SI Students Achieve Record-Breaking IELTS Results

70% of students achieve band 6 or above...

This year, students from Sherborne International, taking the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam (General Training) have achieved record-breaking results with 70% achieving band 6 or above.

The IELTS exam is recognised internationally by schools and universities as a measure of a student’s language proficiency.

It has band scores from 9 (expert-user) to 1 (non-user), so for 70% of our students to gain band 6 or above at this stage in their education is an excellent achievement.  These results do not include our top linguistic students who take English Literature instead of the IELTS exam.

Many students achieved above their predicted band scores, some by two whole bands, and several students achieved extremely high scores within the individual components of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

“Congratulations to all of our successful students!”
