Welcome to the brand new Sixth Form at DCIS!
After 45 years of respected preparatory education and excellent iGCSE results, DCIS is proud to planning to offer three pathways in our new Sixth Form Programme (Year 12 and Year 13) from August 2017 which give our students the opportunity to progress to the next step in their education.
Pathway 1: DCIS International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme
Pathway 2: IB Courses
Pathway 3: Department of Supportive Education (DSE)
At DCIS, we have chosen the IB Diploma Programme because it offers an academically and personally challenging experience which also rewards dedication and hard work. It is a course of study that is widely recognised by university and college admissions departments as a rigorous and demanding education programme that prepares students very well for studying at degree level. Due to the international acceptance of the course it is highly appropriate for most students no matter in which country or institution the student is interested in continuing their education.
DCIS students can look forward to a supportive, dynamic and demanding Sixth Form experience with the added benefit of many years IBDP experience from the Nord Anglia Education global family of schools. Read the Nord Anglia Education Academic Profile here.

Outstanding Scholarship Opportunity for Select Students
We are making an exceptional offer for select students to receive partial scholarships for the inaugural International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) at Dover Court International School (DCIS).
DCIS now has the IB Diploma Programme and is an authorised IB World School. The IB Diploma is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepare students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond. The programme is recognised by over 2,000 of the world’s leading universities.
As DCIS is part of Nord Anglia Education (NAE), a leading premium schools organisation, it is one of over 40 international schools worldwide. The majority of NAE schools offer the IBDP and achieve an average score in the IBDP of 34.0 points, significantly ahead of the 2016 global average of 30.1 points. 15% of NAE students achieved 40 points and above, and one in three NAE graduates go on to attend one of the world's top 100 universities, as ranked by QS World University Rankings.
Nord Anglia Education also provides unique opportunities which benefit our students and community, including the Global Campus (with expeditions to Tanzania and Switzerland), Nord Anglia University and NAE collaborations with The Juilliard School and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
