We have yet to have a full cohort through for the Cambridge IGCSE exams, though our one student who took them last year scored two A grades and two B grades.
For the DP, the average score for the last three cohorts (based on those completing the FULL Diploma) are 2017/18 30.5 points, 2018/19 28.5 points, and 2019/20 33.0 points.

Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

We have a member of staff who has the title of Learning Support / Inclusion Teacher, and she works with a small number of students, across all three IB programmes, but mainly in PYP. This teacher is leaving in July 2021, and her skill set will need to be replaced. We also bring in external assistance and support, with the agreement of parents, who pay extra for this.

Learning support offered

The designated teacher offers one to one or small group support, and undertakes initial diagnostic testing to help identify the need – or otherwise – for further external intervention. This external help has taken the form of staff from ELG coming in to work with individual students; this varies according to the needs, and may be an Ed. Psych, a Behavioural Therapist, or Occupational Therapist. Our teacher advises homeroom or subject teachers on classroom strategies suited to the particular needs of each child. She also maintains close contact with parents on these matters.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

These students have access to all the extension opportunities that others do. We currently have no specific arrangements or policy in place related to this.

Student access to education psychologist

Yes, but this is not a permanent EH staff member. See above.
