Educational Philosophy & Programmes
Our teaching and learning environment is based on the philosophy and programmes of the International Baccalaureate organisation (and in particular the IB Learner Profile) as well as the school's Guiding Statements (Vision Narrative, Values and Learning Principles).
The diagram below shows how the school combines its own Learning Principles with the IB Learner Profile. The Students Outcomes represent our 'Promise' to Students.
Students are challenged within an academic programme that is concepts-driven and skills-driven, which provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge 'tool box', to help them become successful in tomorrow's uncertain world. Rather than simply learning knowledge and content, we now know that it is critically important that students be able to analyse, interrogate and question knowledge in order to compete against automation and artificial intelligence.
Our school was recently reauthorised by the IBO in April 2019 to provide the full continuum of IB programmes. This reauthorisation coupled with the full accreditation awarded by the Council of International Schools, provides third party evidence of the quality of our programmes.
