More than 850 students returned to St George’s International School today for their first day of the 2021-22 academic year.
The students, from more than 60 nationalities, are returning to a school that has undergone substantial refurbishment over the summer including a renovated secondary laboratory and medical offices as well as a number of new classrooms.
Principal Dr Christian Barkei said: “We are delighted to welcome back all our students and are very pleased indeed to be able to reopen safely after excellent examination results in the summer. We look forward to an exciting and engaging year with all our students and staff.”
St George’s starts the academic year on a high after the graduating students of 2020/21 achieved exceptional results in their A Level examinations. Seventy-six per cent received A* or A grades, and 99% of examinations were graded A* to C. The students received a 100% pass rate, with 58 of the 105 entries achieving the highest grade possible, an A*. All graduating students were offered places in their first-choice universities, with locations including the United Kingdom, Italy, the United States and Hong Kong.
In A/S Level examinations, 84% were graded A or B, which was a 12% increase from last year. Ninety-five per cent of examination papers achieved a grade C or above, with 104 of the 153 students taking A/S Levels receiving the highest grade possible, an A.
Of the 371 I/GCSE entries submitted in 20 subjects, 98% of students achieved grades A** to C, while 58% of all entries were awarded A or above. These students will now progress to Year 12 where they will study their chosen A/S level subjects.
