Together with our A level results our students secured UCAS points (the basis for university offers) with an average of over 400 per student: the equivalent of A* A* A.
News of two former Kent College IB students reached us recently: Thomas Sayer graduated from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge with a double first in Natural Sciences and Claudia Sanchez Jimenez not only achieved a first from St Hugh s College, Oxford, but the highest mark that Oxford has ever awarded for a degree in Archaeology and Anthropology. Not surprisingly, both will continue as PhD students.
We are very flexible when it comes to constructing the timetables for Diploma candidates and encourage applicants to identify courses and subjects they wish to study even if we do not offer them as we are able bespoke most options. Kent College offers outstanding levels of teaching and support for the IB Diploma with additional classes and tutoring available as standard to ensure the very best outcomes for individuals.The academic life of the IB student is complemented with a rich and diverse extra curricular programme at Kent College. There are large numbers of clubs and societies for every interest and new ones established each year to meet the changing desires of our students. National representation in sport is common with equal standards in Music and Drama, there is simply something for everyone at Kent College. The pastoral system in the school is highly valued and central to our ethos as a Methodist school, the family atmosphere and supportive environment in the boarding and day school means that well rounded global citizens leave the school on graduation from the IB.
The Diploma consists of six subject groups:
Group 1: English (or first language)
Group 2: Second language
