In addition to the Choral Scholarship he won earlier this year, Amatey will take up a place to read Human, Social & Political Science and at Jesus College, Cambridge.
Headmistress, Mrs Davies, commented: “I am absolutely delighted with these results. All the students have worked extremely hard over the past two years and everyone at St Dunstan’s is incredibly proud of them. Our IB students continue to perform well above the worldwide and UK IB averages. Once more, they have won places at top universities including Cambridge, Durham, Bristol, Nottingham and Exeter. The breadth, as well as the depth, offered by the IB Diploma gives students the edge in our increasingly global society, preparing them for successful lives at university and beyond.”
