Whitgift boys celebrate IB results

Whitgift School is ranked no.1 all-boys school in the UK’s 2016 IB league table. 

Whitgift School were delighted to be ranked as the 3rd best school in’s 2016 International Baccalaureate League Table (for a large cohort, 20+ students). Girls-only and co-educational day schools were in first and second place, meaning that Whitgift is the #1 all-boys school offering the IB diploma, as well as the # 1 boarding school.

This year’s Upper Sixth Form IB results broke many School records. The average points total, of 41 points, is the highest ever at the School, and two thirds of the group scored 40 points or more, putting them in the top 5% of candidates worldwide. Six students scored 44 points, a feat only achieved by the top 1%. Four boys (Patrick Middleton, Abbas Khan, Leith Farhan and Vishnu Patel) are all off to Oxbridge universities, so well done to them.

Particular congratulations go to Thomas McDonald, who scored the maximum 45 points, a feat achieved by only 146 students worldwide in this exam session. He matches Daniel Alsoof and Kavish Shah, who, in 2014, achieved the same feat of 45 points. 

Every year, Whitgift sees between 20 and 40 boys completing the IB Diploma. They leave school armed with a very wide and varied base of skills from which to draw for their university courses and later working lives.

The Whitgift Foundation educates more than 3000 students from in and around Croydon in our three outstanding independent schools, Trinity, Whitgift and Old Palace of John Whitgift School. For information on the Foundation’s three schools visit the webpage
