The school is an English curriculum school. Students are entered for the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) examination at the end of Year 11 when they are 16, and for the A (Advanced) Level examination at the end of Year 13 when they are 18. All examinations are set by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
At IGCSE the school averages 85% of all examinations at grade C and above, with 40% of our IGCSE grades at A or A*. Most of our students each take 8 IGCSEs.
At AS (Advanced Subsidiary) Level, taken at the end of Year 12, our students on average achieve a 95% pass rate with around 50% of grades at A or B. This examination is the first half of the full A Level.
At A2, the full A Level taken at the end of Year 13, our students in most years achieve a 100% pass rate with an average of nearly 60% of grades at A*/A/ B.
Every year our students win CIE prizes which in recent years have included the Top in Thailand prizes in popular subjects such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
St. Stephen’s International School, Bangkok, is celebrating its best ever IGCSE results. Year 11 students achieved a 92% A* - C pass rate and, even more impressively, 52% of the grades awarded were either A or A*. This is above the previous best performance and well above UK levels. In addition 50% of students achieved 5 or more A*/A grades and 97% of students achieved 5 A* - C grades.
Of particular note were:
- Earn who achieved 7 A* and 2 A grades
- Ben who achieved 6 A*, 1 A and 1B grades
- Tigger who achieved 5 A*, 2 A and 1 B grade
Principal John Rolfe said:
“These results are absolutely outstanding, and a great credit to both the students and teachers. The results are particularly gratifying as we are not an academically selective school. I am also particularly pleased to see that the vast majority of Year 11 students achieved grades A* - C in the IGCSE First Language English examination; a considerable achievement for second language learners. The standard, and number, of students moving into the Sixth Form bodes very well for this important area. Congratulations to all.”
Results were also very good at AS and A level with a 94% pass rate across all examinations.
In Year 13 36% of the grades awarded were either A or A*.
Of particular note were:
- Cherie who achieved 2 A* and 2 A grades
- York who achieved 1A* 2 A and I B grade
All of the Year 13 students a obtained a place at their first choice university with the majority attending universities in the UK.
New Head of Secondary, Dr. Kevin Hylands, said:
“It is great to see students with such high aspirations being so successful in their A level studies and progressing onto high quality universities.”
