Students at ACS Cobham International School celebrated their success in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, with nearly half the students achieving top grades.

The class of 2014 were handed their results last week, with 45 per cent of students achieving a grade six or seven, the equivalent of an A or A* at A-level.

The average score across graduates was comparable to three As and a B at A-level.

Tony Eysele, headteacher of school at ACS Cobham, said: "This year’s graduating class should be tremendously proud of all they have achieved over the last two years.

"Not only have they made a tremendous impact on the life of the school, but they have displayed a wonderful work ethic in studying towards their IB diplomas."
