IB Results 2020

Many congratulations to the Class of 2020 on their outstanding IB results.

Together they have achieved the remarkable average Diploma score of 40.1 points, about ten points above the world average.

Eighteen students achieved the maximum 45 points, with 24 securing 44 points and another 23 securing 43 points. Over 60 per cent of the cohort achieved 40 points or more – another truly excellent result.

We are proud of all our students and the contribution they have made to the school and to the local and global community. We congratulate the cohort of 2020 on their hard work, professionalism and how they coped with the disappointment of their exams being cancelled, using the opportunity to pursue academic enrichment and service.

The IB Diploma, the global gold standard of education, will enable our students to proceed to the world’s best universities and go on to make a valuable contribution to society.

Over 165,000 students from 144 countries took the IB Diploma last year. The IB’s outlook is invaluable, instilling in our young people the capacity to understand and prosper in our global community.


Year 11 Results 2020

Sevenoaks School’s GCSE and IGCSE results are in line with outstanding results from previous years and a reflection of the hard work of our students.

  • 94.9% of all examinations were graded A/A* or 9/8/7
  • 27 students gained 11 or 12 A*/A +9/8/7 grades, and further 106 achieved 10 A*/A +9/8/7 grades

We are proud of how all our students have responded with incredible resilience during this unusual academic year. We are especially proud of those receiving results after two years of hard work and in the midst of so much uncertainty.

Our students have all demonstrated maturity and initiative during the period of distance learning and we wish them every success in their continued education. 


Year 11 Results 2019

Sevenoaks School is again celebrating outstanding examination results for Year 11.

  • Over 87% of all examinations were graded A or A* equivalent
  • 116 students gained nine or more A*/A grades equivalent

This year sees even more subjects moving to the new GCSEs graded 1–9. The highest grade 9 was harder to achieve than the previous A*, in a tougher, revised GCSE exam system.

While for many schools in England most of their GCSEs will be graded 1-9, Sevenoaks School students take a mixture of GCSEs, IGCSEs and SSC (Sevenoaks School Certificate), where many results are still graded A*-G. All students took three separate IGCSE sciences, Mathematics and English Language. We were particularly delighted by the success in our own externally moderated Sevenoaks School Certificate in English Literature, now in its ninth year, and by the results in their fifth awarding year of Art, Drama, Music, Technology (Robotics) and Technology (Visual Communications).

The Acting Head, Theresa Homewood, said, ‘These results are excellent, and a superb achievement for both students and teachers. We are delighted that our students start the IB Diploma Programme with such strong qualifications.’
