International Baccalaureate students at Manchester High School for Girls have been celebrating their world-class success, as results for the IB Diploma Programme were published across the world recently.Headmistress Claire Hewitt with Niamh Walshe
The girls were the second cohort of IB students to have completed the programme at MHSG and achieved a stunning average points score of 38 which towers above the global average of 29.8 points. The fact that the standard offer for Oxford University is 38-40 points highlights the girls’ superb level of achievement.
18-year-old Niamh Walshe from Macclesfield reached a phenomenal point score of 43, which places her in the top 1% of IB students worldwide, according to last year’s global figures. She is now looking forward to taking some time out from studying and working as a music technician at a nearby school.
Ellie Liu, 18, is the first IB student at MHSG to be awarded the Bilingual Diploma, studying English, Chinese and Spanish ab initio as part of her studies. She said that all the time and effort were worth it and she thanked her teachers for their help and encouragement.
Headmistress, Mrs Claire Hewitt said: “The girls have done superbly well, having worked very hard, and I am very proud of them. To achieve results which are amongst the very best in a global arena is fantastic and I should like to congratulate the girls and their teachers for these stunning results.”
