We are proud to share with you the achievements of our Year 12 IB students for 2020.

4 January 2021

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma results from the November 2020 session were released yesterday and we are very pleased to share our IB students’ results with you.

42 students undertook the IB Diploma in 2020 and a further 22 SACE students who took one IB subject have now achieved their SACE completion.

We will further analyse the combined results of our IB and SACE student cohorts and look forward to communicating these to you in February once all results are final (the nature of the IB means that remarking could occur), however from yesterday’s IB results we are delighted to commend the following achievements to you:

  • Bonnie MacAdam achieved a perfect IB score of 45 out of a possible 45, translated to an ATAR of 99.95. Bonnie achieved a 7 for each of her subjects and also the maximum 3 bonus points for Theory of Knowledge and Extended Essay. This is a remarkable achievement as fewer than 1% of students worldwide achieve 45 points.
  • Kate Crowley achieved an IB score of 44 points, translated to an ATAR of 99.75.
  • George Karageorge-Nguyen, Vijay Legoe and Declan Briggs each achieved an IB score of 43 out of 45, translated to an ATAR of 99.55.
  • Benjamin Mak and Byron Betts achieved an IB score of 42 out of a possible 45, translated to an ATAR of 99.2.
  • 47 subject merits (grade 7) were achieved, with several students receiving multiple merits: 6 merits: Bonnie MacAdam. 5 merits: Kate Crowley. 4 merits: George Karageorge-Nguyen, Byron Betts, Declan Briggs and Vijay Legoe. 3 merits: Benjamin Mak.
  • 69% of our IB students received an ATAR ranking in the top 10% nationally, with:
    • 7 (17%) students awarded an ATAR over 99 (top 1% nationally)
    • 16 (38%) students awarded an ATAR over 95 (top 5% nationally)
    • 28 (67%) students awarded an ATAR over 90 (top 10% nationally)
  • Our IB median ATAR was 91.7.

We congratulate all our students who were awarded their IB Diploma and our SACE students who have now, with their IB results, achieved completion. In particular, we would like to congratulate Benjamin Mak on his incredible achievement; not only did Ben study remotely from Hong Kong for most of the year but he also achieved a score of 41 points including 3 merits. Congratulations also to our teachers whose subject expertise, passion and deep interest in our students’ learning is very much appreciated. Finally, to our IB students’ families and friends who have supported our students in their IB journey – thank you.
