As I am sure our whole school community has already heard, our IB Diploma Class of 2015 simultaneously smashed our own school record and achieved the highest average score in the whole of Thailand. We are immensely proud of the hard work and dedication shown by these students, combined with the support provided to them by both their families and their teachers.
These students have gone on to some of the most prestigious universities in the world, including, in the UK, Cambridge, University College London and London School of Economics; and in the US, UCLA, Chicago and Penn State. We wish them well as they continue to represent The Regent’s School as our alumni in the wider world.
This week we welcomed another 37 students into our Sixth Form as the Class of 2017 and hope they enjoy the journey they have just begun. The group consists of students from Armenia, China, Kenya, Japan, England, Thailand, Nepal, Estonia, Nigeria, India, Finland, Italy, the Republic of Korea and the Kingdom of Bhutan.
With their tutors, they took part in a range of introductory activities to the course of study and discussed some of the key requirements which they must fulfil. In addition to this, they began to work as teams in a range of activities designed to help them to understand each other. Great fun was had by all and we hope our new Sixth Form students continue to grow as a team this year.
