Academic Excellence

Another year of outstanding results

Garden International School’s consistently outstanding academic results place us amongst the best British international schools in the world.

Year after year, our students surpass themselves and achieve some of the highest-scoring A Level and IGCSE results in the region. This year, our cohort of 222 Year 11 and 13 students were in the minority across the globe to sit externally assessed examinations, awarded by Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE). 

84% of the 29 subjects taught at IGCSE and 21 subjects at A Level culminated in examination papers in May / June 2021. With excellent results across the board, we once again see evidence of the high standard of teaching at GIS.

2021 Key Academic Achievements

These outstanding results are a testament to our personalised learning approach that strives to bring out the best in everyone at GIS. Our students have shown once again that hard work, perseverance and determination are the keys to success. During what has been a challenging year for many, the attentive support and guidance from our teaching staff has proven invaluable.

Due to the anomalous circumstances of last year, the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards 2020 did not go ahead as planned. In the event that the CAIE decides to continue the awards in 2021, the results will not be announced until November. We will update students and parents as soon as more information is made available to us.
