Wellington College Celebrates Another Year of Superb IB, A-level and GCSE Results 

  • Average IB score: 40+ (five students scoring the perfect 45)
  • A-levels A* 37%, A*/A 79%, A*-B 95%
  • GCSE Level 9 44%, 9/8 72%, 9-7 91%

Despite the unusual nature of the 2019/2020 academic year it has been very much a case of business as usual for our examined classes. The IB cohort achieved another set of superb results, the A-levels candidates carried all before them and the GCSE students can look back on a set of grades that were a true reflection of the hard work they had put in throughout the course.

Although this summer there could be no final exams, grades were awarded by the IB on the basis of externally assessed coursework, Extended Essays and Theory of Knowledge presentations and essays.  A-levels were awarded by Centre Assessed Grades, which for Wellington were generated by an algorithm that took past performance, coursework, mock results, effort grades, and teacher predictions into account.

James Dahl, Master of Wellington College commented: 

‘I could not be prouder of this wonderful group of Wellingtonians who have secured a superb set of results, albeit in the most unorthodox of circumstances. Just as impressive is the fact that, amongst the cohort, there are numerous young men and women who have represented their country at sport or won national titles; musicians, actors and dancers who have regularly produced West End quality performances; and so many pupils who, through our Global Citizenship programme, have had a positive impact on the lives of others. They have redefined what it means to be a Wellingtonian and leave the College equipped to make their mark on the world. For our GCSE students to have done so well across the board merely confirms what a special year group they are: as they enter the Sixth Form they can look back with pride on all that they have achieved and look to the future with confidence.’
