"GEMS Wellington Academy - Silicon Oasis offers massive congratulations to our IBDP students, who received their results this year. The upheaval and change that this cohort have endured is unprecedented in the 50-plus years since the launch of this qualification. That they have weathered this and emerged with such a fine set of grades is testament to them, their teachers and their parents.

2022 Results


2022 Results

Exceptional results

2022 was an exceptional year for WSO Y13 students. As you can see, our extraordinary pass rates, in the first year of full exams since the Covid-19 pandemic started to ease, are something we are incredibly proud of. All pathways secured record results and we are excited to build on these in 2023. Our teachers’ hundreds of years of accumulative experiences across IBDP, A-level, and BTEC ensure that all students, across all pathways, are offered equal opportunity to succeed. These results helped us send students to all four corners of the globe to study medicine, law, engineering, physics, maths, journalism, design and so much more.

GCSE Results


Everybody at WSO is so incredibly proud of this group of students, who have succeeded so well irrespective of the challenges that we all know they have had to face.  This set of results are a testament to their hard work and focus, the loving support of their families, and the diligent guidance of their teachers and all staff here at WSO. 

It’s always a special and uplifting day, to see students receive the key to the next phase of the educational journey, and we are most proud of the fact that almost all of these students are choosing to continue this journey with us.  Whether taking A Levels, IBDP, BTECS or one of our bespoke programs, there is a path for every one of them here, and we are excited to help them continue to write their own stories and realise their ambitions.
