Netball success | Redmaids' High School
The Redmaids’ High IB Diploma class of 2019 kicked off the summer’s exam results in style, with several, clearly inspired by their global studies, now moving onto further international fields of study.
A number will be starting degrees in international law, politics, economics and international relations next year.
The globally-recognised qualification involves studying three subjects at ‘higher level’ and three subjects at ‘standard level’ enabling students to maintain breadth and depth of learning.
Seven girls earned 35 or more points out of a maximum possible of 45, including four who gained 40 or more points. Many far exceeded their predicted scores.
Loveday, who gained the highest score of 42, excitedly said: “I’m blown away”, and “I’m so grateful to the school and my teachers”.
Caitlin earned an excellent 37 points. Both girls are now heading to King’s College, London to study English Law and German Law, and English Law and French Law respectively.
Caitlin’s interest in law and politics grew when in Year 11 she was elected to Bristol’s Youth Council, and then as a Sixth Former became a Member of the UK Youth Parliament.
She said: “I would one day like a career in politics, but first I want to study law and gain some life experience so that I can better represent people’s views as a politician.”
Immy scored 39 points and is going to the University of Manchester to embark on Geography with International Studies.
Former Head Girl, Niki, who gained 40 points, has two different career paths in mind. She is taking a year out to pursue her film career before applying to study either medicine or PPE – philosophy, politics and economics.
Headmistress Isabel Tobias said: “We encourage all our students to be free thinking and outward looking and they are naturally influenced by the many world issues and political activity taking place around us.
“I am very proud of what this class have already achieved and will watch with interest as they carve out their futures.”
