International Baccalaureate Top Scholars

Rangitoto College’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme students performed remarkably well in 2020, with two of our highest achieving students gaining Top Scholar Awards. Guy Wearn earned 43 points and Grace Blakey earned 41 points—this puts Guy in the top 3% of the world and Grace in the top 7%. 

The IB Diploma Programme is an academically-challenging programme of education that strives to prepare students for the modern world. The diploma runs over two years and offers a range of subjects. Internationally recognised, it requires students to succeed in a number of areas, through the strands of Theory of Knowledge, Community, Action, Service, and Extended Essay. 

Rangitoto students gained an average score of 32, above the world average of 29.90. Immense thanks goes to our team of specialist IB teachers, and IB coordinator Catherine Brandt. Catherine joined us in 2020 from GEMS Wellington Academy - Silicon Oasis in Dubai, and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the college. 

Rangitoto College is proud of the high standard of our IB programme and looks forward to seeing the success of the 2021 cohort later this year.
