More than 85 per cent of the students gained the full Diploma including those who achieved the bi-lingual diploma.

A spokesman for the school said: “The IB Diploma requires students to study six subjects to an advanced level, including maths, a modern language and a science. The maximum possible number of points is 45.

Those who achieve these scores are amongst an elite group as only 5 per cent of students worldwide achieve this level.
