Pupils at Gresham's School in Holt achieved four points above the global average on IB Diploma results day with an average score of 34 points.
Youngsters from the Upper Sixth cohort achieved a 100pc pass rate, and six pupils achieved over 40 points – a feat accomplished by fewer than 4pc of IB Diploma pupils globally.
The IB Diploma is an academically challenging programme of education with final examinations that prepare students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond.
Head of IB Peter Detnon said: 'I look forward to hearing about the impact they will have on our shared global society in the years to come, having benefited from the diploma's emphasis on developing globally-minded citizens.'
Gresham's headmaster Douglas Robb said it was 'an enormously rewarding day' to see the young people gaining the intellectual, social, cultural and linguistic skills they will need to fulfil their potential in life.
