“Many of our graduates will be leaving for universities around the world in a couple of months. I also know that we have several students who have decided to take a Gap year and explore new opportunities in the world, broadening their own horizons before returning to education. Whichever route our graduates have chosen, we know that their IB education will stand them on solid ground to embrace and enjoy whatever comes their way.”

“This year’s graduates have a diverse range of interests and career plans for the future, and they are heading off to universities in Canada, the USA, the UK and Europe. Some of the disciplines to be studied include Art and Design, Business, Biomedical Sciences, Mechatronics, Engineering, Computer Science, Education, Economics, Global Politics, Law, Liberal Arts, Environmental Science, Theatre Performance, Musical Performance, Chemistry, Medicine, Psychology and Social Sciences.

“In Canada, students were offered places at Acadia University, Brock University, Concordia University, Dalhousie University, Guelph University, McGill University, McMaster University, Mount Saint Vincent University, Ontario Tech University, Queen’s University, Trent University, University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, Western University, Wilfrid Laurier University and York University.

“Graduates going to the USA were offered places at Brown University, Florida Institute of Technology, Johns Hopkins University, Northeastern University, Northwestern University, Stanford University, Southern Methodist University, The Catholic University of America and UCLA.

“In the UK and Europe, the offers came from David Tvildiani Medical University, Exeter University, Leeds University, Manchester University, Norwich University of the Arts, Nottingham University, Oxford Brookes, University of the West of England and the University of Hertfordshire.”

Mrs. Parker said, “Almost two-thirds of our IB graduates have been with us since Primary, and it has been rewarding to see the girls complete their BHS journey. For the other students who joined us along the way, we are delighted that their BHS experience has prepared them for success. We thank our supportive and hard-working teachers for their unwavering commitment and subject expertise in helping these students achieve their highest potential.

“We are very proud of all of our IB students for their focus and determination over the past two years, and we wish them continued success.”
