The International Baccalaureate Programme

A number of our schools offer the Primary Years Programme and Middle Years Programme, and most of our schools offer the rigorous International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for 16 – 19 year olds.

Age 3 –11

The Primary Years Programme focuses on the development of the whole child with a powerful emphasis on inquiry based learning. Students explore six themes of global significance using the knowledge and skills aquired from six subject areas:

  • Language
  • Social studies
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Arts
  • Physical, social and personal education 
Age 11 - 16

The Middle Years Programme encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. Students study eight subject groups which includes at least two languages, humanities, sciences, mathematics, arts, physical education and technology. Five interactive areas run through the year giving a global context for learning. In their final year, students will also undertake an independent ‘personal project’ to demonstrate the development of their skills and understanding.

Age 16 – 18

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme supports Nord Anglia Education’s belief in curriculum as the entire planned learning experience. Students are challenged by a broad curriculum, choosing courses within six key subject areas:

  • Language - generally the student's native language, with over 80 different languages available alongside individual literature options
  • Second language – an additional language
  • Individuals and societies – humanities and social sciences courses including Business and Management, Economics, Geography, History, Information Technology in a global society, Islamic history, Philosophy, Psychology, and Social and cultural anthropology
  • Experimental sciences – Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Design Technology and Environmental Systems 
  • Mathematics and Computer Science – Mathematical Studies, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Computer Science
  • The Arts – Music, Theatre, Visual Arts and Film

Additionally, students must also fulfil three core requirements – complete an extended essay, attend a theory of knowledge course, and participate in creative, action and service activities.
