Educational Philosophy & Programmes
Our teaching and learning environment is centred on the philosophy and programmes distributed by the International Baccalaureate Organization - in particular, the IB Learner Profile - in addition to the school's Guiding Statements (Vision Narrative, Values and Learning Principles).
The diagram below presents an overview of how the school combines its Learning Principles with the IB Learner Profile. The Student Outcomes depict our 'promise' to students who gain a first-class education with us.
Students are challenged within an academic programme that is concept and skills driven. The curriculum, therefore, provides students with a 'toolbox' of necessary skills and knowledge to help them succeed 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, evaluate and expand their knowledge to compete against automation and artificial intelligence.
In April 2019, our school was re-authorised by the IBO to provide the full continuum of IB programmes. This re-authorisation, coupled with the full accreditation awarded by the Council of International Schools, provides third-party evidence of the quality of our programmes.
