Wellington is a highly academic school that prides itself on the breadth and depth of its curriculum, the excellence of its teaching staff and its clear focus on equipping pupils with the skills — and the desire — to become life-long independent learners.
Academic life is at the forefront and centre of every Wellingtonian’s experience of their time at College: it is the foundation on which all else is built. As you would expect, exam results are excellent: our IB students have averaged over 40 points for several years now, making us one of the highest achieving schools, not just in the UK but across the world, while our A Level statistics are similarly impressive.
In the May 2023 examination session, the first one for which the IBO removed any and all COVID mitigations, Wellington College can be proud of our IB Diploma results. The cohort of 116 students achieved an average of 38.6 points, with a core average of 2.3. These outcomes place the College well above both the Global and UK averages. In addition, with some 47% of the cohort achieving 40 points or more in total, we may justifiably count ourselves among the strongest academic schools offering the IB Diploma. The full breakdown of IB results for 2023 will follow shortly. Results for previous years: 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019.
In 2023, at A Level, over 40% of the cohort achieved straight A grades or better, with one in twelve pupils scoring straight A* grades. Over two thirds (68.1%) of all grades were A* or A. The full breakdown of A Level results for 2023 will follow shortly. Results for previous years: 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019.
In 2023, at GCSE, 9 was the most common grade, with over 37% of all grades awarded at that level. 66% of grades were either 8 or 9. Over 30 pupils scored at least eight grade 9s. The full breakdown of GCSE results for 2023 will follow shortly. Results for previous years: 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019.
