Exam Results & University Destinations

Sixth Form

At Sixth Form level, St Edward's offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The programme has been established for over 40 years. It is a comprehensive two-year Sixth Form curriculum, leading to examinations which are recognised by universities throughout the world.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is ideal for students who wish to opt for a broader subject range. This broad range of skills, knowledge and understanding is considered a superior quality to universities and future employers.

 As well as six subjects, with three at higher level and three at standard level, students also pursue the Theory of Knowledge course, write an extended essay (mini thesis) and build up a portfolio of service and community work. The IBDP is a stimulating programme which is highly valued by universities.

The International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) is based in Geneva, is independent of any interference from national governments and therefore the Diploma has not suffered from any grade inflation. This is one of the reasons why more and more schools opt for the IB Diploma which was recently rated "10 out of 10" by the Financial Times. With currently 4,998 participating schools, from 146 countries, the IB Diploma is truly a worldwide qualification.
