David Klompenhouwer was one of two students to score a truly outstanding 43 points. Reflecting on his achievement, he said: “It was very tense waiting for the results to be released! I’m looking forward to pursuing my chosen course of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Edinburgh.”
He added: “The IB was the best possible preparation for my future studies. I particularly value how my teachers at St George’s placed great emphasis on learning to love the subjects you’re taking, rather than focusing solely on results.”
Mr Adam Oliver, Vice Principal and Head of Senior School, said:
“On behalf of all the staff, who taught some of the year group as far back as Dragon School, including even Yellow Dragons, at either Nomentana or La Storta, we congratulate every student for the amazing commitment they have shown across their time at St George’s. In different ways, you have all achieved truly great results.”
“Our students, parents and staff should be very proud of this year’s results, which confirm both their own aspiration towards excellence and St George’s continuing status as one of the world’s leading IB schools.”
