Romilly Leech, last year’s Head Girl, scored 39 points secured her place at Oxford University to study English and Spanish. She said: “The IB is brilliant. I found my learning in art and Spanish influenced my English and maths too, and I loved being able to study so many books in IB English, all of which I could choose myself.”

Eleni Psarros also achieved 39 points to win a place at Edinburgh University to read Geography. She said: “The IB Diploma has opened my mind in so many ways to new things - I really appreciate the opportunity to study this course.”

Imogen Scobie achieved 40 points and will be taking up the unconditional offer she received from Birmingham University to study Philosophy. 

Emma Hodson also scored 39 points. She joined Red Maids’ in the Sixth Form having spent most of her childhood in Africa.  She said: “Since finishing my exams in May I have been in Iceland studying the life of arctic foxes. I want to study Zoology either in the UK or Canada and will be applying to do so during my year out.” 

Isabel Tobias, the school’s Headmistress, said: “Global awareness is at the heart of who we are and being an IB World School completely reflects our mission and goals. 

“The inter-connectedness of the learning makes this a highly distinctive qualification.

“I congratulate our students and teachers who work in a truly collaborative manner that produces excellent results year after year.”
