Why study the IB?

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a high quality internationally recognised qualification undertaken by over 900,000 students in over 140 countries worldwide.

We encourage international-mindedness in IB students. To do this, we believe that students must first develop an understanding of their own cultural and national identity. All IB students learn a second language and the skills to live work with others internationally - essential for life in the 21st century.

We instill a positive attitude to learning by encouraging students to ask challenging questions, to reflect critically, to develop research skills, and to learn how to learn. All students participate in community service to further enrich their educational experience.

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.
