Exam Results

King Edward’s is an academic school admitting pupils with a broad range of ability. In common with many top schools we do not participate in league tables of results, which we believe to be misleading. However, we understand our IB results place us among the top co-educational boarding and day schools in the UK and almost all our pupils proceed to a university of their choice.

International Baccalaureate Programme Results

Congratulations to our 2019 Sixth Form leavers. 100%  of the cohort passed the IBDP with an average score of 34.7 points, well outstripping the worldwide average for IB students of 30 points out of a possible 45.  56% of individual subject grades were 7 or 6 – the equivalent to A -level A* and A, which - when it is considered that candidates study six subjects rather than three or four - is an outstanding achievement.
