Welcome to the DCIS Sixth Form!
After 45 years of respected preparatory education and excellent iGCSE results, DCIS is proud to offer three pathways in our Sixth Form Programme (Year 12 and Year 13) which prepare our students for progression 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.

As DCIS is part of Nord Anglia Education (NAE), a leading premium schools organisation, it is one of over 45 international schools worldwide. The majority of NAE schools offer the IBDP and achieve an average score in the IBDP of 33.5 points, significantly ahead of the 2017 global average of 30 points. 12% 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.
