LONDON, July 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Nord Anglia Education, the world's leading premium international schools organisation, today celebrated its students achieving outstanding results in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme for the 2020/21 academic year. This year was the strongest set of IB results in Nord Anglia's history for both the overall IB average score and pass rate.
IB examination scores climbed in every school in the Nord Anglia family with a 36.2 global point average. Results were higher than this year's global average of 33.02, outperforming other IB schools around the world. This marks the eighth consecutive year that Nord Anglia schools have surpassed global average scores.

Students across Nord Anglia's global family of schools also achieved an exceptional 98% pass rate, higher than last year's 96.9 % and once again exceeding the global average pass rate, which was 88.96%.
Students' outstanding performances (40 – 45 points) doubled to 29% compared to the previous year, with over twenty Nord Anglia students receiving a perfect score of 45.
