PORTSMOUTH Grammar School is celebrating its best set of International Baccalaureate Diploma results.

Pupils taking the exams achieved an average of 36.5 points, which is the equivalent to three A grades at A-level.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) is an alternative sixth-form programme in which pupils study a broader range of six subjects including a foreign language, maths and at least one science.

Headteacher James Priory said: ‘These are a superb set of results for our pupils.

‘They have worked incredibly hard to achieve these results, and we are delighted that all those going on to university have gained places in Russell Group or equivalent universities.

‘The breadth of subjects that our pupils are going on to study really underlines the value of continuing with a broad range of subjects at sixth form.

‘The rounded philosophy of the IB Diploma helps our pupils to think about where they want to be in the future, we like to think about where they aspire to be at 25 and not just at 18.’

They will study subjects including medicine, drama, geography, history, and art at university.
