2016 KHDA Analysis of the DP years

English: Outstanding
In English, attainment and progress were outstanding. Most students’ work was consistently above age related expectations. Results were above international standards and had been successfully maintained. Students held intellectual and often philosophical conversations with each other, concerning issues raised in their texts. Most were avid readers and analysed the style of authors in detail. Inspired by writers and poets, they wrote extensive passages on political and social issues from different countries around the world. Their arguments were coherent and logical. They had a solid knowledge of grammar and punctuation. Their vocabulary was extensive and their sentence structure was accurate and used effectively to match the subject discussed.

Mathematics: Good
In mathematics, the majority of students achieved levels of attainment above curriculum and international standards. However, attainment varied and the students at standard and higher level were performing better than the mathematical studies group which catered for a greater range of ability. Students made good progress in lessons and over time so that students in Grade 13, were skilled in solving complex problems, for example in algebra and trigonometry. They gave carefully thought-out reasons for their methods and could apply their previous knowledge well. However students' skills in thinking critically and applying their understanding to real life applications were not developed systematically. The school had maintained consistent levels of attainment over time.

Science: Outstanding
In science, the large majority of students had knowledge, skills and understanding that were above the curriculum standards, although, this was inconsistent across the different science disciplines. Students had developed effective investigation skills in achieving outcomes of the required practical components in their science classes. They were able to express their ideas and understandings very clearly and when challenged were able to justify these understandings with sound reasoning. The progress of students with SEND was very good. Attainment levels of students were above or in line with comparative DP world averages.

Learning Skills in the DP: Outstanding

Diploma Level Teaching for Effective Learning: Very Good

Diploma Curriculum Quality: Outstanding
