International Baccalaureate results exceed the international average

Parkside Sixth is pleased to announce another set of International Baccalaureate (IB) results exceeding the international average. The rigorous, academic qualification taken world-wide consists of six subjects of A level equivalence, along with a core requirement of a dissertation, a critical thinking course, and an extra-curricular programme. Students achieving in all of these areas receive the prestigious IB Diploma.

The IB has two key measures: pass rate and average point score of students passing the diploma. The cohort of students at Parkside Sixth outperformed their peers internationally in both of these measures, with a pass rate of over 80% and a point score of 31. Students have secured university places at, among other institutions, Bristol, Warwick and Sussex Universities to study courses as diverse as Biochemistry, Sport and Korean Studies.

Parkside Sixth also offers Level 3 BTEC Extended Diplomas in Sport, Health and Social Care, and Business. Although results are still provisional for these courses, projections suggest a highly impressive 100% of students in Business achieving three starred Distinctions, the highest possible score.

Head of Sixth, Jess Pearce, said: “We are delighted with these results and congratulate our students for their hard work. We wish them all very well in the future.”

Headteacher, Jodh Dhesi, added: “On top of Parkside Community College’s Outstanding rating for overall effectiveness by Ofsted this year, these results are a pleasing success. Parkside Sixth offers an inclusive setting with excellent courses where students achieve well.”
