Warwick Students Achieve “Outstanding Results”

July 7, 2015

Fullscreen capture 772015 100031 AMWarwick Academy’s graduating class of 2015 has achieved “outstanding overall results” in the International Baccalaureate Programme, with Fiona Dobson [pictured] ranking as the first student from the school to achieve 45 out of a possible 45 points – an achievement that only 0.3 percent of the programme’s body worldwide can claim.

Principal Mrs. Maggie McCorkell said, “Fiona also becomes our second student to achieve direct entry into undergraduate study at Cambridge University. The graduating class achieved a 92 percent diploma pass rate and a 100 percent pass rate in the individual subjects.

“In addition, the school’s average diploma score is 32.88 points per student, our best to date. With the worldwide average placed at 30 points, this is a very valid measure with which to benchmark the strength of the programme at the school and it is inclusive of all students not only those at the top end.

“Equally pleasing is the increase of top level grades – 31 percent of the subjects graded achieved a level 6 or 7 – 7 is the top score for each subject.”

“There were some outstanding individual scores, with Fiona Dobson on 45 points, Olivia Moore with 42 points, Phoebe Dill with 41 points, Daniel Hetzel with 40 points, Amelia Oatley, and Brianna Siddle on 37 points, and Evan Watkins and Kyra Dunstan on 36 points.

“Many of the students are now going on to study at some of the most outstanding universities in the world, with the top point scores of 36 and above including:

  • Fiona Dobson – 45 points – Cambridge University, England, to study Geography
  • Olivia Moore – 42 points – The University of Surrey, England, to study Veterinary Medicine and Science
  • Phoebe Dill – 41 points – Durham University, England, to study Combined Honours in Social Sciences, Geography and Sociology
  • Daniel Hetzel – 40 points – Northeastern University, USA, to study Mechanical Engineering
  • Amelia Oatley – 37 points – University of Warwick, England, to study Law
  • Brianna Siddle – 37 points – Edinburgh University, Scotland, to study Social Policy and Sociology
  • Evan Watkins – 36 points – Stirling University, Scotland, to study Business Management and Marketing
  • Kyra Dunstan – 36 points – University of Western Ontario, Canada, to study Management and Organisational Studies

“These excellent results are the culmination of commitment, hard work, time management and effort by both the students and their teachers and on behalf of Warwick Academy; I would like to congratulate all involved.

“I am delighted with these results and wish all the graduates’ success in all their future educational and life paths,” Mrs. McCorkell added.

    Congratulations are due to all of the students.

    Whilst special recognition might go to the high achievers, recognition must go to everyone since I am sure they each made their own sacrifice to achieve their results.

      I am sure there are some students who will be honest with themselves and admit they did not sacrifice as much as they should. Deferred gratification pays off and has no regrets!!
