IB All The Way

International Baccalaureate  

The International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes aim to develop enquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed.

The IB programmes are designed to help assist learners to build a better world through intercultural understanding, and respect for others and the world around them.

The IB programmes are different from other curricula because they:

  • Encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions.
  • Encourage students to develop their individuality, independent of government and national systems.

Incorporate quality practice from research and our global community of schools.

  • Encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts.
  • Develop multilingual students.

A continuum of international education 

 IB provides a continuum of education, consisting of three programmes that incorporate the IB philosophy and underline the organisation's approach to learning and teaching. Each programme encourages personal and academic achievement while challenging students to excel in their studies and, importantly, their personal development. 

 Quality practice

 IB programmes incorporate quality practices from national and international research and the global community of IB schools. They encourage students to be internationally-minded as they continue to develop within a complex and hyper-connected world.

 Students learn how to learn

 IB students can take responsibility for their own learning and understand how knowledge is constructed; this concept is explored in the unique theory of knowledge (TOK) course. Students are encouraged to try different learning approaches to suit their learning style and take responsibility for their educational progress.
