Registered charity 1101358 From the School of the Year, expect a winning formula. Maya Raman Jones came to Sevenoaks when she was eleven. In the Sixth Form she studied Chemistry, English, Maths, History, Biology, Russian and Theory of Knowledge. “At eleven I really loved English. Later on, the sciences turned my head! But as the IB curriculum at Sevenoaks is so broad, I didn’t have to choose between the arts and sciences until I applied to university – by which time I was sure Chemistry was the one for me.” Which explains why Maya is now reading Chemistry at the University of Oxford and dreaming of a PhD and a career in scientific research. Maya scored an impressive 44 in the International Baccalaureate (IB) and is now in her first year at Oxford. Our commitment to the IB is unwavering after 40 years, thanks to world-class, life-shaping results like this.
