These results are on the back of Haileybury’s best ever International Baccalaureate and A Level pass rate, reflecting the culture of high standards, hard work and intellectual curiosity that pervades the school.
"Taking the iGCSE results into account, the percentage of pupils gaining five A* – C grades is excellent, while the number achieving A or A* is the highest ever achieved at Haileybury. This is a wonderful achievement by all our pupils and is proof of the hard work and dedication put in by both pupils and staff," says the Master of Haileybury, Joe Davies.
"These results show the pupils have the necessary work ethic and love of learning to tackle the challenges of study in the Sixth Form, be they A Levels or the IB Diploma Programme," he adds.
