Around ¾ of IGS students now move on to a range of university destinations including Oxbridge and music conservatoire, with an impressive 80% (102 students) gaining places at their first choice universities today, with all other students moving into employment or taking a gap year in 2018-19.

We are extremely proud of the class of 2018 and I’d like to thank all of the staff at IGS who have worked so hard over the last two years to support our students to gain these high levels of success once again. Well done to everyone!”< Back to all news stories
