They have worked extremely hard over the past two years, and everyone at St Dunstan’s is incredibly proud of what they have achieved. Over the past five years our IB students have consistently performed above the worldwide and UK averages. They have won places at top universities including Cambridge, Oxford, Durham, Warwick and University College London. The breadth offered by the IB Diploma gives students the edge in our increasingly global society, preparing them for successful lives at university and beyond.”
