Repton School Dubai Pupils Score Top Marks in IB Programmes

Repton School Dubai Pupils Score Top Marks in IB Programmes
25% of Repton School Dubai pupils have scored over 40 points in their 2020 IB Diplomas.


Repton School Dubai, the sister school of Repton Malaysia, is celebrating record-breaking results that this year’s pupils have achieved in their International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations. Around a quarter of Repton School Dubai pupils achieved over 40 points in the rigorous, interdisciplinary exams, a huge achievement. Meanwhile, 43% of pupils achieved at least 36 points, a credit to the school’s endeavours to help every pupil to excel.

Repton and their Dubai partner school make every effort to ensure that all pupils receive the support that they need to achieve their best. As part of this promise, Repton School Dubai enters every pupil into either the IBDP (diploma programme) or IBCP (career programme), both of which aim to develop pupils’ knowledge academically, emotionally, and ethically. Thanks to Repton School Dubai pupils’ impressive 2020 results, they have secured highly sought-after places at prestigious universities, where they will study a range of fields around the world.

‘We are extremely proud to announce that our IB pupils passed their IB examinations with record results,’ says David Cook, Headmaster of Repton Dubai. ‘Pupils who took the IBDP examinations scored an average of 34.4 points, well above the global average of 30 points and bettering last year’s average DP score, demonstrating that Repton can reach a world class of 23% of pupils attaining 40 points or more (compared to the most recent global average of 13.82%). I would like to commend our pupils for their hard work and commitment, which has come to fruition as evidenced by their stellar performance this year.’

Repton School Dubai’s IBDP, IBCP, and BTEC Qualifications

The IBDP is recognised as a significant qualification around the world. Open to pupils aged 16–19, the programme combines wide-ranging areas of study, including theory of knowledge, creative practices, activity-driven learning, service tasks, and an extended essay. The diploma encourages pupils to think independently and drive their own learning, become more culturally aware as they study a second language, and engage with others effectively in our ever-changing world. This year, Repton School Dubai pupils averaged 1.74 IBDP core points, a huge success compared to the global average of 1 point.

In addition to excellent IBDP results, Repton School Dubai’s IBCP and BTEC pupils have achieved fantastic results and secured promising further study opportunities as a result. For example, whilst one pupil has been awarded a golf scholarship in America, another has been offered a place at the University of Birmingham to study Business Management. The IB qualification is designed to develop pupils’ personal and academic achievements, challenging them to develop their studies, creative practices, sports, and community service offerings.

Repton School Dubai integrates BTEC programmes with IBCP subjects to create bespoke programmes that support the DP subject qualifications, which are equivalent to A Levels. IBCP pupils graduate from the careers programme having also completed a Level 3 BTEC Diploma within the IBCP.

100% of Emirati pupils who completed their examinations this year have successfully earned their IBDP or IBCP certificate, meeting the region’s aim of prioritising education for young generations. Repton School Dubai has achieved higher year-on-year average results since they started offering the IB programme in 2011.

‘We embrace the IB programme because it remains our aim to develop well-rounded pupils who possess the attributes and skills required to meet the challenges of tomorrow,’ says Mr Cook.
