The Abbey School is celebrating another outstanding set of IB results – reaffirming our globally renowned status as one of the top IB schools in the world.

An IB Diploma point score of 39 is the level required to gain admission to the most competitive courses at Oxbridge, so The Abbey average of 40 points (30 is the world average) is testament to the exceptional dedication of both students and staff despite the disruption they have faced this year.
