022, who persevered with studies through the Covid-19 pandemic.
The school marked 100 per cent passes for the International Baccalaureate diploma with an average total point score of 34 out of a maximum of 45.
The IB results came in July, with the Business and Technology Education Council results released this month.
Dave Horan, the principal, congratulated staff and students for working hard through “unprecedented circumstances” over the last two years.
“It is very easy to focus on statistics when we make this announcement,” Mr Horan said.
“However we must recognise that whilst these are important, they often hide the real achievements and fundamental value of what our graduates have been doing.”
He said each of the 56 graduates came with unique stories that data could not convey.
“This includes their hard work, leadership and service, which has shone through.
“Results without context limit the story and in saying this we celebrate their individual journeys and show gratitude to our staff and parents who have supported them over a difficult two years.”
Mr Horan said the school had its first cohort this year of the IB Career-related Programme. They are the first in Bermuda to achieve the qualification.
He congratulated the top IB students who scored 35 points and above:
· Sophia Banner with 42 points, who will study at the University of Oxford in the UK;
· James Luckham, 40: University of Leeds, UK;
· Hugo Calliere, 39: University of Exeter, UK;
· Gianna Lupparelli, 39: Brock University, Canada;
· Kirsty Pollett, 39: University of Durham, UK;
· Taylor White, 39: Bentley University, USA;
· Leo Foster, 37: University of Liverpool, UK;
· Caroline McPhail, 36: University of Southampton, UK;
· Tayla Horan, 35: Loughborough University, UK;
· Aidan Jones, 35: Queens University, Canada;
· Katarina Rance, 35: Western University, Canada.
Seventeen graduates completed the IB Individual Subjects pathway, achieving the school’s highest-ever average point score of 28.
Mr Horan commended the top students on the programme who scored 34 points and above:
· Charlie Thorpe, 35: Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada;
· Taylor Crichlow, 34: University of Essex, UK;
· Benjamin Floyd, 34: Dalhousie University, Canada.
There were 13 graduates from the IB Career-related Programme.
Mr Horan said: “Within the IBCP, 64 per cent of the students achieved a Distinction Star or Distinction for their vocational BTEC course with the following students achieving a Distinction Star.
“This is equivalent to an A* grade on the A-level programme.”
