IB All The Way


The International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes aim to do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. 

The programmes strive to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect. 

The IB's programmes are different from other curricula because they:

  • Encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions.
  • Develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating 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 are united by the IB's philosophy and approaches to learning and teaching. The programmes encourage both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development. 

Quality practice

IB programmes incorporate quality practice from national and international research and the IB global community. They encourage students to be internationally-minded, within a complex and hyper-connected world. 

Students learn how to learn 

Students are able to take responsibility for their own learning and understand how knowledge itself is constructed; this is further to the unique theory of knowledge (TOK) course. They are encouraged to try different approaches to learning and to take responsibility for their own educational progress.
