Per­fect points in Bacc chal­lenge

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

Stu­dents, staff and par­ents at Ash­ford’s Nor­ton Knatch­bull School have been cel­e­brat­ing the record-break­ing re­sults for the In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate they re­ceived on Satur­day.

A new record was set by Ju­lian Gray, who gained the full 45 points in the IB Diploma. He is go­ing to Ox­ford Univer­sity to study Chi­nese. Three stu­dents have places at Cam­bridge. Daniel Stanyon achieved 44 points and will read phi­los­o­phy, Thomas Hitch­cock 42 and will study nat­u­ral sciences and Charles Barker 41 points and will take hu­man, so­cial and po­lit­i­cal science.

As­sis­tant head teacher Jamie MacLean said: “We of­fer the IB Diploma be­cause we be­lieve that it pro­vides an ex­cit­ing and chal­leng­ing ed­u­ca­tion and is an ex­cel­lent prepa­ra­tion for univer­sity study.”

Su­san Far­rant, head of sixth form, said: “The high-rank­ing Rus­sell Group uni­ver­si­ties, in­clud­ing Ox­ford and Cam­bridge, are very keen to of­fer places to stu­dents who have such a strong aca­demic and wider skills pro­file.”
