I’m not sure what pathway I want to take after Sixth Form, so the IB keeps my options open. I like carrying on my language, French, as enjoy learning to communicate in another language. Megan, Year 13.
“The IB Diploma has given me a well-rounded education, and thus has helped me to approach Medicine more holistically. Whether it was Latin coming in handy for learning anatomy or Geography giving me a deeper understanding of global health and the effects of population and politics on the health service. Additionally, the research skills taught in Chemistry and Biology helped to prepare me for my research project during my intercalation year. Furthermore, my improved ability of English and having done the Extended essay made the Dissertation less daunting!” Jess Dowle, Alumna.
“There is such a breadth we can experience and we always notice links between what we are studying”. Harry Year 13
“The IB was great preparation for university and I feel that it may be one of the reasons why I coped so well with university life. It teaches students to organise their time efficiently by juggling an increased work load with sports, hobbies as well as other commitments such as prefect duties”.
“After much agonising, I decided to do IB and I have never once regretted it. The IB syllabus is new and modern, it teaches you practical skills essential to everyday life”.
“I enjoy the linking of subjects. For example, Chemistry has natural links with Biology; when we are learning about the production of aspirin in chemistry, we can understand the impact it has on the human body in biology”. Charlotte Year 13
