Top IB Schools (Small Cohort)

In this section we give you our own assessment of the Top Small Cohort IB Schools in the UK for 2015. These positions are compiled from the average points achieved by sixth formers taking the Diploma Programme of the IB. Note that the IB is still a relatively new qualification for UK schools and many have not been offering it sufficiently long to have results to publish. The International Baccalaureate Organisation refuses to publish results and we have had to collect these statistics by asking each school individually. We show two league tables - this small cohort table is for schools with IB DP students of 19 or less and more than 10. If a school has less than 10 pupils doing the IBDP their scores are not statistically credible and additionally we would not recommend them because their numbers are too small to offer a good range of IB subjects. A small cohort school will inevitably be offering other curriculums such as A Levels. Speak to us on 01732 368767 for advice.
