Sixth Form Curriculum

Students study the IB Diploma in the Sixth Form.  

Subjects 

Students choose one option from each group, selecting 3 subjects to study at Higher Level (HL) and 3 at Standard Level (SL) as well as the Core programme.  

Each subject attracts a maximum of 7 points, regardless of the level studied, and the Core supplies the extra 3 points to make the maximum mark of 45. The Diploma is awarded to students achieving at least 24 points.

The Core

The Extended Essay (EE) asks students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the subjects they are studying.    

Theory of Knowledge (TOK) provides an opportunity to explore the commonalities and differences between the knowledge claims across your IB subjects. In this course, students inquire into the nature of how knowledge is produced and accepted by individuals and academic disciplines.  

Creativity, Activity Service (CAS) involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies. Creativity encourages students to engage in the arts and creative thinking. Activity seeks to develop a healthy lifestyle through physical activity. Service with the community offers a vehicle for new learning with academic value.
